Default what about weight training?

In the "complete beginner guide" posted below I didnt see much for weight training involved. I am a newbie and was wondering how I can fit my weight training into my new boxing routines? Or do I exclude my bench pressing, bicep curls, skullcrushers, etc? The reason why I ask is because I am 185 lbs right now with 10% bodyfat and my goal was to start fighting at 178 lb class by going down to 6% bodyfat so that I don't lose any of my muscle that I worked so hard to gain throughout the last year that I have been lifting weights. I can guarentee ill lose a lot of power from about a 10 lb muscle loss if I follow the routine posted in the message below. Is it ok for me (a real newbie) to continue my weight training or do I drop it to strictly follow the routine listed in the last message?

don't drop it, especially if you're in a heavier weight class. That routine is a general outline, not the absolute best.

work your lats because when your chins tucked that actually helps you take punches to the chin better.

Stick with your weight training especially at 178.
STFU fool, you sound confused, if you dont know dont say it!

bench press dont work the lats.

if you wanna do weight lifting start off with compound lifts such as squats, benchpress, deadlift, and military press, you can then move onto the more advanced movements such as the clean and jerk etc

stick to 4-5 reps.

Your right about the weightlifting with compound lifts...Your wrong about the bench press. Bench press works the lats somewhat. Bench press imitates a punch and when you punch you use yours lats somewhat. Really it depends how you do bench press. You can make it work your shoulders and triceps more, or work your chest more. Be sure to use correct form for what you want to work.
