every single person who has made a comment about boxers has got it completely wrong
boxers do not have 'lots of muscle'. most boxers have never lifted a weight in their lives.
and boxers don't skip to lose weight -it's for training interval endurance, footwork, co-ordination. they run 5-8 miles in the morning before breakfast to lose weight for fights.
Depends alot on what weight category they are in.
Boxers do quite a fair bit of weight training.
Yeah, skipping is mainly for foot work etc.
They run for fitness. And to lose weight for when they have a weigh in.
