Default Great Weightlifting Boxers

Can you guys name me any great boxers who were also into heavy weightlifting?

Primarily from lightweight to light heavyweight.

Thanks in advance.

Not necessarily a great boxer but I know that George Chuvalo lifted weights and still does at 70 years of age.

Frank Bruno! He looked like a weightlifter all his career. I've read an article on him where somebody said he came to the gym and would just lift weights all day long. The man was a beast! Oddly enough it didn't help him against Tyson...
