I would think weight training might be able to take a heavyweight to the "next level," but not a smaller fighter focused more on speed and agility.
weight training can benefit speed and agility try doing 70% of your one rep max for 4-5 reps in a faster pace.

justine fortune has manny pacquaio doing this according to an interview on www.***********.com

BTW what are your thoughts on complex training?
