Rocky Marciano didn't know enough boxing to know what a feint was. He never tried to out-guess you. He just kept trying to knock your brains out. Archie Moore


On his fight with Floyd Patterson being switched to the Windy City- Don't matter where the fight is. My punches are just as hard in Chicago as in New York. Sonny Listen


On being asked to name his best punch - I don't know, I've never hit myself. Elisha Obed


Jack Dempsey hits like an epileptic pile-driver. Harry C.Witwert


Larry Holmes doesn't hit as hard as Earnie Shavers. Nobody hits like Shavers. If anybody hit harder than Shavers, I'd shoot him. Randall Tex'Cobb


Before his fight with Cassius Clay-i can be found the next couple of months trying to perfect my new punch - the lipbuttoner. Archie Moore
