The best amateur team in the world are the Ukrainians, all aggressive and throw combinations. Here's a video of their training, they seem to emphasise a lot of upper body movement. They also spend a lot of time doing things that aren't boxing specific, playing games and other sports just to improve general coordination and awareness. At 11:11 you can see their heavyweight gold medallist walking on his hands which I find pretty impressive.

it's an eye opener thats for sure.
