not sure what to do

i have a journal going and have been doing boxing training a couple of days a week for a few months
my original plan was to do it as my cardio to aid with the cut and then come september (after the holiday) stop the training until the following years cut

im now thinking of possibly carrying on the boxing training, fighting but bulking up to a ripped 15 odd stone (ie, mike tysons build)

im currently at 14 stone 4 but to get ripped id drop to about 13 i think, so it would be a lean bulk back up

is it possible? or how hard would it be?

    A boxer who is fighting, must find a comfortable weight, where it does not fluctute too much above or below, and maintain it.
    If you try bulking up too 15 stone, you then have too maintain a certain amount of volume too keep the muscle intact.
    Boxing is a sport of endurance, of conditioning.
    If your body is not naturally sitting at 15 stone, adding all that weight in muscle and expecting to be functional in the ring sounds a bit unreal.
    remember boxing is a skill, its an art, its not something where you go into the ring too look good.
    Look at james toney, he doesnt look that great at 230 pounds, but hes as functional as it gets.

    Boxings a great sport, but its not one for the bodybuilder.

    yer its possible. dunno how hard it would be, i dropped weight from training but i train 4-5 day a week in mma and thai and only do weights once a week

    i dont know. he could be a genetic freak and grow really quick or he could be like me and grow slow as hell! depends on how much effort he puts in for it etc..

    unfortunately im no genetic freak

    started off at 10.5 stone, got up to just under 16 with a large amount of fate
    now at 14stone4 with fat

    the plan is to get to a level where the fats low (possibly ripped but not sure i have enough time) then do a lean bulk and keep my fat levels at an acceptable level

    it is possible, if your wiling too spend the next two years trying too achieve this goal, then just want to do some fighting as a hobby, nothing serious with the boxing etc.
    But i cant see it doing any benefit too your boxing in the long run.
