I’m an ardent American Football fan.
All of my fighters should get down on their knees and thank me for what I’ve done for them.

I would never know how good I was if I didn’t have Bob Arum. Bob Arum is white, Jewish; He was working for prosecutor’s office. I’m black, an ex-convict, ex-number runner. Who would be most likely to succeed? It would be Bob 100-1. Yet I beat Bob on everything we ever done, with love.

Martin Luther King took us to the mountain top: I want to take us to the bank.
You can’t rule the world, but what you can do is win the world with love and understanding.
You can be the greatest guy in the world but if you ain’t got no heart, you ain’t gonna survive.
