    Hanging the bag up may help increase your tricep strength....those things are heavy

    It should help you get your punching technique better so punches might get harder...but other than that it will probably only help muscular endurace. Also, I think a round of boxing has gotta be one of best calorie burners, so if you keep it going for a while, or shadow box, it should be great cardio.
