The latest edition of our favourite quotes from the week includes Dereck Chisora's bid for global domination, Usain Bolt possibly finding a new team to support and someone revealing Tiger Woods does have a sense of humour.

"Me and Alex we are friends. But now there is a new manager I am slightly worried about my chances of making the team."
Usain Bolt would have absolutely no issues with the pace of the Premier League, but he's clearly probably seen Everton and is unsure how he will fit into David Moyes' get-it-forward-to-the-big-man style at Manchester United now the Scot's replaced Sir Alex Ferguson

"He's got to watch his mouth, has Grovesey-boy."
We've seen Carl Froch fight (George Groves probably has too, to be fair) and if we were told to watch our mouth, we'd button it.

"There's a cliche in boxing that records are only for DJs."
There's not yet any confirmation as the whether Dereck Chisora's coach Don Charles has moved into the CD age

"I said, 'I go to the Masters as well. I sell shirts in the golf shop while you're playing golf.' He laughed."
Merion assistant professional Sean Palmer reveals how he bonded with Tiger Woods when the world No. 1 made a recent trip to the course to check out the US Open venue

"I don't think I'm like two fights away from the world title shot, I think I'm one fight away."
It would appear that Dereck Chisora feels he is one victory over Malik Scott away from a shot at world domination

"I learned during all my career to enjoy suffering, and these kind of matches are very special."
It's fair to say there was plenty of physical pain during Rafael Nadal's five-set win over Novak Djokovic at the French Open
