In the United States, female fisticuffs were marginalized, first as erotic vaudeville in the 19th century and later as serious competition developed in the first half of the 20th. Legal wars waged by boxers in the 1960s and ’70s won women the right to compete professionally nationwide.

Boxing should focus on pitting champion versus champion – those are the fights that everyone wants to see. The sports also needs to work on developing new heroes and personalities.

Wilder is like a windmill, he’s rubbish, he’s one of the worst boxers going.
Nigel Benn
In boxing, it just seemed to me from the time I was a very small child, we have a peculiarly civilized form in that boxers don’t screech and holler. They don’t use weapons. When the bell rings, they fight; when the bell rings again, they stop.

Callum Smith
I’m going to be a happy housewife. I’m going to be washing boxers and cooking and doing all those sorts of housewife duties. I just want to be happy and proud of every single day.

If chronic bashing of the head could destroy a boxer’s brain, couldn’t it also destroy a football player’s brain? Surely someone in the history of football had thought to look for dementia pugilistica. Unlike boxers, football players wear helmets, but a helmet can’t fully protect the head from damaging impact.

Ali vs. Stevenson would have served as a symbolic battle between the United States and Cuba, capitalism and communism: Castro’s values instilled in his boxers pitted against the values of ‘merchandise’ boxers from the rest of the world.
Brin-Jonathan Butler
I wanted to win the gold medal and then go home and further my education in college. I had no intentions whatsoever to become a professional fighter because I had heard horror stories about former boxers who made money but, in the end, ended up with nothing. I didn’t want to be one of those guys.
Sugar Ray Leonard

I learned in my Ph.D. the discipline I needed to be successful. Most boxers are not that disciplined.

My studies were about the control of training on both the psychological and the physical side.
Wladimir Klitschko
We were emerging from the period of war, of uniforms, of women-soldiers built like boxers. I drew women-flowers, soft shoulders, fine waists like liana and wide skirts like corolla.

I wrote this script in 2003, when I was a humble college student, sitting in my boxers and writing in my dorm room. And I came up with the idea of writing an action-based ‘Snow White,’ with this kind of Huntsman character as kind of a way in. So, that’s something I’m sort of proud of.
Evan Daugherty

Gene Luen Yang
I’ve kept improving in many ways. Boxers evolve with experience.
Carl Froch

Artem Lobov
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.
Colin Hanks
I interviewed around 20 women boxers and all of them told me they learnt boxing to get a job. At one point, I asked one boxer if she had the passion for sports. She told me ‘put some food in my belly and I’ll talk about passion.’

David Haye
Imagine stepping into the shoes of Roberto Duran, one of the most legendary boxers in the history of the sport, and definitely the most legendary Latin American boxer, and then having ‘Raging Bull’ in my corner. I mean, imagine that? Just having Robert De Niro to play the trainer in the movie, that was fantastic.
Edgar Ramirez
No, I’ve never competed. I did, however, train in a boxing gym with a good coach beginning in 1993. I’d been writing about the sport for a dozen years by then and wanted to know what boxers endured, what it felt like. I was too old to compete when I started, but I sparred enough to get a taste.
Katherine Dunn
For ‘Boxers and Saints’, the tension between Eastern and Western ways of thinking was very personal for me, and I needed to control every aspect.

If you compare me to an actor, I’m probably one of the best boxers in the profession. But if you compare me as a boxer, I’m probably one of the best actors.
Olivier Martinez
People like to see me fight. A name can only take you so far. There are only a few fighters out of the thousands of boxers out there that have name recognition. I’m definitely not upset by that.

Just like footballers want to play at Wembley, the Nou Camp and the Bernabeu, boxers have their dream arenas too.
Ricky Hatton
I think the ‘Boxers’ book was easier for me to envision as a comic, because they were on this epic journey. These teenagers basically gathered into this army and marched to the capital city where they had a showdown with the Europeans and Japanese. On the ‘Saints’ side, it was a lot trickier.

Michael B. Jordan
While professional basketball, football, and baseball players make millions and their salaries represent well over 50% of the billions generated by those sports, the spoils of boxing don’t often make it to the boxers.

Boxing does not favor boxers over 35 who rely on reflexes.
