Default Beginner getting into boxing

Hi, My name is Henno. I'm 19 years old.
I'm really keen to get into boxing training. I've always loved watching the sport, especially the old fights. I did a little bit of boxing a couple of years ago but now want to take it seriously, training 5-6 times a week. I do weight training 6 times a week and have packed on some decent size. I've got a garage with a punch bag, gloves, training pads, jump rope. I've looked at a beginners routine on here, but would like to stick to my current weight training routine in the evening and boxing around mid-day.

Would something like this be a good beginners routine?:
5am - 4-5 mile run 5 times a week
11:30 - 30 mins on exercise bike
13:30 - Bag training (Not sure how long to train for or what exactly to do?)
10 mins or so on jump rope
7pm - weight training

Would I benefit from buying a speed bag?

My diet is on point.
There is a boxing club near me but they only have beginners classes twice a week for one hour. Is that worth going to or am I best sticking to my own routine? I was thinking of doing this for a few months and then getting a personal trainer, I was looking and found one in Melton Mowbray called Hardknocks run by Paul Butlin, I see he is a professional heavyweight, charges £25 per hour, Would this be good say 5 times a week after doing my routine for a few months? I just need someone who knows their stuff to tell me what to do, I will give full commitment and not mess about, I want to make a career of boxing. Thanks. Henno.

5am - 4-5 mile run 5 times a week--- Dont do this. You are not a marathon runner.
And second, dont ever train alone or teach yourself cause youll end up with bad habits and bad fundamentals.
Get to the gym.

Don't do too much running? How about 3 times a week 4 miles?
So what can I do at home to progress ?as I currently can't join a club because it's 30miles away, so wanted to prepare so I don't turn up and lose my breath after 30 seconds (looking to join in a few months)

Maybe you can explain why you think you need to run so much?

If you're going to train in any sport you need to have a damn good reason for doing what you're doing. If you don't know what you're talking about I'd suggest you ask questions, take advice and learn instead of throwing out suggestions on what you think you should be doing (don't take that as an insult or a shot at you, just a suggestion to make you better).

Too much running. Run 2-3 miles 4-5 times a week. You could do 6 or so rounds on a heavy bag. Jump rope for about 3 rounds. Don't forget to do abdominal workouts and such. Weight training is good, but not too heavy.

Right! Sparring is the key ingredient it's what differentiates boxing from Kung-fu

Are you serious? Why do you think I'm here? I've clearly asked for advice on what to do in the meantime as I currently can't get to a gym, yet all I get is people saying join a gym. Seeing as you know it all maybe you could have given some advice instead of writing a useless reply telling me to do what I've clearly already done, asked for advice! And to answer your question I would think running increases cardio endurance and considering most boxers run I would have thought it would be a staple exercise.

Have you thought about joining a gym?

(You'd need to find one with a wall though, for the wall sits..)

To learn, hopefully.

Obviously the best advice you can give whether you have access to a gym or not.

My reply in no way referred to my knowledge. Why you think I "know it all" I don't know .

What I said, in so many words, was don't throw out what you think you know, ask questions and learn.

Pecho said not to do so much running. Instead of asking "why should I not run so much?" you just threw out another idea of how long you think you should run based on no knowledge whatsoever. Nothing really wrong with that, but you're far better off asking why and learning instead of throwing out random, baseless ideas.

Anyone can say "I'll run 5 miles 3 times a week" but is that really optimal for you and your current state? Looking at the end of your post, you don't really know why boxers run distance. Also, you won't be able to fully implement training techniques for yourself in the future if you don't learn the whys and hows of your training.

Again, not getting at you, just a suggestion.

BTW, weight training 6 times a week is most likely a bad idea for boxing. What is your routine?
