You should wear a proper boxing foul guard, http://store.titleboxing.com/groin-protectors.html there’s a link to where you can find some decent ones, they’re bulkier and more expensive than a cup but if you’re serious about boxing and not getting punched in the crotch Johnny Cage style, it’s worth the investment.

yes you should always wear a cup even though its just training you will be protected and no accident can hurt you its better to be protected then to not be

honestly I learned in football .. if your coach/trainer says wear a cup..do it they may jokingly test if you listened lol

and that hurts.. plus it is your trainer ..you have to listen to them your career or w/e is in their hands for now if you can’t even listen to them about a cup how do you think they look at you after that..

now when you go pro if you fight a dirty fighter def wear 1 ..if you fight a clean fighter your choice..

but I would def wear 1 for awhile ..also to get use to wearing 1 of those b!tches..hate them 2
