Michael Tyson

As a kid, I watched with fascination every month on HBO as the young sensation marched through his opponents, with Tiger Woods like dominance, on his guaranteed way to overtaking Rocky Marciano as the greatest fighter every.

His fall has been particularly brutal and sad, another example of the evil of Don King and the way in which a seedy sport destroys the lives of the clueless young men it fosters.

At this point, after blowing close to a billion dollars, I just don't know whether his continued quest is more sad or pathetic.
