You don't think strength training is a part of fitness? Enjoy being mediocre. Punching power makes a big difference these days and it will be more important when the headgear comes off and the new scoring is introduced. Nobody is going to suggest to lift weights instead of improving boxing skills, you should do both. Get your head out of the sand.
