Default Any tips on getting into amatuer boxing?

I got most of the basics down. I have a few family members that used to be in the amateurs, and I've been in mma for a year. I'm 5'10 almost 5'11, and about 120-125 pounds. With about 26'-27 inch arm reach. Do you guys have any tips for me when I start training in September? And if I had to cut down in weight what weight would I have to cut down to?

Mma people typically can't box for crap. Find a real boxing gym with a real boxing trainer if you're serious about getting into boxing.

Haha I know what you guys must be thinking. The trainer there has worked with a lot of experienced, and well trained pure boxers. He has had 6 years of boxing experience himself. He is a MMA trainer, but he knows tons about boxing. I've learned how to box in pure boxing fashion, and I have also learned how to use boxing in mma. That's what I worked on the most there was boxing. I'm still pretty noob, but that didn't stop me from using the philly shell :P.

I eat well. I work out well enough. Even when I did my basic training in the army last year I felt great, and when I weighed myself about 5 weeks into the course I was at 116 pounds. I think I would have an advantage having decent height, and reach in the smaller divisions.

hrmm...while i do agree if you want to box, it is better to find a gym with a dedicated boxing program, but saying boxing training is more intense than mma training is just idiotic. training for 3 different aspects of a sport plus strength & conditioning is very difficult. now i'm not saying mma fighters train harder or vice versa, just think a bit.
