Most of those exercises help you mainly to get muscle endurance.

So if you're going to lift weights, you actually need to work on the opposite, which is speed strength and absolute functional strength, not more endurance. About losing flexibility, there I agree that doing lifting weights without a proper training routine would make a boxer lose flexibility, but a good workout specifically made for a boxer could make you gain more power and speed by lifting weights, without having to sacrifice flexibility.
Yes but you are missing one MAJOR factor here. In boxing, you need to be at the minimum weight you can without losing strength and endurance. In other words, still be strong and at a healthy weight.

It's like when people see a pic of a fighter during his "off" time they immediately call him fat..lol. What they don't realize is they are so used to seeing him drained that they think that's the way he always looks.

Boxing is almost like body building in that regard, you need to be as lean as possible during competition time.

If you look at boxers bodies, there are very few that have that very muscular look. If they are muscular like Klitchko or Tyson for example, they have that build genetically and carry the weight much better because there is no limit in the HW class.

Where as a fighter than needs to make weight in lower classes, can't and shouldn't come in "jacked" because he will lose power believe it or not because he will be in there with guys who walk around 20 lbs heavier than their fight weight.

Too much bulk is not good for a boxer anyway you look at it. That's why most trainers still don't like too much weight training at all and the one's who do use it, use it sparingly like you said to build core strength and make sure not to "bulk" their fighter up.
