rule of thumb but more or less. how exactly is that dumb?
You can't put a time on something like that. It's the individual's ability to learn and translate those skills in the ring as well as their individual work capacity that makes them a boxer. Some will learn in a few months others a few years before they get it.
There's far too many varibles indivuidual to individual to put any kind of time scale on learning and conditioning.
