I was wondering if it would be better to do 5 rounds on the heavy bag or just do 15 minutes straight. What do you guys think?

Boxing is intervall, mainly rounds.

You need combination do 15min long ones one once in while.

I do both,

Rounds are good for fitness because i push myself hard for 3mins, take a 30 second break and do it again.

I normally do work on technique if i'm not doing rounds, i just go at a decent pace for 30mins on the bags and work on anything that needs a tune up(e.g. head movement, jab etc)

intervals are the way to go ,working with intensity, broken up with periods of rest seem to me to be the most productive way to train, and its not just the physical benefits, mentally, i find it far easier to work in short sharp burst rather then the boring same pace plodding workouts

Mixing it up is good; its also good to do workouts with lots of 1min rounds to work on speed and explosion.

Rounds, I do six to eight rounds, 2 to 3 times a week on the heavy bag, and It's worked great for my stamina.

rounds do about 5 rounds and every 3 minutes rest for a minute that builds better stamina

In any sport. Whenever you train, you train like you were gonna perform for your sport. If you stay on the bag too long, you become slow, because you get tired. Then you teach your body to fight slow. Train with rounds.

i dont box
but hitten the bags on interval of rounds doesnt make sense to me
becuz its way to easy
i mean compared to an actual round of fighten
i would imagine when hitten the bag
u should be doin in interval greater then 3min
but thats just me

2mins is enough actually 30secs is enough if you do it hard enough.

Like you said, you don't box. It doesn't matter how advanced you are. Working on the bag and giving it your all, will always be giving it your all. And that should leave you spent in the end
