This week, we find one of the craziest stories in criminal athlete history! He had a rough start, as his dad was stabbed to death when he was 3 days old. He had a decent boxing career, even fighting Mike Tyson, but he was also leading a double life, as an enforcer for a brutal drug gang in West Baltimore. The same gang that was portrayed as "The Barksdales" in The Wire. And you'll never believe who betrays him, and finally turns him in for his vicious string of murders! This one is something special!

Box your way off the street & into the ring with Mike Tyson, remain on the streets as a no nonsense hitman, taking out the drug competition, and be turned in by one of the most notorious criminals in street history with Reggie Gross!!

Check us out, every Tuesday!

We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!
