    Chad Dawson immediately after first fight with Hopkins when Hopkins faked an injury in the second round to avoid a knockdown:

    "He say he a gangsta, he aint no gangsta! A gangsta would have got up and fought me like a man!"

    I been watching the sport 33 years now and that is hands down the best quote i ever hear....and I'm a huge B Hop fan

    The **** Haugen said about Chavez, like that...may have seemed witty to Greg, but it didn't profit him at all.

    Seamus: "BUT HE WAS SMALL AND HE CUT EASY AHAHHAHAHAHAHHAH ROCKISTAS"

    Liked by GOAT Primo Carnera and Pat M

    In all seriousness if that event occured it would be between Marciano, Sullivan, Dempsey and Tyson imo. All dirty street fighters with huge punching ability and wicked pain tolerance. I'm leaning towards Marciano since he's basically Sullivan but with more athleticism

    Surely somebody like Foreman should be considered for this

    He's not much of a street fighter nor a dirty fighter. And his pain tolerance hasn't been tested like it was with Sullivan and Marciano. Sullivan would gouge Foreman's eyes out

    Max Baer, when he was having what turned out to be his fatal heart attack, was in a hotel. He called Reception when he felt unwell and described his symptoms.

    The concierge asked if he wanted to see the house doctor to which Max replied 'No, I want to see the people doctor.' He died hours later.

    Michael Spinks, when asked if he would fight winner take all vs Tyson.... 'No way. If I lose, I get beat up and I'm sad.'
