My boxing coach once told me ‘’boxing is a mugs game’’. To me it’s the ultimate test of competition. Boxing like in the movies is show business, like a soap-opera there are characters and like life there is also a dark side. Yet all these factors combined is what makes ‘’the sweet science’’ one of the most exciting and unpredictable sports in the world.
Here are my top ten boxing quotes of all time:
10. “Earnie Shavers could punch you in the neck and break your ankle.” Randall “Tex” Cobb.
Randall Cobb is known for having one of the best chins in boxing history. That means he could take a punch from a bear and keep moving forward. His granite face stood the test against some of the toughest men in boxing. Earnie Shavers was one such man. The ability to take punishment in the ring is just as important as dishing it out.
