    Looking at Tyson Fury, I would say bodybuilding is irrelevant to success in boxing.

      Yet has some of the best conditioning + skill and basically cleaned out all the heavyweights. It doesn’t make any sense, must be some gypsy black magic at work.

    Hmmm it's hard to say. Alot of boxers lift and are huge, but then there are skinny dudes and fat dudes who kick ass. It's really hard to say if it helps.

    Boxers don't lift
    Tyson didn't lift before jail. He started lifting in jail because there was no boxing gym in there

      Bodybuilding is going to make you less competitive; you want to be as strong as possible at a light of a weight as you can manage.

      Lennox Lewis lifted.

    i remember cus damato (mike tyson legendary trainer) said in an interview that everything past calisthenics make a boxer rather slower.

    prime tyson used beside calistentics 2 32kg kettlebells for mass shrugs.

    If you try to do both it is very taxing on the body. A lot of people talk about monk mode. This is the real monk mode. If you really commit, almost all of your free time is spent at the gyms, making meals, and sleeping. You won't have that much time for anything else. I did it for 3 weeks before I called it quits because I couldn't sleep and therefore couldn't recover.

    I used to train boxing and lifting, I could balance them both but my friend couldn’t he would be too physically exhausted. I however was eating a perfect diet and slept good every night while he had stress from work/worse diet.

    Personally if your goal is to be amazing at one you should drop the other, but if you enjoy both you should continue with both and they can go good together if you want more general fitness.

    If you aren't competing it's fine. There's not much likelihood the average person is gunna put themselves outta commission with a heavy/speed bag. If you lift and eat for strength you will be working against your boxing success unless you have autistically powerful fight IQ

    Depends on your goals. Fitness? Sure. Getting to know how to fight and be more intimidating at the same time? Sure. To compete or be at least somewhat competitive at full sparrings? Not really. You probably have no idea what insane cardio it takes to make it through ONE 2/3 minute intensive round. Let alone three rounds. You must basically become a semi-professional runner to get there. So your question in the last case really can be rephrased as: does running, bodybuilding, boxing at competitive level go hand in hand? You probably can answer that yourself. The way to go is to merge cardio and lifting into one thing and doing HIIT and other circuits. Coaches are really crucial in that.
