    Tex Cobb on a potential rematch with Holmes:

    "I don't think his hands could take the abuse."

    On being informed that commentator Howard Cosell had hung up his mike after being so appalled at the one-sidedness of the Holmes-Cobb fight:

    "I can do my sport no greater service."

    Also my signature.

    Apologies for the language used...

    In 1980 or so, there was a big dinner honouring heavyweights of the past and present. Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Larry Holmes were all there. So were Renaldo Snipes and Tex Cobb. In his usual fashion, Tex Cobb got up to give a toast. He said, "I'm honoured to be in the same room as some of the baddest n*****s ever." Renaldo Snipes stood up, and said, "I'm not going to stand here and let you call me a n*****!" Cobb said, "Relax. I wasn't talking about you."

    I remember when Roberto Garcia took on Ben Tackie,Joe Goosen was Tackie's trainer.After getting hit about 75 flush times and outclassed BAD in the first round,he came back to his corner and the first thing Goosen says to him is"Hey,your gonna knock this guy out".At that moment I thought,what an idiot,if anything,he keeps taking shots like that,he's going out.I'll be damn in the last round,he did just that.Knocked grampa out with one punch.At the time,it was the worst quote I ever heard,but in hindsight,it was fucking genius.Oh yeah,the one consortium said about Tex Cobb at the dinner with Snipes is sbout some of the funniest shit I've heard in a minute.

    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. - Muhammad Ali

    Let the other guy have whatever he wants before the fight. Once the bell rings he's gonna be disappointed anyway. - George Foreman

    The bigger they are, the harder they fall. - Bob Fitzsimmons

    How dare these boxers challenge me with their primitive skills? - Mike Tyson

    It's ludricrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm. - Mike Tyson

    He went to the hospital with bleeding kidneys and me, I went dancing with my wife. - George Chuvalo

    His mouth made him felt like he was gonna win. Not his hands, I had my hand. He had his lips. - Joe Frazier

    Once that bell rings you're on your own. It's just you and the other guy. - Joe Louis

    The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters. - Cus D'Amato

    I have my mind focused on one thing and that's to destroy him. That is to knock him out.

    That's what I feel, "WAR". That's what is on my mind.

    I've been feeding the faith and I've been starving the doubt. So there's no doubt in my mind that I can't win this fight and that I won't knock Thomas Hearns out.
