You are going to get mix reactions about weights and boxing, so it really depends on what types of lifts you do...For boxing you want to do nothing but compound lifts and nothing isolated.

Power comes from the legs and your stance and so forth, being big and bulky is not an option for boxing...

How many boxers do you see walking around looking like arnold in his early days or jay cutler??? NONE

Up,up, up and away that cardio.

Boxing is a high intensity level sport, you are going to need strength speed stamina endurance the whole shabang you just cant settle for one...You have to be the "Complete Package"

A Joe Boxer routine would look something like this

Roadwork

Compound lifts (if you choose to, I dont like them)

Jump Rope
Bag work
shadowbox

Just your regular routine nothing special...

Boxing is a interval sport and you want to train at rounds majority of the time...Sometimes you could be just plotting around doing nothing and in the blink of an eye you are banging in an all out war....

Cardio is a must and you wont lose power by not lifting.

I'm still training in hopes of getting my first fight soon, so I don't have any solid, in-the-trenches advice as far as amateur boxing competition, but I think you should keep the intensity high in regards to your strength training and cardio.

I use to be a hardcore weightlifter, but I really don't think weights are critical for a boxer's success.I like to incorporate some dumbell and kettlebell lifts once or twice per week that focus on explosiveness; swings, snatches, clean and presses, etc.Lots of reps with short rest intervals.The ballistic nature of these exercises helps to build explosiveness in the hips which I find important and the high-reps are good for training the anaerobic system.

As for cardio, I think activities like burpee intervals, hill spints, and interval running are some of the most effective things you can do as far as conditioning.

Incorporate roadwork into these few exercises and you got yourself a decent workout

Calisthenics are my personal choice though.

You may also want to look into yoga/pilates as it helps with flexibility and movement as well.

When I was on vacation, I chopped wood for the fire and man is that a workout. I wish I could do it at home...It is crazy.
