I've chosen a few...

James "Buster" Douglas

- He caused the biggest upset ever when he beat Mike Tyson... but was demolished in 4 rounds by Evander Holyfield in his very first and only defence!

Frank Bruno

- Personally... I LIKE HIM... and felt as though he was only ever at his worst against Mike Tyson... for some reason... he was just weak against him and scared of him... yet he has taken down much bigger and stronger opponents! ANYWAYS... after defeating Oliver McCall and finally winning a Heavyweight Championship that he so richly deserved... he was demolished by a past his prime Mike Tyson in his first defence in just 3 rounds. He retired after that fight. I felt kind of uneasy watching Bruno always going for holds and clinches against Tyson... it was a very messy and embarassing performance... and a humilating end to what was a pretty damn good career!

Bruce Seldon

- For some reason... I HATE HIM! Tyson hardly did a thing against him the night Tupac Shakur got killed. We've all seen Tyson destroy opponents within seconds... but in this fight... he literally did NOTHING to beat him! HARDLY TOUCHED HIM... what a weak champion!

NOTE: If Bruce Seldon was paid off to take a dive... he is still weak... especially the way in which he looked when he was taking the dive IF IT WAS a dive! If he was threatened with his life or family or something like that... I'll let him off... but that hasn't been proved! From all I know... he was beaten fair and square!

Francois Botha

- I've always liked him... but anyone who takes steroids... NO MATTER HOW GOOD THEY ARE... NO MATTER HOW GOOD A REASON... is a cheat! He wasn't officially recognised as The IBF Heavyweight Champion... but I'm putting him on this list anyways!!!

Rid**** Bowe

- That whole incident when he dumped the title in the trash... BIG DISGRACE!

Leon Spinks

- I put him up here because I always thought of him as overrated... he is not as good as Michael or Cory. YES... HE WON A GOLD MEDAL... and he beat Ali in an upset... but he lost to that same man later in the year! Ali was past his prime and over the hill... yet he beat Leon Spinks. Leon Spinks drank, smoked, partied and possibly did drugs... and went downhill! He had 17 CAREER LOSSES AS A PROFESSIONAL BOXER... that's a lot for a guy who is supposed to be really good!

OTHER

Is there somebody I haven't mentioned that was a disgrace to you? 'TELL ME!'

Here is just a correction, Holyfield demolished Douglas in 3 not 4. Also I never thought Carnera was the best champ.

I said Seldon because he got in the ring with Tyson a threw the fight. Not saying that I think that he had a shot at beating Tyson im just saying. Tyson grazed his forehead with a punch while Seldon was backing up, so why did Seldon fall forwards?????? That was the first fight that I saw someone take a dive.
