When she is sparring or moving at all really, 1/30 second shutter speed will usually give you blurry shots at 50mm. You will probably need to increase ISO and get that shutter speed way up if you don't want to use flash.

However, a little motion blur can be great but only when used properly (like the fist and arm slightly blurred but the boxer sharp, showing a punching action)

What scared me off was going above 1600. I asked her if we could revisit some shots. I am going to bump to 1600-3200 and bring my shutter up to hopefully 640. 2.8 is the sweetspot. I will take care of some of the noise in PP. I am learning, I am learning.

It's always a balancing act in this situation. It's good that you understand that. A noisy shot is always better than a completely blurry shot. Try find that shutter speed that allows her to stay sharp but the fists to blur very slightly, you may be able to keep the ISO down a little that way. Aperture 2.8 is where I like to stay too before depth of field becomes razor thin, but remember from f/2.8 to f/2.0 is a full stop, allowing you to half your ISO for the same exposure, so you can play with that if you can get away with it.
