9. Roy Jones, Jr.

Date: 8/7/1997
Match: Roy Jones Jr. v. Montell Griffin
Craziest Line: "Thank ya everybody in Pensa-co-la! Roy Jones still number one and gon' be that way ba-by! For all these doubters, him [Larry Merchant] and all the rest of them that think Roy Jones is a fluke, now they know!"
After losing his light heavyweight title to Montell Griffin five months earlier due to disqualification (hit while Griffin was still down), Roy Jones, Jr. bounced back in the rematch with a first-round knockout. He starts out this interview by shouting out his hometown (Pensacola, Fla.) then addresses all the haters. And by all the haters we mean Larry Merchant. Do any boxers like this dude?
