develope your style first, if you already have then what punch do you like throwing the most?

i have always liked for a fighter to use the jab with both offense and defense so i would work on this

and about weight just keep working out and running of course

To early to develop a style when you are learning basics. After you get in shape and learn the basics you will get your chance to try many styles and see what firs you best.

Big mistake some guys make is they don't try to learn basics and try to jump into build a "style" or focus on a strength.
