Boxing Necessities

I'm a high school football player who is looking to box a little to help improve my footwork and punch. I won't be sparring or training in a boxing gym, just at home. I was thinking about doing heavy bag and speed bad work. What do I need in terms of necessary equipment?

Foot work is one of those things you don't need equipment for but you won't be able to learn it on your own no matter how good you think you are at watching videos and copying movement you won't do it right and be wasting your time. Punching is all technique and proper body mechanics and this is also hard to learn on your own also don't really need stuff to do it. I would recommend no matter how much your are against bit try out a gym. Making a fist and swinging your arms at a heavy bag is not the same as boxing. I see a lot of hs football come in to our gym and they are all balls to the wall then they find out this is not beating a bag sport and take a while to a climate but they never could have turned out well with out instruction.
