I think Barbados Joe Walcott is credited with coining that one.

Nope... He came out with that after beating Terry Downes in England..
Harry Carpenter was doing the post fight interviews.. He'd jokingly said that Willie was known as a lucky fighter to which he retorted the aforementioned..
When interviewing Downes (KO'd by 11) he mentioned that Pastrano wasn't a very hard puncher, to which Downes responded, "Well if you think that Harry, why don't you get in the ring with him."
My guess is that Player was a secret boxing fan & copied Pastrano.. Besides you don't exactly train to play golf...lol.. More like practice really..

: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!

damn son.......

Joe Bugner had just gone 15 rounds with Ali & lost a UD for the world title.. After the fight, he decided to invite the press to his hotel where he was enjoying a few vodka martinis & several lengths of the pool.. Meanwhile, Ali was spending the night in hospital being rehydrated on a drip..

Hugh McIlvenny (journalist): Well Joe.. You obviously never tried particularly hard, did you?

Joe Bugner: What do I have to do in order to please you guys? Bring on Jesus Christ??

Hugh McIlvenny: Oh come on Joe... You're only saying that cos you know he's got bad hands!
