Quotes

#Quote
1One thing I learned from the '88 Olympics: It's not a question of if they can screw you over; it's a question of if they will. It's not the gold medal they took away from me. The medal doesn't mean anything. It's that they said I lost. That experience is well and alive in my mind.
2Roy Jones don't play that 'You hit me and I'll hit you.' I hit you and you don't hit me back. I'll fight toe-to-toe, to the death if I have to, but only if I have to. So far I've never had to.
