3. "Shed So Many Tears"

PLAYER: Oliver McCall
DATE: 7/2/1997
COMPLEX SAYS: By the time McCall faced Lennox Lewis in a rematch of their 1994 WBC Heavyweight Championship bout, McCall's several run-ins with the law and battle with drug addiction had robbed him of his prime years. But no one expected a meltdown of this magnitude. McCall simply refused to box and began crying midway through the fight. Referee Mills Lane put McCall out of his misery by stopping the fight in the eighth round. The "SMH" face on the cornerman at 5:54 tells the whole story.
