Default How to prepare for boxing class?

Finally rid of all my injuries and I want to focus all my free time on boxing now. My dorm is also near a great boxing gym and to make sure I dont get injured training and keep up I want to do a few weeks/month of home training to prepare myself.

Right now I'm doing:
-Combinations without gloves and with 16oz to get used to the weight
-Push-ups these really help with upper body endurance I've noticed
-Practicing wrapping my hands using a youtube video, I injured my wrist and fingers several times during muay thai classes due to bad wrapping.
-Jogging to build up a good cardio

Anything else I should add or will doing this for a while give me a solid base? I will start back at the beginners anyway

jog (endurance will be your BEST friend)
do some intense interval cardio (if your body can handle it)
do multi-step calisthenics in sets (squat thrusts, 8 count body builders)
do punch burn outs wearing your gloves (just punch air until your arms burn)

Nothing will give you too strong a base other than being physically fit. Even then, the mind body confusion will kick your butt anyway.

Good luck!

I've sprained my thumbs before but that's about it. It's common to hurt your knuckles and wrists, but fingers? How did that happen?
