No Shoulder Stamina, What to do?

When I'm boxing sparing, after a few rounds, my shoulders get really tired and I can barely throw a punch.
 
What can I do to give them more lasting ability?
 
I do shoulder presses and other heavy dumbell work in the gym.
 
What else should I be doing?
 
Thanks.

    Avoid heavy shoulder pressing in my experience it makes you very tight across the shoulders and then the lactic acid build up really quick also try and relax more. One thing i have found to help is training with heavier gloves and also hitting the bag holding light dumbells.

    Do you think using wrist weights might help?

    Maybe wearing them around the house?  What about exercises where I just hold my arms out horizontally holding a book or something.

    wrist weights are pointless to be honest. Just train more n keep ya hands up when on the bag etc. The speedball is also very good for shoulder stamina as you have to keep them up high when on it.

    and relaxation, the colonel hit the nail on the head, you just have to keep at it, alot of peoples shoulders fatigue early because of stiffnes and trying to make each and every single shot count, relax and build your shoulder staminer by using the speed ball and light bag work focusing on keeping your hands high

    The more you sweat in training!
    The less you bleed in battle!
