"You can run, but you can't hide" is a saying attributed to the US heavyweight boxer Joe Louis, spoken on 19 June 1946. Joe Louis and Billy Conn were about to face each other in a title fight when Louis declared the famous phrase. Since that time, the phrase has been used in movies, entertainment, and conversationally.
