If you want to be a fighter, get used to a 3 minute on, 1 minute off pattern with the use of supersets and active rests, ensure every exercise is giving you more than one muscle group and that it's an explosive movement. What is said above is absolutely true, if you want to be a boxer, you have to box, you have to spar - but also get your body clock working to the rhythm that suits what you're going to be doing.

Hence 3 minutes on, 1 minute off is a good way of getting used to powerful explosive movements (punching) combined with leg work (footwork) and core work (movement, pivoting, strength) and then being able to recover in the mini breaks you get in rounds combined with the longer break at the end of the round.
