If you're new then it's better to learn the basics before you start strength training. Once you got further into training It's definitely beneficial to train your legs. Squarts, leg lifts, ect.

leg training is very important for a boxer. Punching power comes from the ground up, and your legs give you more power than any other muscle in the body. Hard punchers like Marciano, Tyson, Foreman, and Shavers all had huge leg muscles. They were swarmers, but boxers like Ali, Holmes had decent size legs also. Tysons were 28", and i've read that he could squat 900
