All the weight lifting in the world won't build any muscle unless the weight lifter is eating extra calories to fuel that muscle growth (unless steroids are involved).
A boxer could lift tons of weight and not gain any muscle mass if they were eating a substandard amount of calories.
I'm sure Rahman and Bruno (and also Briggs) were eating to fuel their muscle growth.
