Well like 4-5 fights before mine i start jumping,pacing around and shadowboxing but really lightly and it picks up as i get to the fight.
Then 2 fights before mine i get my wraps and gloves and start hitting pads like 3-4 combinations 2 times and then i rest,i do this procedure couple of times.
Thats it.

People are different, Pecho's routine sounds pretty standard.
Me personally, I need a longer warmup to get warm mentally and physically.
So i'm usually wrapped up, dressed and shadowboxing 5 fights before mine.
Then hitting mitts with my trainer 1 or 2 fights before. Of course, nothing too heavy.
You want to work up a light sweat and be warm, but nothing over the top.

Yap,some do it differently,i have a friend who goes in dry as sand,cause he believes he will be fresher.But it works for him.
On the other side i found out i bring nervousness down if i put a towel around my head(so i dont see anything) when im walking to the ring.

Warm up like any other workout. Stretching, hopping/skipping, athletic eccentric/concentric movements(not sure how to clarify), shadow boxing/boxing drills, if you're muscular a couple push ups will activate your muscle. Do whatever warms your body up.

Like pencho said, pacing is a good idea. Great for getting your mind into the right place.
