    I would beg to differ, I'm sure that aerobic power plays a significant role when you are a top level professional boxer in a title fight that is going a full 12 rounds, but for a beginner as an amateur you will probably start boxing for three 2-minute rounds, moving up to 4 2-minute rounds. Even as a beginning pro fighter many of your fights will probably be 4 rounds. I would definitely focus on getting great anaerobic fitness if you want to take up boxing.

    Aerobic fitness is VERY important to boxing due to the number of rounds.

    Limit strength is not a crucial element to boxing at all, due to the basically nonexistent load on sport movements( that you do them with no external resistance other than the weight of a glove).
    for any sport you want to play.
    You do know there is a lot of contact in boxing, a lot of clinching, pushing shoving etc.'... going toe to toe for even one round is very similar to grappling. You also have to consider he is going to tens up when sparring for a good while (up to a year) so saying he doesn't need anaerobic is pretty ignorant. only the weight of the glove as resistance? that is wrong in so many levels...

    Thanks for the answers, everyone.

    A little bit of update in my routine:

    Now everyday I do:

    * 10km jog
    * 1000 jumping ropes
    * 40 push-ups
    * 300 sit-ups
    * 50 min kendo session

    Currently I am not really timing each of that because I am aiming to lose some weight (I am currently 74 kg and I wish to drop to 72) so I am just doing as much as I can. Do let me know if that is not a right way.

    The best cardio comes from plyometrics in my opinion.
    To be honest, I didn't really believe this when I was doing just 100 sit ups. Now, although I can't really say it is the best, it really demands a lot of cardio, judging by all the amount of sweat. I can definitely see your point. Still, so far my favorite is jogging.

    for a beginner as an amateur you will probably start boxing for three 2-minute rounds, moving up to 4 2-minute rounds.
    I do wish to compete in amateur boxing if I can find time between my studies. I thought it was 3 3-minute rounds but I guess I was wrong.

    From what I've seen from all the matches, it seems to me that anaerobic aspect is really important. I prefer to act like a berserker whenever I get into any kind of fight so anaerobic would definitely help me.

    I'd try and get access to a gym if I were you. Weightlifting is good ****.

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I agree with you. I was planning to getting into a gym when I arrive and get things settled in America.

    I believe that I am getting enough of that one.
