Yep and watching them sparring with regular people is incredible too. Just to see the absolute skill of the top level professionals, they are so damn polished. Seeing them in the ring alone doesn't allow you to fully appreciate it until you either a) do it yourself or b) see them fighting normal guys. There used to be a reality show where Arturo Gatti sparred regular guys, can't remember the name, but fukc it was funny how easy he could handle them.
