Are boxers fast runners ?

The measure of success in most sports is the ability to run fast.

Does boxing differ ?

Well a lot of Champions did not even put great faith in roadwork running, Jimmy Wilde the flyweight legend didn't, it is said the Klitchkos do not favour running so boxing success is not about running fast, unless that is moving fast within the squared circle.

Despite Muhammad Ali not always entering the ring in perfect trim for some of his less 'challenging' fights, i still like his quote which is not a bad motto for any budding boxer to follow,

"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."

Not really its not about being a boxer for running fast it depends on your stamina and strength that is something which can help you in running especially lower body part that should be strengthen,Cycling,swimming are the best options for gaining it.

id say most active boxers at a good standerd would be reasonably good runners i run 4 mile every day never really run longer then that unless its a race which i do rarely, done a half marathon on sunday in 1.32.58 which put me quite high in the results so just shows most of us can run aswell just from our weekly training for boxing
