“[He] called me a ‘rapist’ and a ‘recluse.’ I’m not a recluse.” – No…words…
"My main objective is to be professional but to kill him." – That’s that sorted, then.
"This is my career. I have children to raise. I have to retaliate. He butted me. Look at me. My kids will be scared of me." You know what, Mike? I’m sure they will…
"You're sweet. I'm going to make sure you kiss me good with those big lips. I'm gonna make you my girlfriend." – Mike declaring his frankly worrying love for Razor Ruddock.
"He was screaming like my wife." Mike’s opinions of Tyrell Biggs revealing more about his personal life than anyone needs to hear about.
"I paid a worker at New York's zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cage there was 1 big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let smash that silverback's snotbox! He declined." – Gee whiz, I wonder why.
"Anyone with a grain of sense would know that if I punched my wife I would rip her head off. It's all lies. I have never laid a finger on her." – In a weird, twisted way, you can’t argue with the logic.
"You have to understand, Frank Bruno would not have been champion if I had not been in prison. Oliver McCall would not have been champion if I had not been in prison. A lot of these guys would not have been champion. Michael Moorer would not have been champion. Those guys would not have been champion if I had been around. They would have had no legacy. None of those guys would have had a legacy." – Depends if you count a sentence for rape as a ‘legacy’, really.
"I try to catch him right on the tip of the nose, because I try to push the bone into the brain." – Sometimes Mike enjoys amateur surgery.
“I want to throw down your kid and stomp on his testicles, and then you will know what it is like to experience waking up everyday as me. And only then will you feel my pain.” - ……..Jesus.
