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.
11. Wladimir Klitschko
My goal is not getting hit and to knock the other guy out. Some people might complain because they want to see boxers beat up on each other, but you cannot last long in professional boxing if you take a lot of punches.
12. Sugar Ray Leonard
I was not athletically inclined. I was very quiet, introverted, non-confrontational. My three older brothers were athletes – basketball, football – but I was kind of a momma’s boy. Then one day, my brother Roger encouraged me to go to the boxing gym with him. I tried the gloves on, and it just felt so natural.

19. Tyson Fury
Any man who puts a pair of gloves on deserves respect because lots wouldn’t dream of it. To get in there and go one-on-one, you need your hand shaking afterwards. Many men wouldn’t get involved.
20. Sugar Ray Robinson
Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart, and that’s in rhythm or you’re in trouble. Your rhythm should set the pace of the fight. If it does, then you penetrate your opponent’s rhythm. You make him fight your fight, and that’s what boxing is all about.
21. Joe Frazier
I don’t think a man has to go around shouting and play-acting to prove he is something. And a real man don’t go around putting other guys down, trampling their feelings in the dirt, making out they’re nothing.
22. Mike Tyson
I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.

I told my mother I was going to become a world champion and buy her a home.

That’s my gift. I let that negativity roll off me like water off a duck’s back. If it’s not positive, I didn’t hear it. If you can overcome that, fights are easy.
31. Anthony Joshua
Wherever you get to is better than where you started. To stay on the road is a massive achievement.
32. Joe Frazier
I wasn’t a big guy. People thought the big guys would eat me up. But it was the other way around. I loved to fight bigger guys.
33. Manny Pacquiao
Boxing is not about your feelings. It’s about performance.
34. Keith Thurman
I don’t think about losing or worry about losing. I’m not afraid to let it go and I don’t care if you beat me. If you do, that means you were the better man, but only elite fighters can beat me. There can’t be shame in losing because you are up against great competition and there’s always that chance.

40. Jack Dempsey
A good fighter usually knows, to within a very few seconds, when a three-minute round is going to end.
41. Jake LaMotta
Forward, always moving forward, from the time I can remember – a kid. I was short, and the big guys would take advantage; I had to turn myself into a body puncher. By that time I was in reform school, they’d have a boxing match every week; they’d bring guys in from outside to fight me.
42. Jermell Charlo
We do a lot of twisting and turning in our training. Those types of moves really help get the body moving and make sure we’re staying agile, which is so important in the ring.
43. Frank Bruno
My trainer, George Francis, used to train a lot of African boxers. They’re hungry guys, man. They’ve got no trainers, got nothing. They’re so hungry to do boxing, to make some money.
44. Muhammad Ali
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.

You know if you want to be a boxer the first time you get hit on the nose.
47. Frank Bruno
Boxing is the toughest and loneliest sport in the world. You’ve got all the fans, lots of hangers-on jumping up and shouting different words. But when you actually go in the ring, it’s a very lonely and scary place. It’s just you and the other guy.
