Default Biggest jerks outside the ring

I am a big wrestling fan. You can find interviews of former stars. Like Bret hart and ric flair. They are bitter and angry. And then there's hulk hogan. He was a politician and a jerk backstage. So I was wondering about how many cases like this exsit in the world of boxing? Any thoughts? Sugar ray lenord deserves a mention for what he did to Marvin hagler.

In the current era, Floyd Mayweather is probably top of the pile

Ali was pretty much a jackass. Totally full of himself and ridiculing his opponents for a cheap laugh.

I've heard Holyfield is actually pretty stuck up.
Robinson was a complete jerk and big wife beater.
LaMotta, while fan friendly, was also a scumbag at the same time. LaMotta is a very interesting man.

Monzon beat his wives and murdered his last one. He was serving time for it when he was killed.

What did Ali think about Sonny Liston adopting a little white boy from Sweden? Did it get him bitchslapped outside the Thunderbird again?

I assume the kid was white, though.

Dempsey was a small time pimp and blatantly ducked fighting in The Great War, fabricating photos and alibis.

But he was a saint.

I'd never heard about Liston adopting the little boy. I just found several articles about it on Google. I assume he was white, too.
Thanks for the info.

Hector Camacho, Sr. was a 24/7 mugger 'n trouble-maker -- a felony with shoes on. Nothing kept him in check.

To be polite, he found things before they were lost.

Jerk, or complete scumbag?

LaMotta, Monzon, Ayala, Jo-El Scott, and Morel are/were scumbags.

McGrain and Stonehands are the Liston aficionados here. All Marciano fans are not, except SuzieQ.

James Butler. Massive sucker punch to his oponent after their fight. Brutally murdered Max Kellerman's brother.
