The best fighter is not a Boxer, Karate or Judo man. The best fighter is someone who can adapt on any style. He kicks too good for a Boxer, throws too good for a Karate man, and punches too good for a Judo man.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

Boxing is a lot of white men watching two black men beat each other up.
I am the astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots. I'm in a world of my own.
