Here are some of my favorite Boxing Quotes. Hope you like them. If you have any good ones send them to me and I will post them.
Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston in 1964 after knocking out Floyd Patterson in the first round for the second consecutive time was asked by a reporter “Do you think Floyd should fight again” the menacing and usually non verbal Liston responded “How do you tell a bird that he can’t fly?”
1970’s and 80’s perennial heavyweight journeyman and sometimes contender Scott Ledoux was asked at ringside when he realized he was becoming a better fighter. He said ” When I woke up in the morning and my hands were hurting instead of my head.”
Floyd Mayweather Jr. said ” You can play baseball, you can play basketball, you play football – you can’t play Boxing.”
And four more by the one and only Muhammad Ali:
“If you even dream of beating me you better wake up and apologize.”
“I am so mean I make medicine sick.”
“You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe off the sweat and keep going,”
“Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a Champion.”
