ive never used a weighted vest, but i did put 5lb ankle weights around my wrists to train for basketball. doing ballhandling and dribbling drills with them were great for my handspeed, wrist strength, and reflexes in general. i never used them training for boxing, but i think they were partly responsible for the speed of my jabs and straights.

i think the weighted vest would help your leg power depending on the exercises you do; maybe certain plyometrics with the vest on could improve leg speed, but i think they are more effective with other forms of resistance.

ive used ankle weights for plyo, but a vest could obviously give more weight. the only thing id wonder about for it is if it safer on your knees to have the weight above or below them.

havent tried it but i guess it will encrease your endurande as well as strengthen back, abs and leg muscles.

Spetznas have used it for years.
The live with it,train with it and sleeps with it.
and whan they finaly tkes it off they say its like flying.

dont know if its good for boxers though.
