Joe "Lethal Weapon" Savage. The guy went on a full fledged promotional tour and even did the Letterman Show bragging about fighting Tyson and Lewis in one night and trying to not kill mere mortals with a mighty backhand swat. Everyone was curious and started to believe the bravado. Then he decided to try Bert Cooper on for size. Kersplat!!! Guy looked like he'd never thrown a serious punch in anger in his life. For the diehard historians, I'd throw in Mike "The Mad Russian" Tarasewich. He got hyped as a Marciano rebirth and was getting pushed towards a big money showdown with Cooney in the Felt Forum and then his stock dropped like a cement blimp with a series of terrible performances that had Sports Illustrated suggesting he have his license pulled for his own safety.
