Default Put more emphasis on skills

All these conditioning routines are useless unless you learn how to box first.

Running longer and training harder wont improve your stamina if you are scared and tense the entire time, expend too much energy by not being relaxed. This is how a smoker went 15 rounds back in the day, relaxation, experience and know how to throw proper efficient punches. If you build your damn muscles up in a strength and conditioning routine, you are gonna train the wrong motor skills and fire up all the muscles you dont want.

If you want to punch harder, understand leverage first, AND timing. Try moving a fridge at arms length vs your arm up close to your body. That's leverage. And that's why strength and conditioning is nearly pointless half the time. Joe Louis punches hard because he's got leverage, look how close his elbows are to his body, he turns his knuckles down, hes got strong legs and plants his feet - he follows through. Has nothing to do with how much weight he can lift. There is a reason sucker punches hurt more than punches you see coming, you can't brace for them. Getting hit in the gut while flexing vs not flexing is like night and day. So learn to land when the opponent isnt prepared to take it, otherwise your power is totally useless.

If you want to be faster, well make sure you got your tells and rythm under control first, by watching yourself in the mirror and reviewing your tapes. You might think you are fast by exploding - but you are actually giving yourself away - and wasting energy at the same time. a Smooth casual jab has less tell on it than some bunny rabbit explosion thats coming at 90 mph but its got neon lights and a loud speaker going off. If you are losing something by gaining something, its pointless.

lastly, study old tapes. Newer fighters don't have the same skills, nor the experience in the pro ranks. not only do they not fight enough, but they dont spar enough either. If you are not psychologically ready to fight, then you wont win.

technique will always be the best attribute in boxing

which is why the steroid thing is overblown, steroids will not teach you how to fight... they will give you an unfair advantage, IF you know how to fight
