Which box is heavier ?

A cubical box contains 27 congruent large balls; its twin contains 64 congruent smaller balls. All the balls are made of the same material. Both boxes are filled to the top. In each box, each layer has the same number of  balls, and the outside balls of each layer touch the sides. Which box is heavier ? Try with other numbers that are cubes. Draw a general.
