You think the world was shocked when Nixon resigned? Wait till I whup George Foreman's behind.
I'm more at home with my log cabins than I am in my house in Cherry Hill.

Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.
It takes pride and a tiger's drive to build up the confidence, the ego, the power to defeat an opponent in the ring.
I am the astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots. I'm in a world of my own.
