According to legend, champion boxer Mike Tyson was once asked in an interview if he was worried about his opponent's plans. He said:
It's often claimed that he said this before one of his famous fights with Evander Holyfield, but Quote Investigator claims that it was actually in reference to his fight with Tyrell Biggs.
Tyson's prediction was 100% correct! He went on to knock out Biggs seventh round.
The actual quote appears to have been more like “Everybody has plans until they get hit for the first time”. The “punched in the mouth” version only seems to date back to 2004.
