Coach Izzy and I crossed the 700-round mark July 5, 2017. Then we switched from 2-minute rounds (doing 6 rounds per session) to 3-minute rounds (4 rounds per session).
We did 5 3-minute rounds for a couple of sessions, and then moved up to 6 3-min. rounds, twice a week.

840 rounds and counting
Always honored to salute my great boxing coach, Israel Gonzales, the man behind Izzyduzitfitness. On Oct. 31, 2017, we sparred round #840 (date of pictures left & center above). We started sparring in late October 2015, so it took us 2 years to rack up this number of rounds. It's a good thing the coach can modify his punches or we would have had to stop about the time we started.

area where the hot sauce will stick.
"In the end, our winner was once again the aptly named Bull’s-Eye Original BBQ Sauce. This moderately sweet, tomatoey sauce offered just enough
spice and smoke, producing a well-balanced medley of flavors with no specific flavor dominating. Our winning product was delicious and versatile,
and it wasn’t too thick or thin. We’ll be using this palate-pleasing sauce all summer long." (Quoted from www.cooksillustrated.com.)
