I do all the basic stuff, i run and skip. Ive lost a little bit of weight and i feel ive also lost a bit of muscle endurance with it, so i thought i should work on my overall conditioning. Im just wondering what are the best conditioning drill for boxing.

Mitts with a good trainer, hard runs (3-4 miles is plenty), bag work with good form

A paragraph from Rossboxing. Endurance conditioning for boxing.
The most specific way to train for boxing is a form of interval running that mimics the work/rest ratio involved .A 2 /3 minute round with a one minute rest period.

anything you do if you do it hard, spend 10 rounds jabbing the bag 100 times a round that will get you in shape

Like another poster said you want to mimic the work rest ratio. What they left out is you also want to mimic the movements you will be doing in your sport (boxing :duh: ) while kicking your ass harder than it is likely to get kicked. Ex:

30 secs burpees (with a knuckle pushup and jump)
30 secs shadowboxing or hitting the bag hard (wear 10-16oz gloves)
30 secs burpees
30 secs shadowboxing or hitting the bag hard
30 secs burpees
30 secs shadowboxing or hitting the bag hard
60 secs rest or less

repeat at least 4 rounds (# of rounds in a fight) www.rossboxing.com

Since you mentioned muscular endurance you can add these after a 5-10 minute break.

10 depth push-ups on db's
10 squats with db's (Use something that'll make you fail at about the same time as the push-ups)
repeat rapidly till failure to 10 reps in 1 exercise

5 pull-ups
5 lunges/leg with db's (+weight same as squats)
repeat rapidly till failure

Ive added 10 pushups & 5 pull-ups to my max doing this 2x a week for 1.5 months
