Even after completely recovering from Boxer's Fracture, Is it risky to do knuckle push ups, punching sandbags etc. while having metal plate placed on your 5th metacarpal bone ?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Not really

if you healed completely,they will be no restrictions on your boxing,or any activity associated with it.
the metal plate is permanent,unless it start causing any problem,but it will not be a reason to restricted your activities.
