That quote could easily be attached to the next Saturday between all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather and MMA mega-star Conor McGregor, but the quote was attributive to the late heavyweight champ Joe Louis.
He was ridiculing the 1957 heavyweight championship 2017 match between title holder Floyd Patterson and challenger Pete Rademacher, the 1956 Melbourne Olympic gold-medal winner.
Rademacher became the first and only challenger to fight for the heavyweight title in his pro debut. He actually dropped Patterson in round two, but was subsequently knocked down seven times en route to being stopped in six.
Mayweather, 40, retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional Fight record while boastful Irishman McGregor,28,lightweight champion.
Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters of all time, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skillful movement about the ring while making adjustments against opponents on the fly.
McGregor,reigning lightweight world champion and former featherweight champion, is known as much for his bravado as for his explosive knockout power inside an MMA octagon.
