Luis Resto (pictured on the right) will forever be remembered for his part in one of the ugliest moments in boxing (and sports) history. After his 1983 bout with Billy Collins Jr., Resto was found to be using thinly padded gloves and hand wraps cast in plaster of Paris. Resto and his trainer, Panama Lewis, were later convicted of assault and other charges; the boxer was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison. Collins' boxing career came to an eventual end, the result of permanent eye damage. Less than a year later, Collins ran his car into a ditch, killing himself instantly. Damn, does this sport have any happy endings?
