So many, far too many, teach boxing as an exercise you can get good at by doing something else and that simply is not true. I don't give a screaming **** how far you can run or how high you can jump...has nothing at all to do with your boxing ability. If you ALREADY know how to fight, it may well enhance that ability. In and of itself it will not make you a good fighter. Learn how to fight. That creates the muscle memory that allows you to slip, counter, turn a guy, all the things that make you slick. Nothing else has **** all to do with it because it is based on boxing specific knowledge and you acquire boxing specific knowledge only by boxing.
I don't know you from a bar of soap, I said that saying boxing skills are 1000% independent from other activities was moronic.
We're on the same page, I'm not saying to do those things instead of boxing, I'm saying add those things on top of your training and you'll improve your ability to be slick. I don't know what gave you the impression that I was saying to do yoga instead of boxing.
