I'm watching Million Dollar Baby and Morgan Freeman's character had a nice quote in there that said "To make a fighter you gotta strip them down to bare wood: you can't just tell 'em to forget everything you know if you gotta make 'em forget even their bones... make 'em so tired they only listen to you, only hear your voice, only do what you say and nothing else... show 'em how to keep their balance and take it away from the other guy... how to generate momentum off their right toe and how to flex your knees when you fire a jab... how to fight backin' up so that the other guy doesn't want to come after you. Then you gotta show 'em all over again. Over and over and over... till they think they're born that way." In fact there are a handful of them in this that I like which gave me the idea to post this.

I want to read some good ones from FH Community, rather it be from movies, real fights, or personal encounters. What's some good fight Quotes you've herd.

"Hi I'm Oscar I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna do that.....You ain't gonna do shit" - Mayweather

"I broke my back"

"Last night I had a dream, When I got to Africa,

I had one hell of a rumble.
I had to beat Tarzanís behind first,
For claiming to be King of the Jungle.
For this fight, Iíve wrestled with alligators,
Iíve tussled with a whale.
I done handcuffed lightning
And throw thunder in jail.
You know Iím bad.
just last week, I murdered a rock,
Injured a stone, Hospitalized a brick.
Iím so mean, I make medicine sick.
Iím so fast, man,
I can run through a hurricane and donít get wet.
When George Foreman meets me,
Heíll pay his debt.
I can drown the drink of water, and kill a dead tree.
Wait till you see Muhammad Ali."

Now that was something else lol

One of Bernard Hopkins fights about a decade ago, he fought and demolished some no named mandatory from france, after the fight, Merchant interviewed him and hassled him about the quality of his opponent, told him he got paid for not doing much of anything. Trying to get that last word in Larry sais back to you Jim, then that 3 second pause you hear Hopkins say something like, "Yeah well Larry you get paid for not doing much of anything everyday" before they cut his mic, was hilarious, wish i could find video on it.

"Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee." The GREAT Ali

"My balls, he hit me in my balls." Judah, it was funny and tragic at the shame time

"Only in America!"Don King

"uhhh...uhhhh.... its up to my promoter." Manny P.

"There is only one Ricky Hatton, walking along singing his song walking in a Hatton wonderland." British fight fans. I loved that song and the energy they bought to Vegas!

"I looked up to Oscar De La Hoya like he was God." Ortiz... we say silly shit sometimes. His god does coke and dresses in drag...

"He said I took his bag... okay I took your shit...now whatcha going to do about it?"? Mayweather. I just liked this quote.

"Down goes FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER!" Costello. That is how you announce a fight!

Remember when they asked Tyson in a post fight about a KO and he said the guy made noises like a woman and he preceded to mimic the said noises. Tyson should do pre fight speeches, he'd be out of debt in no time laugh.gif

“Boxing is the only sport you can get your brain shook, your money took and your name in the undertaker book.” Smoking Joe

"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights." Ali

If people are doing movies this was out of Ali
"
Ali comes out to meet Frazier, but Frazier starts to retreat.
If Joe goes back an inch farther, he'll wind up in a ringside seat.
Ali swings with his left, Ali swings with his right.
Just look at the kid carry the fight.
Frazier keeps backin', but there's not enough room.
It's only a matter of time before Ali lowers the boom.
Ali swings with his right. What a beautiful swing.
But the punch lifts Frazier clean out of the ring.
Frazier's still risin', and the referee wears a frown...
'cause he can't start countin' till Frazier comes down.
Frazier's disappeared from view. The crowd is getting frantic.
But our radar stations picked him up. He's somewhere over the Atlantic.
Now, who would've thought when they came to the fight...
they was gonna witness the launchin' of a black satellite.
But don't wait for that fight.
It ain't never gonna happen.
Only thing you could do...
is wonder and imagine. "

"The three toughest fighters I ever fought were Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Robinson and Sugar Ray Robinson. I fought Sugar so many times, I'm surprised I'm not diabetic."

After talking all that trash about every fighter rumored to possibly face Danny Garcia, when asked about Danny fighting Floyd, Angel said "It's going to be a spiritual fight." lmaoooo In other words... I'm not going to talk shit because my son is going to get his ass handed to him if I do.

Well Tarver was recently found to be on PEDs for that fight, so why couldn't he be then.

I mean you would be more likely to accuse someone thats been caught with PEDs than someone thats tested clean there entire career wouldn't you?

Another quote from million dollar baby:

"The body knows what fighters don't: how to protect itself. A neck can only twist so far. Twist it just a hair more and the body says, "Hey, I'll take it from here because you obviously don't know what you're doing... Lie down now, rest, and we'll talk about this when you regain your senses." It's called the knockout mechanism."

And of course, brother Nazim...

"Swim without getting wet"
Col Reb
Two Tyson favorites:

"I don't know, man, I guess I'm gonna fade into Bolivian."

ďMy power is discombobulatingly devastating. I could feel his muscle tissues collapse under my force. It's ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.Ē


Favorite Arum quote:

"Yesterday I was lying. Today I'm telling the truth"

Amandla
"In some ways that fight gave me more respect around the world and helped me be even more popular because so many people felt my pain and saw that I was robbed."
Marvin Hagler

"Shane said all I care about is fighting for money. Motherfucker. I'm a prize fighter. That's what I'm supposed to fight for. A prize...dummy."

"You got that big shot and got happy. I wish you didn't land that big shot. That big shot come down the road. You gotta work for that." Brother Naz

"Most people who aren't Mayweather fans consider him to be a pure punk, he's a talented coward the way they see it, and I disagree with that. I think this kid can rumble. I think he can stand in there and rumble a little bit. My impression of the fight? Shane's gonna come out and hit Floyd in the mouth, and Floyd is gonna sprout a tail, grow wings, draw fangs and claws and turn into a Dragon in the ring and start spittin fire balls." Brother Naz
