Woah, no there, not energy dirnks or all that. You need complex carbs from things like brown rice, oatmeal, some pasta and all. You are of course going to need 4oz of red meat every day, lots of poultry, it's high in protein, protein shakes aren't necessary but if you can't get all your protein from what you eat, it's a great way to get it. No energy drinks for sure, you can have one once in awhile for fun, but, definitely not before a bout, before training, before sparring, or anything. But as far as muscles go, some people use arm strength, some people use leg strength, some use both, but mostly in boxing, they'll teach you mostly leg strength. The force of hooks and crosses is the stepping and pivoting motion starting from the feet. When you step into a cross you use your back leg and turn your foot, knee, hip, and shoulder. Same with a hook but it goes with both legs. The force of a jab is the force of stepping in, and the spring of your back and shoulder. An uppercut's strength comes from the knees, position you are in, your back, and your shoulder.

as far as i know, the main muscles you use in boxing are triceps, shoulders, back and legs. And you need some strong abs to protect you from body shots.

Horrible diet. Switch it up and you'll see a great improvement in it. DO NOT drink energy drinks for boxing. TOO much sugar. You need water.
