If Hollywood's an all-embracing term for show biz, S, include Mario Lopez. He was a helluva HS wrestler; plus he opened eyes of gym rats regularly sparring at Wild Card a few years later, dropping, stopping 'n KO'ng top amateur 'n pro talent

There are so many intangibles to being a good pro, i rarely go out on a limb for a prospect (one day over a beer, we can talk about Jack Palance, Paul Newman 'n a host of others; but with one qualifier (if Mario had started boxing much earlier, just off his punching power alone, he could've been a crowd-pleasing contender, amateur or pro. He's truly a baby-faced assassin.)
