Evander Holyfield spent the mid 80s in violent cruserweight title fights, but he decided that wasn't enough and began chasing Mike Tyson. He went up to the Heavyweight division and fought two,toe-to-toe for the most part of the most ferocious punchers of all time in Tyson and Foreman, Lewis and three wars with Riddick Bowe.

It doesn't get crazier/braver than Real Deal.

Yeah man I hear you. But I mean more antics. Like Mayorga going crazy in press conferences and letting Forrest smash him in the face.

Jorge Paez was one crazy ******* in the ring. a pretty damn good fighter too, his style was difficult to figure out. used to be in a circus.

Max Baer was also known as quite a clown in the ring, but at the same time when he was focused he was a very heavy hitter

Also Hamed and his annoying style and in ring attitude, but with lots of power.

Good shout on Johnny Tapia.

One active fighter who I genuinely believe has actual mental problems is Derek Chisora.

You didn't dig the prince?

From the entrances, to the taunting and the devastating knockout, I thought he was terrific showman. Can never have enough of that, in my opinion.

Oscar Bonavena, when preparing to fight Joe Frazier for the first time, would sniff the air with his nose up in the air like he smelled something stinky anytime Frazier & him got near each other. He would also say "Where's that pu$$y Frazier?"

That makes him macho.

Oscar was screwing Joe Conforte's wife at Joe's whore house, "The Mustang Ranch". Joe found out about his wife Sally being with Oscar & warned Oscar to get out of town. Oscar didn't & instead went BACK to the whore-house to confront Conforte. Conforte's "bodyguard", Willard Brymer, ended up shooting Oscar in the chest with a 30.06 rifle, killing him.

That made him crazy.

Oscar was one of my favorite fighters. Like many of us who can rattle off fight & fighter facts from memory, I remember the details about his life, career & death to this day. He was a very tough individual.

I was quite bamboozled by that.

Kind of put me off to be honest.

From his crazy pre fight kiss with that guy I can't remember the name of the guy he was fighitng.

To the press conferences with Wlad Klitschko.

To the fact he wears that hat saying 'I am the greatest'.

To allegedly beating his wife.

To simply the things he says in general conversation.

If it came out he had serious mental problems I wouldn't be suprised at all. :lol1:

I can't remember the guys name but when he kissed him at the face to face I was in shock.

I heard about that, I heard Fury got the better of him.

Apparently nothing happened though. Probably just to hype the fight.

Pryor was a nut before and during the fight. Pointing the glove at Arguello was pretty funny but creepy at the same time.

Whenever I saw Edwin Valero I knew that here was a bonafide psychotic individual. From KOing every single opponent he faced, to savagely beating his wife and family, to the final tragic end, the man just exuded menace and craziness at every turn. Not exactly what I'd call macho in the manly sense of the term, just an extremely dangerous looking guy that I wouldn't under any circumstances have wanted to mess with.

Maidana is another individual who gives off that menacing air, though I think he still has the majority of his screws still in place.

Great post.

Ball for ball, I think the Argentinians must be some of the most macho blokes in the world. They make even the Mexicans look tame at times.

Bonavena, Monzon, Jorge Castro, just an unbelievable amount of testosterone in those three names alone.

No one's mentioned Golota yet? Ear bites, headbutts, multiple combination ball punching, more headbutts, getting drunk off his head before fights, threatened with getting shot for beating up guys in bars, physically assaulting his trainer and leaving the ring in the middle of a fight because he couldn't be arsed to continue, and so on. Thought this guy would be a prime candidate.

Vinny Paz! The man was and still is a pure beast, all balls, guts and aggression. His rival Greg Haugen wasn't a tame guy either.
