You should halt boxing for a couple weeks until that symptoms resolve completely.

If you have tenderness at the bottom tip of your deltoid muscle,if there's pain there if you stand with the arm hanging & then lift it away from your torso or pain on reaching behind your back, I'd suspect inflammation of the biceps tendon. Rest & a course of anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen or naproxen are advisable. Or it could be simply an overuse syndrome requiring rest from boxing.
