8 Of The Worst Beatings in Boxing/MMA History
 

 
9. Evander Holyfield – 1997

Let’s start with the low-hanging fruit here. It was a 1997 title bout that had Tyson actually consumed part of Evander Holyfield’s ear. Ok, so he didn’t swallow it, but if you asked him, he could probably tell you what it tasted like. Tyson’s career was on the downslope, but he was still a formidable f!ghter who was very much in the f!ght. He bit off a piece of Evander’s ear, and had two points deducted. This was probably for the sake of preventing a riot at the MGM Grand Casino. Anyway, Tyson did the exact same thing again after the bell rang, the f!ght was called, people rioted, and I’m pretty sure it left Holyfield hearing slightly better out of his left ear than his right.



8. Vitali Klitschko – 2003

Going up against title holder Lennox Lewis, Vitali was doing everything right. However, one Lewis shot got past him and cut a gash over his left eye. Klitschko continued to f!ght, dominating against Lewis, but in the 7th round, the doctors thought the cut was bad enough (look for yourself) to stop the f!ght. Since it wasn’t the result of any shady behavior, but rather just an unlucky break, Lewis got the TKO, despite Klitschko leading on all the cards. The crowd booed Lewis upon the announcement, and Klitschko got the reputation for being one of the toughest heavyweights in the business.

7. Richard Grant – 2001

This guy made the mistake of trying to congratulate his opponent after winning the bout. However, James Butler thought little of this gesture and, for reasons completely unknown, belted Grant without any gloves on, knocking him out and breaking his jaw. Three years later, Butler was convicted of k!lling Sam Kellerman, the brother of ESPN boxin analyst Max Kellerman.

6. Mark Hominick – 2011

Amazingly, this MMA f!ght actually made it to decision, with Hominick losing to opponent Jose Aldo by decision. Regardless of what injury it is determined that Hominick suffered (subdural hematoma is my guess, and I’m a writer so I’m totally qualified to diagnose ailments) the image alone is enough to at best drive away fans and at worst attract attention by inquiring regulatory bodies. This probably won’t go down as the worst injury ever sustained in MMA, but it’s certainly one of the most graphic.

5. Billy Collins – 1983


[video - click to view]


Collins went up against Luis Resto in this 1983 bout. Resto stepped into the ring knowing fully well that his trainer, Panama Lewis, had removed padding from his gloves to make Resto’s punches more damaging. Mission accomplished. His cheating cost Collins his vision in both eyes. Unfortunately, this clip doesn’t show the culmination of Resto’s cheating, but rest a.ssured that these punches played a role in handicapping Collins for life.

4. Jon Thaxton – 1998


[video - click to view]


It’s no surprise that Thaxton suffers from migraine that stem from abuse taken “early in his career.” I think I can pinpoint the exact moment, actually. It’s about two minutes into this video that brain damage probably began to set in. He’s still functional these days, but I wouldn’t say he’s at his best. Remarkably (insanely) he went on to f!ght for another 11 years. That couldn’t have helped the issues in his dome.

3. Hasim Rahman – 2002


[pic - click to view]



This, um, condition was obtained following a f!ght with Evander Holyfield in the twilight of Holyfield’s career. Well, if you can cause this kind of damage to your opponent, my guess is that you still have a little something in the tank. This was to be Rahman’s comeback f!ght after losing to champion Lennox Lewis earlier. Unfortunately, the goal of a comeback f!ght is to “come back” rather than to “have your head explode.” Tricky business, this boxing.

2. Antonio Margarito – 2010


[pic - click to view]



You get as good as you give in this sport, and Margarito’s pummeling at the hands of Manny Pacquiao probably serves as sweet consolation to Sugar Shane Mosley, who beat Margarito despite the fact that Margarito had dipped his hand wraps in plaster of Paris before the f!ght. Well, things come full circle and Manny had his way with Margarito to such an extent that he had to skip the postf!ght conference and go straight to the hospital. Oh well.

1. Jess Willard – 1919


[video - click to view]


Jess Willard received what is largely considered the worst beating in boxing history in this f!ght at the hands of Jack Dempsey, who put a large sum of money on himself at 10-1 to knock out Willard in the first round. Dempsey was the challenger, but he was 13 years younger and in much better shape. Dempsey didn’t take him out in the first round, so the beating continued for two more rounds while Willard refused to throw in the towel. Eventually, even the crowd was begging for the f!ght to be stopped. Just watch the video.

I remember when that Hasim Rahman-Holyfield f!ght happened. EVERYBODY and they momma was talking about how Rahman got lumped up. And Im talking about offline, not online. When it happened, you literally couldnt go anywhere in the hood without hearing nyggas laughing about that sh*t. That f!ght also made Rahman into a few punchlines too.

More vicious f!ghts in MMA
nah

More people have gotten serious injuries in boxing than in MMA

Getting repeatedly punched in the face over several rounds is pretty serious. MMA f!ghts usually end before any serious damage gets done

Looking at that last video, Im glad boxing has structure now. Dude got knocked down 7+ times in one round and it was still going. The ref never checked dude to make sure he was ok after he got up.

At the end of the Resto f!ght, you can hear Collins' father yelling that Resto's gloves had no padding. He literally ruined that dude's life. Collins was a fu*kin warrior, he basically got hit with rocks for 10 rounds and didn't quit.

That Lewis-Vitali f!ght still makes me mad. Vitali was whoopin on him till that cut. I wanted to see a rematch so bad. Lennox retired soon after. He knew he wanted no part of him again

Agreed. Cotto got it pretty bad from those bricks too.
