"350 amateur fights, he knows what to do against anything."
"Oh my goodness . . . There's a monster in the middleweight division!"
"He's number one. I like him. I like the way he fights. If you watch him, see how he controls the ring, and how he cuts the ring off, and the way he sets people up for the big shots, he's much more intelligent fighter than people realize, he's very, very clever. I like it. I try to teach what he does to all my fighters, and not everyone can do it, but he's amazing at it. Ring generalship, no one thinks about it, 'cause nobody knows of it anymore, but it's the first thing I was taught by my trainer Eddie Futch, and it stuck with me my whole life: If you put yourself in a good position ninety percent of the time, ya'll win ninety percent of the fights, I promise you. That's what he does."
"If this what the guy look like when he's sick, God knows what he look like when he's well."
