How close should you conditioning drills mimick rounds?

If you are fighting 2 min rounds should you train yourself on the bag etc for 2 minute rounds as this is what youare fighting?

Or should you train for 3 minute rounds so when you fight the 2 minutes feels easier?

Would training using 3 minute rounds naturally see a drop in work intensity that would count against you when you compete?

    I'd always opt for training harder and longer than the fight time dictates. "Train hard, fight easy", as the saying goes. Or "more sweat, less blood", as some other saying goes.

    When I used to box I'd train for 3 minutes at a time as my fights were usually 3 minute rounds. After a while I decided to go up to 5 mins at a time, and I found this to be greatly beneficial in terms of my stamina and mental strength. Most trainers I came across didn't approve, but it worked for me.

    Personally, I would step up the intensity rather than the duration.

    Being able to fight harder and faster over 2 mins per round is your aim, rather than being able to fight longer than 2 mins.
