    I always like this one when Hagler was talking about Hearns

    "He was going to make two million dollars and then he turned down two million dollars,"He started complaining about his little baby pinkie. Do you know how many people would give a million dollars for that little baby pinkie? They'd cut that thing off."

    Max Baer, when he was having what proved to be a fatal heart attack, called reception at the hotel where he was staying.

    The receptionist asked "Do you want to see the house doctor."

    "No. I want to see the people doctor." Max replied. He was dead within the hour.

    “Yumpin’ Yimminy!”

    My MAN, Ingemar’s first utterings upon being revived from Floyd’s “fluke” left hook KO.

    Well, at least that’s what I reckon the thinking man’s GOAT might’ve said.

    Then there was this gem (for real, with a bit of free licence on phonetics)

    “Enema…. enema……enema, I love youse ALL!”

    Tyson on Tyrell Biggs
    " Every time I hit him to the body he was sounding like a woman oh oh". Or something to that effect.

    "The judges, referees and promoters can kiss me where the sun don’t shine - and because we’re on HBO, that’s my big black behind"....

    you're far closer to Ali in fighting ability than rhyming ability, Larry.
