When Mike Tyson took a chunk out of Evander Holyfield's ear during their title bout, he gave a new meaning to the expression "chewing up an opponent". Tyson's gruesome assault was a low point for the sport of boxing, but by no means was the incident unique. Conrad Dobler, known throughout the NFL as "Dracula", admitted to biting opposing players as he proudly wore the title of "the meanest man in football". Dobler was so aggressive on the gridiron that rules had to be changed to protect other players.

And it's not just the men who earned a bad reputation. Tonya Harding put women's figure skating in a harsh spotlight when she arranged to have rival Nancy Kerrigan put out of commission shortly before the 1994 Winter Olympics.

Some of the more notorious characters featured in this book are Dennis Rodman (basketball), The Fabulous Moolah (wrestling), Mike Tyson (boxing), Ty Cobb (baseball), Tonya Harding (figure skating), and Ilie Nastase (tennis).

Price = 17.95 USD
