    I think Whyte beats him up. I doubt we ever see the Ruiz that beat AJ again. Too rich too fat and no hunger.

    Is Mike Tyson not a convicted beast? Why is he in the public domain with everyone happy to interact with him as if nothing ever happened?

    Is there doubts over his conviction or are people just happy to kick about with a known rapist?

    At close to midnight on a long-forgotten February night, the guards brought out the cut, bruised and guilty man for one final piece of ridicule in front of a frothing crowd.

    The poor American, holding an ice pack to a swollen cheek, had no chance as he was ushered into a seat to face one final inquisition.

    I was in Mexico City in the filthy bowels of the majestic Azteca Stadium on a crisp night in 1993 and Greg Haugen, the American, was not a captive, just a beaten and * boxer.

    "This American dog had no chance to beat me," said Julio Cesar Chavez to roars and hoots from the 300 people at the post-fight press conference.

    Comments Thread For: Danny Trejo Discusses His Love For The Sport of Boxing
    Danny Trejo says he has boxing to thank for starting his Hollywood career, as he joins the latest episode of Matchroom Boxing's YouTube show Peleamundo'. Trejo has had the sport in his heart since he was a kid and having used boxing as a tool to get through prison time, the sport offered him a route into the entertainment industry and the LA native took it with both hands.
