It doesn't really benefit your boxing. Your gloves will feel lighter when you lift them, but you won't be able to keep em up for long.

no your gloves will not really feel lighter (thats to do with endurance), bodybuilding is all about putting on mass, do you want to move up in weight class and fight people who punch twice as hard as you do?

Yes, your gloves will feel lighter. 20 Oz's are like a feather in Schwarzenegger's hands. His shoulders will get tired faster from keeping his hands up though. And yes, a person half his size might punch harder than him because his body doesn't nessicarily benefit his punching. Case closed.

Indeed just train for stonger muscles not bigger!

These examples are good for some punching power:

Barbell Squats
Chin-ups
Push-ups
Shoulder Front Press
Bicep curls

High reps low weight is the key.

Actually keeping reps at 3-5 is the key to strength & 8-10 for growth. High reps, low weight is endurance type training.

If you arent going to fight weight divisions dont matter, go do some curls.

Wait till you spar with someone who's just a Light Heavy and how strong they are. Heavyweight is a class you really need to grow into and naturally be comfortable at, otherwise it'll end painfully. You're about 5'9 and 150 or so, right?

I sparred a heavyweight once and kicked his ass

So far for the internet talk. Actually that's not what happened. He held back a lot since I already knew he hit like a mule. He's a big guy, 230 pounds or something. Still every punch that landed on me felt like running into a brick wall. The punches that landed on my guard hurt as well. It wasn't funny. I quit after two rounds because I got a little dizzy.

My "gameplan" was rather stupid too. I wanted to work on my inside game. Not a smart idea, despite him holding back. It didn't really matter though, any gameplan would have failed.
