Hi everyone,

I saw the following comments in the comment session of a Facebook page for boxing fans. Here could you please tell me whether we can say "Lennox Lewis is arguably the GOAT. Fury couldn't tie his shoelace."?

    Yes. I'm not sure that this is an improvement, however. I suppose it depends on whether you use shoe or boot in your references to the footwear that boxers typically wear.

    There is a biblical reference behind this expression: "I am unworthy to untie the strap of his sandal" occurs several times in the New Testament.
