Default Ike Ibeabuchi - what really happened?

What really happened to Ike Ibeabuchi? I know he committed rape and was sent to prison, but I also read things that he was going insane. He was hearing voices in his head and saw demons? Does anyone know anything about him?

I personally think he was one of the most fierced fighters ever, along with Mike Tyson and David Tua.

..."Whether or not the epic slugfest with Tua was to blame, Ike Ibeabuchi was fast becoming unglued. In a pathetic incident of what we now call "air rage," cops had to forcibly detain the incensed pugilist. He began to make ludicrous monetary demands of his promoters. He was tormented by demons visible only to his mother and himself. Much of his lunacy was reserved for his hapless sparring partners; one's head was split open, another almost had his leg broken.

A few months after the Tua fight, Ike abducted the son of a former girlfriend, threw him into his car, and drove straight into a concrete pillar, permanently injuring the poor boy. This atrocity earned Ike a paltry two months behind bars, but he was forced to pay an undisclosed amount of money to the boy's mother.

Incredibly, Ibeabuchi was permitted to continue boxing, where his madness seemed to work for him. He tore apart journeymen Tim Ray and Everton Davis, and became the first (and, so far, the only) man to stop "Rapid Fire" Chris Byrd. One thunderous left hook in the fifth round had Byrd down twice, and a subsequent barrage of power punches prompted the referee to put an end to the fight.

A few months later, Ike summoned a lap dancer to his hotel room at The Mirage in Las Vegas. The girl insisted on a cash payment up front, which enraged Ike to the extent that he forced her into a closet and raped her. The 6'2", 245 lb fighter brilliantly sought to evade capture by hiding in the bathroom; a few strategically directed shots of police-issue pepper spray managed to "flush" him out of there.

Ibeabuchi was subsequently sentenced to a whole heap of jail time for this misdeed, although rumors are circulating that various lawyers - who just happen to be fight fans - are working pro bono for his early release. They are reasonably confident that he will be out in six months to a year, despite his being anything but a model prisoner...."-ES BOXING

Thanks for the info. I actually read that too. I am hoping someone might have some more in depth information regarding the mystery, especially about him hearing voices and seeing demons.

The Tua fight set some kind of record? I don't think he would of beaten Lennox Lewis. I also read somewhere ( will try and post the link ) that he was just a pervert rapist bully boy, and the insane thig was just try to trying and get off with a lighter setnence...

Yes they set the record for most punches thrown in a heavyweight fight since the punch-counting system was implemented. He was a huge waste of talent... he could do it all and he had it all. He was 230 pounds of pure muscle, he had brilliant stamina, an iron jaw, good handspeed, and huge punching power. Most importantly he was skilled... he had a great jab, the ability to throw in combination with accuracy, he could fight on the inside or back off and box... he had the tools required to beat Lennox and it would of been a brilliant fight. Unfortunately due to him turning into a psychopath and being incarcerated such fights never materialised and he is nothing more then another sad story.

Perhaps President Bush will pardon him before his term is up so he can come back to fight.

I remember reading another article about how his superstitious mother told him that demons were after him. They're immigrants from Africa so I think his mother was into that type of old religion. This screwed with his psyche, of course, coz he believed her.
