Default how important are calisthenics ?

hey there ..

i just want to know how important are bodyweight workouts ( push up + pull up + sit up + squat .. ETC )
for boxing ?

i mean i always hear about running or weight training .. but what about calisthenics ?

1- how would they benefit a boxer ?
2- are they important ?
3- are they expendeble ? ( like doing only running and weight training )

appreciate your help

It is part of boxing and other fighting sports. Very important.

Depends how you want to train. They're good for conditioning, but by no means a requirement.
