Muhammad has already quoted these phrases:

“When you’re big like me, it’s hard to be humble.”

“Champions are not created in gyms. They are made of something deeply meaningless within them. It is a dream, a desire, a vision.

“Someone who looks at life in their 50s, just as they do in their 20s, has wasted 30 years of life.”

“I’m so fast, I’m going to bed before it gets dark all over the room when I turn off the light.”

“Boxing is a group of whites where two black men are cunningly beating each other.”
