Rakim Oaks? Boxing Myth or reality?
There have been a lot of posts on 'esb' from respected posters regarding this one African fighter. Rakim Oaks.
He was supposedly a 6'7 super heavyweight prodigy with an IQ level higher than Stephen Hawkins, he went to the same prison as Mike Tyson and knocked out Tyson in back to back fights during Tyson's stint there. They said that he was a 6'7 250 pound fighter all muscles that moved like Sugar Ray Leonard and was the one that made Mike a Muslim.
He was also said to have fathered Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klistschko, which is weird because Lewis don't look half white and Wladimir don't look half black? Not only that, he's actually 3 years younger than Lewis....Anyways is this guy for reals or just a made up myth?
They said that after he got out of prison, instead of becoming the HW Champ, he just spend his life building ships out of toothpicks.
