By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Who doesn't like a good quote or two? Count me in! 

Below, I have compiled a few great quotes from recent boxing news. Enjoy!

Celebration? Where's the Party at?!

Freddie Roach quoted by Sports Illustrated on why his side isn't celebrating after Manny Pacquiao's latest victory over Juan Manuel Marquez.

Roach stated: "People asked me, 'Why aren't you celebrating? Celebrate what? We won, but that guy still has our number."

Oh Canada Eh!

“The first fight that I did, we got chased out of the country,” recalls Boxing Promoter Bob Arum of his attempts to stage Ali versus Ernie Terrell, which ended up seeing Chuvalo face “The Greatest” instead in March of 1966. Arum tells Steve Kim of “I had one pair of shoes. I wore them out. I’ll never forget; I had a hole in my shoe and then going to Toronto and then the Ontario Parliament voting on whether to allow them to fight- and we won by one vote. And Harold Ballard, the co-owner of the Maple Leafs and the Maple Leafs Garden, he was confronted by ‘Connie’ Smythe, who said that if you allow this guy [Ali] into the building, ‘I’m going to prevent it.’ And so Ballard had to buy [Smythe] out of the team and the building. THAT’S real pressure.”  (Makes Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito vs. The NYSAC, look like a walk in the park!)

Retired or Hayfever brewing?

Adam Booth, David Haye's trainer in regards to Haye returning next year and facing Vitali Klitschko.  Booth tells Sky Sports: "But as far as I'm concerned at the moment, the fight isn't happening and David is retired. That's all I can say."

Pick up a Floyd "Money" Mayweather video!

Adrien Broner said in a teleconference Monday: "When you've been in the boxing game as long as I have, I don't look at my opponent until I'm in the ring with him. You don't fight the same fight when you're in the ring (with a new opponent). I'd rather put in a video of Floyd Mayweather, and pick up some new moves."
