QUESTION: OK one more thing my trainer is a double world champion and some titles in continent tournaments.He has many students who won many titles.I have very strong punches even if I haven't done any boxing before.My aim is not to be a champion simply learn some combinations and carry them out in my fights properly without making in mind. I will work combinations hard I am sure 3 times in the gym and the rest at home.What do you think what level can I achieve if i work out hard on it in 4-5 months? just your opinion please.

Answer
The answer is somewhat subjective because nobody knows your natural talent and skill level.  Everybody is different and so is their training.  Some people need more and some need less.  Just a simple answer based on the average is yes it is possible, but no one could say for sure.
