Default Weight training- pointless?

Should weight lifting be avoided completely and only body weight or a mixture of both? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I see weight training as beneficial to boxing as it develops your Body. Look at it this way. Would push ups and dips be enough for chest and triceps or should you throw in some bench press overhead press and tricep extensions? Would pull ups and chin ups be enough for back and biceps or should you throw in some type of rows and curls?I’m competing as of right now

If it works for a boxer, do it. If it doesn't work, eliminate it. YMMV.

I'm wondering something along the lines of this question too...

I only do weight training/lifting once a week, but I noticed a lot of others on here do it multiple times a week.
Should I be upping my weight training?

Figured I'm training my body how it's built and I'm not exactly a bodybuilder so... is it necessary for me to do weights more often? I personally don't intend to eliminate it from my workout routine though.

I'm actually reading Joe Frazier's book right now and he is a strong proponent of NOT lifting weights. He swears by simple bodyweight and medicine ball work. But he was also a pretty simple guy.

I personally think that if strength training gets in the way of your skill work, then it's not worth it. Whether it be a time thing or soreness or fatigue. However if you can include strength-based fullbody explosive lifting, you should do it.

There's plenty of guides and routines out there for combat athletes that include everything, but it's up to you and how your body reacts. And also how you eat.

Check out Tactical Barbell by K. Black, The Juggernaut Method by Chad Smith, the guys over at Boxing Science UK, or my personal favorite Infinite Intensity over at Ross Training. The latter two focus specifically on boxers.

They're all essentially different variations of the same routine that rely on 4 key tools for athletes:
-Sprinting (HIIT)
-Throwing (full body coordination)
-Jumping (explosive upper/lower body movements)
-Lifting (strength)

Ross does a great job in I.I. and Training for the Ultimate Warrior breaking down a typical week which looks something like:

Day 1
-AM HIIT (intervals, sled pulls etc)
-PM boxing skill training, core, bodyweight circuit

Day 2
-AM Rest or cardio
-PM sparring and sport specific conditioning (blasting the heavy bag)

Day 3
-AM Interval training
-PM Strength training

Boxers should focus on big compound movements for strength. The squat, deadlift, benchpress, overhead press, chinups, rows. For shoulder health some rotator cuff and rear deld work in the hypertrophy zone(8-20reps) may do some good. Some exersices for power cleans and presses and snatches.
Boxers shouldn't emphasize too much time on strenght two or three times week is enough.
