When I was younger (18-19) I picked up boxing & it was the most fun I ever had in my life. Although I did it on & off due to my lack of commitment, I always found myself back in the gym sparring & training. I had one fight, & it still ranks as one of the top experiences in my life.
I'm 22 now, & been in the military for a little over 2 years now. Throughout those 2 years I've hit the boxing gym when it was possible (family & my schedule basically revolves around the military) mostly just the heavy bag & speed bag.
What I'm trying to say is that I've decided that I want to get back into boxing. It saved me from going down a different road & I love it, the training, the fighting, all of it. I leave for a military school in about 4 months, & before I leave I want to get one fight in.
My question is what should I focus on in training? I used my reach & conditioning to my advantage by keeping pressure on my opponet & maintaining a consistent punch output. My jab, straight, & right hook were my weapons. I turned to the forums to see if you veterans have suggestions or tips on what to focus on within the time frame I have.
