Max Schmeling
I can't accept the title, to win it this way doesn't mean anything to me.
Schmeling quotes
Joe Louis is the hardest puncher that I've ever seen... He's a good man. Anyone who plans on beating him had better know what they're doing.
I said to myself, 'You're a man from a humble background, what you didn't learn in school, you'll learn now. Catch up.

Schmeling Max quotes
I received a letter from the Reich Ministry of Sports. They want me to split from Joe Jacobs, my manager since 1928.... I really need Joe Jacobs. I owe all my success in America to him.
