In all the years I have been watching boxing and learning about sports management, I've seen many come and go. Boxers with great potential and a willingness to try to become the best, sometimes do not achieve all they can. There is an exact formula to success in boxing and none of the components can be missing.
There are important factors that go into a great boxing career. One of the most important is a great trainer, who is a crucial piece of the puzzle if you want to become a successful boxer. The boxer is the most important member of the team, but there are many things young athletes just don't know that trainers must apprize them of, while bringing out the best of their talent. Knowledgeable trainers with real experience and a full understanding of the sport are essential in passing on this knowledge to their pupils.
Some underestimate the value of a great trainer. It cannot be emphasized enough how vital a great trainer is to a boxer's career if there is to be a high level of achievement. If you do not have the right trainer to mold your talent, repeatedly showing you where you are going wrong until you get it right and keep getting it right, you will not reach your full potential. Different trainers have different techniques and some are better than others in getting real results.
You can train in the gym all day, but if your technique and practice habits are wrong, you are reinforcing what is and will become a serious problem and hurdle in your career. A great trainer will spot all the problems and correct them (provided the boxer is cooperative). A great trainer will also know all the tricks of the trade, the best training regimens and how to mentally and physically hone a hopeful into a well rounded boxer. The right trainer can turn a boxer into a champion in what is a joint effort.
