Default Quotes

Boxers' good, bad or funny quotes.

The Ring Sept. issue provided me with these ones which I liked:

Bernard Hopkins: "As long as they got ghettos, they'll have boxing."

Harold Johnson: "Of course, I got nervous before a fight. Going into the ring is like walking in a cemetary at night."

Dwight Muhammad Qawi (on the powers that be in boxing): "They make money off us, but their attitude is that we owe them."
