You can't put a time on something like that. Train when you can, boxing isn't your life.

When I'm training for a fight. I'd be at the boxing gym 4-5x a week.
Run about 4-5x a week as well. If I'm not running, I'm doing weights.

You'll know based on your skills in sparring, conditioning, etc.

It's not how many sessions you have but how well you train. You could only train twice a week if it was intense enough and structured well to enhance your skills.

ehhh.....most would recommend at least two days...if your only doing 2 days you are leaving too many days off...also, from a conditioning stand point, I have seen charts that show what a huge difference that third day makes.

You've seen a chart? Wow, you must know the truth for everybody then. As part of a well periodised plan with some solid base work, then intense training twice a week is sufficient to maintain all the markers of fitness.

Yeah. I suppose if he doesn't get his 5 hours, 43 minutes and 16 seconds of training each week he'll never be a champion.
