I know Roy Jones jr lifts weights, i myself lift weights although i am not a pro. Lot of old school trainers think weights are bad, but times have changed, the proper weight lifting workouts can only benefit, but b carefull as it could hurt u if not doing the correct exercises.

[[[so what sort of weight routines would pros do and how often?]]]
=========================

There is no set routine. Weights have been used since the earliest days of boxing, but not all trainers believe in them or use them, even to this day. Ali never lifted a weight in his life, but in his 2nd career Big George was a big lifter. Hatton lifts, but I don't think Floyd does, and so it goes.

The earliest mention of weights I've seen is a letter written by James Corbett to a NY strongman who gave him a set of dumbells to use. Corbett writes, "They done me good."

Over 50% of Holyfield's training was weight training.
