Heavy weight boxing: Is mass from body fat just as useful as sarcoplasmic hypertrophy?

    Hey everyone, I hope you're having a good day : )

    I'd be so thankful if someone could give me a clue on this..

    I've read that high-volume hypertrophy training mainly increases glycogen stores ("sarcoplasm"), not muscle fiber mass. Does that mean that kind of hypertrophy is "non functional" and doesn't have much value to a boxer beyond the mass? And does that mean that fat would be just as good for mass as that kind of hypertrophy? I was also thinking of Andy Ruiz, Big Baby Miller, Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury who all have a high body fat percentage.

    Thank you
