When it gets to the part in life where you’re more afraid of what your wife is going to do to you than if you box, say, Mike Tyson, you’ve got to get a new profession. You don’t get to be a family. I know why boxers never quit, some of them. They don’t have wives.

Women boxers prefer to focus on the win rather than the bravado. We’ve come a long way. In the ’90s, you only ever saw women parading in heels and a bikini holding a scorecard. Now we’re owning it; we should get some male models in Speedos to do the ring walk.
Sculpture and seams are like boxers and broken noses: They go hand in hand.

I’m into a casual-dressing girl: blue jeans and a tank top is super sexy. But the sexiest thing on a girl – when I see it I’m like, oh my God – is these little tight boxers. Don’t get me wrong, g-strings are fine, but those cover a little, to where it’s just enough.
For the birth of one champion, there are many young boxers behind them who had setbacks. In terms of that, I think boxing is very dramatic.

Gene Luen Yang

Kell Brook is a strong fighter. He likes to dictate the pace, which most boxers like to do. He likes to use his jab to set up other punches, like the left hook.

We’d always said boxers shouldn’t lift weights. Now I realize some champion boxer started that rumor.

Spend 40 minutes in there lifting weights.
It’s sad to see boxers sometimes when they’ve come from these massive highs with thousands of people screaming for them. They’re the best at what they do – then, that’s it: stopped, finished.

A lot of boxers have too much on their plate.

Boxers, man, except when I have to get dressed up. Then it’s boxer-briefs. But never tighty-whities. Never. But dude! If they brought back Underoos? Dude, if they brought back Underoos, I would rock the Underoos. Like He-Man and Transformers and G.I. Joe and even like Dukes of Hazzard.

Boxers Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank would not have missed their rivalry for all the world, and I don’t mind a bit of needle in darts if it helps to pay the bills.
