what are your favorite quotes from boxers?

Here are some of mine in no particular order:

Mayweather response to Shane Mosley saying that he wanted to be like Shane when he was younger ‘ Shane Mosley I barely know who the f*ck you are! f*ck you mean I wanna be like you? How i wanna be like you? C’mon man i’m the face of boxing. I’m the cash cow. I hold the record for most PPV ME! for the highest gate ME!’

Mayweather response to Shane Mosley saying he only fights for the money ‘ YOU F*CKING DUMMY! I’m a prizefighter that’s what i’m suppose to do, fight for a prize, DUH!’

Tyson interview about Lewis after a 1st round stoppage ‘ I was gonna rip his heart out. I’m the best ever. I’m the most brutal and vicious, the most ruthless champion there has ever been. No one can stop me. Lennox is a conqueror? No! He’s no Alexander! I’m Alexander! I’m the best ever. I’m Sonny Liston. I’m Jack Dempsey. There’s never been anyone like me. I’m from their cloth. There is no one who can match me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I’m just ferocious. I want his heart! I want to eat his children! Praise be to Allah!’

Tyson during an interview with a women ‘ I don’t usually do interviews with women unless i fornicate with them…………. so you should stop talking now…… unless you wanna you know?’

Ali/Clay on being a 7-1 underdog vs Liston ‘ If you wanna lose your money then be a fool and bet on Sonny!’
‘ I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.’

Got any other good quotes?
I forgot to mention…. Jake Lamotta on his toughest fights ‘ My 3 toughest fights were sugar ray robinson, sugar ray robinson and sugar ray robinson. I fought sugar so many times it’s a suprise that i’m not diabetic’

Nobody had better quotes than Randy Tex Cobb. Here are a few.

"All I do is hit somebody in the mouth. It’s a whole lot easier than working for a living. Don’t make anything noble out of what I do." When asked how he viewed his boxing career.

"Sure, I’d love to fight him. But I have my price, twenty-five cents and a loose woman." On if he’d like to fight Gerry Cooney.

"You run for 45 minutes, you train for an hour and a half, and the rest of the time you just hang out and talk tough." On the typical day of a pro boxer.

"This fight will be the nastiest thing you’ll ever see. I’ve been sober for six weeks, and that makes me vicious." On his upcoming fight with Michael Dokes.

"If you screw up in tennis, it’s 15-love. If you screw up in boxing, it’s your ass, darling!" On how tough fighting can be.

"I miss having bottle fatigue. Abstinence is for monks – not for me. This kind of life is really over-rated. I mean, I’m actually getting to sleep before I have breakfast." On keeping sober during training.

"I’ve always thought the greatest crime a man can do is take himself too seriously. I mean, something like fighting is pretty ridiculous to take seriously. What I do is hit people, I’m not promoting anything that is real or valuable." On how he looks at fighting for a living.

On the Larry Holmes fight, Cobb’s biggest ever bout.

"No, Larry don’t hit as hard as Earnie Shavers. No-one hits as hard as Shavers. If there was a fighter that hit harder than Shavers, I shoot him!"

"I wasn’t talking to Holmes in there. Every time I felt like saying something to him I found it hard because he kept putting his left hand in my mouth."

"Hey, you’re a white guy, do something about this!" To the ref in the Holmes fight.

"I’d have been more active in there, if only I’d been a little more sober."

"Let’s party!" To Holmes as they touched gloves for round 15.

"I don’t think his hands could take the abuse." On a possible rematch with Holmes.

And finally, one of Cobb’s absolute gems.

"I can do my sport no greater service." On being informed that commentator Howard Cosell had hung up his mike after being so appalled at the one-sidedness of the Holmes-Cobb fight.
