-Early Tyson didn't do weights except shrugs, and he was faster, and much better. When he came out of prison and fought Lewis he did lift and weighed even 20lbs more than in his prime and his speed was effected badly.

-ODH when he was in his prime didn't lift and he was very good(I don't remember the name of his best trainer, too many to recall).
-Pavlik vs Martenez he used a Physical Therapist and looked like shit slower and way worse. But when he was doing old school shit, he looked way better.
-Winky Wright started using all kinds of gadgets and trainers, and started to look terrible, I don't know what he was doing before that though.

-BHOP doesn't lift weights all old school shit as the main course. Then some new shit to augment it.
-Lennox Lewis said he doesn't think weight lifting works if I remember on Boxing after dark.
damn good points. I'd say weight lifting can't be too harmful to your legs though. The added strength and maybe size would make you faster and bouncier
