Some Boxing Quotes...

John Conteh: "I'm going down so often these days you'd think I was making a blue movie."
Rocky Marciano: "Why waltz with a guy for 10 rounds when you can knock him out in 1?"
Marvin Hagler: "Nothing can intimidate me. I just go out and destruct and destroy."
Alan Minter: "Sure there have been injuries and deaths in boxing - but none of them serious."
