Lightbulb 3 strongest boxing attributes 2 weakest attributes

I've decided to find out what are your best 3 boxing attributes are and your 2 worst attributes.

My Strongest Attributes
1) Power - Not to be arrogant but I have amazing power. My trainer was originally going to have me lose weight since I am small for a heavyweight (6'0) but then he realized the power now he wants me to gain weight and go from 205 to 235 in muscle and if I grow some more great if not I still have heavyweight power.
2) Hand Speed - I can beat the punch. I still need to be faster but my handspeed with my power has been there from the beginning.
3) Desire - I have the desire to do it professionally and am going to...bottom line.

Weaknesses
1) Foot Work - My power is amazing but my footwork sometimes weakens it where I am off balance.
2) Agility- My body does not move as fast as my minds tells it to, should start to with the longer I box though.

1. Agility - I have powerful legs and good balance.
2. Footwork - I work on it a lot and my legs help.
3. Speed - I'm pretty explosive. I really need to work on my timing though.

1. Stamina - I've always struggled in this department. I walk around with about 9% bodyfat so it's not like I'm fat. Just my genetics I guess.
2. Experience - Haven't been boxing for very long. Have a video of me sparring if anyone wants to check it out.

Heart- I never give up no matter how tired or hurt I am.
Footwork- Pretty solid, I stay on balance
Form/Technique- Goes with my footwork, pretty solid.

Experience- Always need more experience.
Stamina- I need to run more often for longer periods of time in order to have the gains I need in this area. I need to be able to last for 4-5 rounds of intense sparring but so far I am having trouble doing 3.

+'s
1) Jab. I have a good heavy jab. I'll hit you in the mouth and body guaranteed.
2) Reach. I've got a decent reach advantage most of the time.
3) Right hand. Once that jab starts pumping, its only a matter of time before I hit you with the right.

-'s
1) Experience. Been doing this for over a year and still feel like a newbie sometimes.
2) Defense: I need to work on slipping and blocking punches more.

1. Jab. My trainer says my jab is very good. I know it to because I can seem to tag anyone w/ it even if they are a very fast fighter.
2.Power. My coach says i have some talent for natural punching power.
3. Speed, lots of ppl I spar with say I am quick and I feel fast too.

Weaknesses.
Stamina: I have been working alot harder on this and I truly believe it might be the most important thing in boxing besides heart.
Footwork: This could really be alot better. I seem off balance at times.

1) I am good at Fight Night Round 3
2) I watch boxing, and even classic boxing on TV
3) I made a youtube vid of me hitting a heavybag with metal music in the background

1) Since I have such mad KO power I can't find a bag that doesn't bust.
2) My swinging backfist is awesome, if it were legal in boxing I'd be heavyweight champ.

For every strength you have, it can also be a weakness. The only way to make the best of what you are, is knowing how to manipulate the two to get the best result.

Strengths:

Stamina
Chin
Left-handed power (I'm a southpaw, and had pretty good sock in the left, and punched like an eight-year old girl with the right. Just pawed with it, it was embarrassing).


Weaknesses: (Only TWO??)

Agility
Speed

..........I'm sorry, I have to continue......

Overal athleticism
Jab
Right hand
Defense
