I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but that last part is just false. No man without training can end a boxing match in 2 seconds, because that kind of power has little to do with muscle.

I'm a huge advocate of universal training in preparation for a fight. Too much weightlifting ruins a practical body. I don't honestly think I've ever seen too much cardio ruin a boxer in my entire career, but you definitely want to space it out, and train in a lot of different ways.

when i say 2 secounds, i meant really short lol
but i think you get my point

ofcourse too much cardio wont ruin a career,
but i was talking specifically running....

it is a fact that it does severe damage over time to knees and ankles
espically if your a larger person,

also depends on the type of weight training,
a lot of bodybuilding style, yes can you slow you etc
but on the other hand its a wonderful
tool coming off an injury to re-build your body
or a body part
