Reporter: Hey, you think it's about time for a hairpiece?
Drew 'Bundini' Brown: What you talking 'bout a hairpiece for? You already done lost all your hair, you cueball headed motherfucker.
Drew 'Bundini' Brown: Now I'm Jewish and he's Muslim, and because of that he tells me I need to give up certain things, like pork and white women... I can give up the Pork, but the white women? God Damn, how the hell do you do that?
Muhammad Ali: Sonny Liston, you ain't no champ! You a chump!"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!" Ahhh!"Rumble em', young man, rumble em'!"
Muhammad Ali: Hey, come on you big ugly bear, I'll turn you into a rug.
Sonny Liston: Keep talking! I'm gonna fuck you up.
Factual error: The poem Ali quotes in the movie before the Frazier fight, "Ali comes out to meet Frazier, Frazier starts to retreat, If he goes back any further, He'll end up in a ringside seat..." was in fact the poem he used before the first Liston fight and began, "Clay comes out to meet Liston, Liston starts to retreat..." and ends with the lines, "Never did they think, When they laid down their money, That they would witness, The total eclipse of the Sonny". Poor effort.
