I believe more in precision, when you have the capability,
like when you see a mosquito fly and you're able to hit it,
you're able to hit it with a couple of short sharp shots...
it's a beautiful thing.
- Alexis Arguello

I'd take precision any day over power;
as far as being tactical you know you have to see what's
going on in there and also understand that for every
punch that you or your opponent throws there's always
a counter shot or two which you have to be ready to fire or defend.
- Alexis Arguello

when the beast comes out and takes hold of us.

When you put the interest of a kid on money instead
of heart then you're destroying the beauty of our lives and our thought process,
which should be about how much responsibilities you
carry as an athlete and a citizen.
- Alexis Arguello

I made a gym, it's the best gym in Nicaragua,
I have kids that this year July 6th through the 11th
will be fighting and then will go on to the Central
American Games and I'm sure at least one will win a gold medal.
- Alexis Arguello

I had to get up run in the morning for 2 hours,
go to the gym and also get good opponents as sparring
partners because I'm a big believer in that how you
train is how you will fight at least when it came to me that's how it worked.
- Alexis Arguello

Aside from a handful of guys boxing is missing the good trainers,
that's why our sport is so in the air now because we
don't have people who have the capability to not only
train fighters but also train and create decent respectable citizens of the world.
- Alexis Arguello

When money comes into play then that's all it's about wanting money,
who's making the most who can get the most,
me, me me...
