Maybe the answer is to have the present boxing coaches educate themselves on different and improved training methods and techniques.
Who knows what the problem was.Usually from my experience boxers who start to work with s&c trainers resist a lot of stuff in training and its a pain in the ass to work with them.
Boxing coaches should get educated ofcourse,but thats not gonna happen,too much ego and pride.
