You play your character and it isn't right to step out of it. You have to stay in that character.
You open the show with a bang, then don't come back on for 45 minutes.
You have to remember, I didn't want this life.
Why stop now when I'm just getting the hang of it
Rocky Marciano had such guts and heart. He was something special.
Joe Louis was one of my first heroes.
If people like what I do, fine. If they don't, fine.
I'm a performer. We don't retire.
I wanted to be a plumber.
I think that people who have Vegas throat are people who sing from their throats only.
I only eat one meal a day. Lunch, not dinner.
I like being on this stage because it keeps me thinking.
But I don't work out. I pay people to do that for me.
And of course coming from Massachusetts, Rocky Marciano was my favorite.
The only good thing about going to the fights is you can go into the green room and you can see some of your old friends that you haven't seen in a long time.
So I've been a fight fan for a long time.
I don't work in Las Vegas all the time.
Hey, I've been doing what I do for a long time, my friend.
I don't watch a lot of featherweight fights yet some of those fights are the best fights ever.
Ali and I have become friends over the years. I was on a plane with him one time when he was the champion.
If you do a musical you can't change the dialogue it has been written for you. You can't change the music every night, you have to sing it that way.
It's obvious that they're going to want Ali's daughter and Frazier's daughter to fight it out.
Ali's daughter is fighting and Joe Frazier's daughter is fighting as well.
There's nobody in show business that I dislike so I wouldn't want to get in there to hurt anybody.
I've been a boxing fan ever since I was a kid.
