I would like to know the origin of the quotation 'Let them come to you and they'll beat themselves', or something closely approximating to that. It refers to boxing, and I think was said by a famous boxer of the past, although I don't know which one.

I don't know the origin but this quote is really nice:

I think my grandmother saw my potential first. When I was young, I told her, 'I think I should get a job.' She said, 'No, just keep boxing.'
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
