If you are 35+ and you want to learn then continuing your strength training should be important. In the event you use boxing out side of the gym in a fight you are going to want to cause the most damage in the least amount of time to discourage your opponent from continuing on. To make someone you are fighting with decide it isn't worth fighting anymore gets everyone back to what they were doing before the aggression started. I had a group of attackers who were also fighters. I avoided fighting them until i did. When i did they learned very fast how short a fight with me could be in the event i decided to humor them and engage in a fight. Fighting is a young mans game. If you are a teenager or under 23 then you have potential to earn pay in the future. If you are getting started after 25 i wouldn't set sights much higher then local shows among local gyms where the coaches kinda know each other and keep in touch at events. By age 25 great fighters will have had a as many as 300 amateur bouts and be 5-15 fights into their pro career.
If you aren't striving for greatness or becoming a legend then go to practice, listen to your coaches, listen to your body. Conditioning often stunts muscle gain and can erode it. Adding muscle often stunts conditioning gain and often erodes it.
Whats your name. How old are you? What kind of goals do you have?
