I heard that Naseem Hamed used weights to exercise his legs, he turned out with great movement and power.

If you want more speed and power you better train the legs for strength. Front Squats, snatch grip deadlifts, zercher squats, bulgarian split squats, strengthening the posterior chain with reverse hypers, rope pull throughs are a must to.

If you want to speed and power, you first must be strong! this is so misunderstood. Lifting heavy weights does not make you slow when you train for speed/power with them.. ex. using plyometrics. As long as you are performing plyometrics right, it's impossible to be slow and you'll be night and day faster than the fighter not doing them.

boxers dont really need to lift, and why would you do it for your legs? if you want good leg strength just do ordinary deep squats and plenty of running (not just jogging, sprinting also)

It makes a big difference. But keep it specific to boxing, like the functional exercises described above (plyometrics, squats, lunges). Try it with higher reps and lighter weight to make it more explosive. But you can't neglect an endurance base.
