Sounds like you need to step your cardio up!
How many times a week do you do cardio, and for how long?

at 5'9 your personal trainer is probably right about your body fat, which ,means you're pretty fat (no offense)
you should eat more to build a little muscle after your training but you should really take your training seriously and work your ass off, you will get leaner. If you are fatter than the other people in your weight class it will not be fun, they will dominate you

Hey man, I really am not fat. I have a pretty much straight stomach. I cant last 4x3 minute rounds in the ring vs amateur boxers(sparring).I used to be VERY FAT but have lost A LOT of weight in the past 2 years. I also work my D*ck off when im at the gym. I get a new workout every 6 weeks.

I don't see any green vegetables or any type of vegetable in your diet from what you listed.
I'd replace some of the stuff like pasta with Green Vegetables if your goal is to drop bodyfat and lean out.
I'm 180lbs and I my workouts (even though I don't box) are very intense and strenuous and even only stick to 1/2 cup of oatmeal.
So yeah I'd cut back on carbs a little bit, eat more green vegetables and fruits, and eat more lean protein. I don't know what your water intake is, but make sure you are drinking a LOT. I do around 1.5-2 gallons per day myself. I think at least a gallon would be good for you. Especially if you are boxing you are losing a lot of fluids.
Breakfast: Eggs, 1/2 Cup Oatmeal or a piece of fruit (Apple)
Snack: Can of Tuna w/ Steamed Broccoli and a handful of almonds
Lunch: 6oz Chicken Brest w/ Brown Rice
Pre Training - Apple or nothing
After Training- 20oz Gatorade and maybe a scoop of protein
Dinner: Fish (Salmon) and a Salad
Before Bed- Cup of Cottage Cheese
just an example
