I would've thought that a slip line would be very boxing specific, slipping is a big part of boxing and especially if you want to be a 'slickster'.
And I disagree, those other things will make you a better fighter. You improve strength and motor learning is enhanced as there are less central resources used due to the lesser activation, you improve cardio and you have the energy to use your skills and practice with more freshness and concentration. Yoga helps your awareness of your body so you are more coordinated.
