His idea of getting fit for a fight is to jog on a treadmill for 20 minutes a day and to "bench press heavier to make the punches faster and stronger". I am no Muhammed Ali myself but I've been in boxing a few months now and i'm sure i can beat him on technique and i will also be fitter, i'm doing bagwork groundwork skipping and roadwork 5 days a week. What would your advice be ? Should i use body punches to beat him ? And there will be two referees for the fight so it will be strictly punching only.
60 lbs is way too much of a size difference. The average 230 lbs guy hits hard and will probably have no major issues with your power.
A few months of boxing training isn't going to be that beneficial - watch any first time boxer Youtube.
