I don't think the old school guys used weights like they would today.Speed endurance and agility were the priority.The old medicine ball and free weights.
you would have to ask Atlas or Rooney what Mike could bench.As far as the rest it would be vey difficult to find out.

if you want to be or are a boxer get a good trainer.
weights help but if you are not carefull they will hurt you more then they will help you.

my cuz and i spar together, he looks great and really hurts me in the first 2 rounds but after that he is done.
also the stronger he gets from lifting weights the slower he gets.
i can't match his power but 95% i can see his punches coming.
i only bench 125Lbs but i do reps of 25 in less then 3 minutes.
then i do it 4 more times.
BTW my cuz works out with 275Lbs.

Well, you could use his slowness and power to your advantage. Heres how hopefuly he doesn't come on this site, or read this thread because he will then beat you. Fake him out by pretending your hurt, so he will then get sloppy and start swinging wildly then you can nail him, a lot.

2.5 years for a boxer is a long time.

Sorry to get back on topic especially one that has to do with weight training, which I feel is unesassary for boxers, however I heard a rumor (and I beleive that it was just a rumor and dont know why Im spreading it) that Rahman was able to bench an unbeleiveable 500lbs I didnt hear anything about sets or reps but that blew my mind. Why would someone who was serious about boxing waste there time with benching? What does benching a large amount of weight help you become a better boxer?
