Boxing for cardio?

Hi, I was recently given a Boots punchball set, and I was wondering if anyone knew a half hour boxing routine that I could do with my set?
I plan to use it twice a week for cardio and I will use my exercise bike twice a week for cardio training. I also weight train 4 times a week, one bodypart a week.

Thanks!!!!!

    is that a fastball type of thing?
    I would lay into a heavy bag for a good cardio workout...do a HIIT style thing with max effore for 1 min or 30 secs and tehn easy going for next period and then max again...etc etc.

    Just pick combo of punchs like

    Rigfht cross
    Left hook
    Right cross and do 3 mins then just work up to 10 sets of 3's with a min break between you will be fit in no time do this everyday as its not much vary your hand work. Becareful though as if you ever want to box really you should go and learn as doing it yourself will get you alot of bad habbits I am having to iron mine out now.

    can you hook on a fastball? I thought that it'd swing to the side if you do that. It's only designed to work your defencive reflexes and timing isn't it?

    Re: boxing workout -

    I tried this last night:

    Skipping - 3 mins
    Punch bag - 3 mins
    Shadow boxing - 3 mins

    All for an hour and it worked well.

    also: no offense, but if you are buying boxing equipment from boots, and are planning to use it properly, expect to buy new stuff soon. imo, go to/contact your nearest boxing/MA club or shiop and get some proper equip.
