From about 15 years old till I was 35, I did 70% boxing, 30% strength and conditioning; Road work every morning, gym on MWF,two boxing workouts a day with sparring on Saturday.

I'd say, now, it's 60-40 strength and conditioning. I'm in the gym working my hands 4 days a week, do my cardio every morning, and get some form of S&C every day. The reason for the shift- I'm getting older and slowing down, so its more essential than ever I be in shape, and I've come as far skillwise as I'll ever go, more time in the gym isn't gonna make me better.
although id think repetitive skill work is still important for timing?
