if you want to fight you are gonna have to take it seriously. doing what you are doing you will end up knocked out cold. ive seen so many muscle bound bums in novice tournaments and they all end up that way.

trying to be a bodybuilder and a fighter is the worst possible idea. just buy a heavybag and go a few rounds when you feel like it. real boxing will take real dedication.
I could not agree more.

I just want to have a body, for example (and sorry if this is a bit stereotypical) like Tysons.

My question is how do I build muscle whilst boxing, obviously I will include heavy weight training into the program. But because of all of the cardio that I will be doing how do I bulk up, do I eat like a horse?

Another question is if I do chest and triceps today and want to box tomorrow, I will not be resting the muscles like is advised, or is this ok? Also should I do the weight before or after the cardio?

This is my first post so please be easy on me and answers will be much appreciated, also if you have a weekly workout program I could follow would be very beneficial
Are you really just asking how to get big then? The answer to that lies in diet, sufficient protein intake, a calorie surplus, and progressive overload in your lifting.

Your starting point is working out what your calorie intake needs to be to just maintain your current weight. There are loads of calorie calculators online (just google it) and using a few of them you'll get a sense of what the numbers are.

Lifting for aesthetics is different to lifting for other reasons, and even lifting for strength needs to be shaped by what function that strength is supposed to serve.

The main thing is to be totally honest about what your goals are. If you're lifting for your image then that's totally fine, you just need to be clear about it from the off, because you need to tailor you work for the type of improvements you want. Otherwise you'll end up demoralising yourself.
