Boxing is a highly demanding sport for all of the major muscle groups and what you do after you put them to the test is almost as important as how you test them. Protein is crucial for muscle recovery. It promotes growth and healing after the muscle has been broken down through intense, heavy exercise. Good whole food sources are beef, bison, chicken, turkey, and eggs. All high protein and lean.
