which is more important?Upper or Lower Body?

i feel that lower body is the most important in boxing and that u must train 70% lower body and 30% upper body..Correct me if i am wrong.

Read this good article
http://www.rosstraining.com/articles/strengthtraining.html

Train the body as a unit, not a collection of small pieces
Focus most of your time around compound movements
Develop a strong core
Incorporate variety into your strength program
Do not limit yourself to one modality
Target multiple strength qualities
Steer clear of failure when training for pure strength
Never sacrifice skill and conditioning for strength work
Focus on quality over quantity
Keep strength workouts brief, 2 to 3 days per week

both are important. i would say lower body b/c it helps your upper body grow as well doing squats/deadlifts and so on.

tbh id rather be dead on my feet than not be able to cover up. well then again im not doing more than 3 rounds. Id rather be able to throw more punches consecutivley. But yes, everything is important.
