Anything that strengthens your body is good since you use everything when you box. A strong back will help with hooks, uppercuts and with retracting your punches.

I live on push ups and pull ups. Body weight exercises for a strong core are essential. While doing my pull up workouts, I also do some pull ups that incorporate abs and core. I'll hang from the bar, and with straight legs I will raise them all the way up to the bar, lower them, then with knees up, twist to the left once, then to the right. That is one rep. I usually do about 5 reps, maybe 4 sets or so, in between each regular pull up set.

These exercises also indirectly strengthen your biceps/triceps, which leads to a faster punch.

Yes chin ups will help build your biceps and back, overtime you will see yourself retracting your punches with less effort and your hooks and uppercuts will be stronger. With the pull ups try to do them with your hands as wide as you can to help build those lats.

I'm not talking about a bigger bicep, just a better functioning one. Pretty much the same thing can be said for every muscle in the body regarding punching. I'd say core work is essential, which pullups and push ups, if done correctly, can help.

I agree. Drinking all day is how MY dad got strong. Just ask my mom, my daddy was one hell of a boxer with an insane right hook.
