Don King, on Mike Tyson

"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter?
He went to prison, not to Princeton."

"To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music
and the dancers hit each other."

Boxing Poem

Scorning all treacherous feud and deadly strife,

The dark stilletto and the murderous knife,

We boast a science sprung from manly pride,

Linked with true courage and with health allied

A noble pastime void of vain pretense,

The fine old English art of self-defense."

-Jem Burn, English 1820's bare knuckle boxer

Boxing in the Ancient World
