Quotable quotes.

I used to hear comments that footballers have their brains in their feet and boxers have theirs in the gloves,  how bloody aloof and snobbish can one be.
Let me share with you some beautiful quotes made by who else boxers.
1.  Darling , I forgot to duck.   Jack demsey after losing to Gene Tunney. In fact President Reagen adopt that quote after being shot.
2.  I want no pie in the sky when I die, I want sometihing here on the ground when I am still living. Muhd Ali.  
3. Float like a butterfly,sting like a bee.      Muhd.Ali.
4. I aint got no nothing against the Vietcongs.      Muhd Ali refusing to fight in the Vietnam war.
5. We will ground the peanut and sent it to Georgia,    Muhd.Ali,   peanut was refering to Larry Holmes whose head is shaped like a peanut.     Georgia refers to President Jimmy Carter, a peanut farmer.
6. the judges, the referees and promoters can kiss me where the sun don't shine - and because we're on HBO, that's my big black behind      Larry Holmes after losing a disputed decision to Michael Spinks.

No. 6 is my favorite with some adjustment of course.

  1. Oh another one that I just remember, I cannot exactly recall the exact words but it goes something like this, The late great Rocky Marciano at one of the social gatherings was asked to make a speech and he says something like this
    " I cannot sing,dance, give a speech or compose poems like what some of my colleagues do, but to prove that I am just as sociable, I am willing to fight any man in the house "
    There was loud laughter but not surprisingly no takers.
