I would almost never recomend that someone keep TKD as thier style if they plan to compete BUT the biggest problem with TKD-stylists is they arn't used to the contact of punches to the face. If you are in Boxing that wont be a problem for you, so considering you don't have a KickBoxing or MThai place handy and you are getting used to contact from Boxing I'd say TKD can be a somewhat useful addition toyour training and you could keep it.
However, if it's really pricy or is cutting into your learning of the other styles that are much more common in the Cage then I'd say to drop it and just focus on your Hands as your Striking Offence for now.
