Evander Holyfield turned down a role in Rocky 5 because his character would have to get knocked out. When you see what he's doing to his reputation now its hard to imagine thats the same guy. Terry Norris was a star baseball player in highschool. During one game someone on the opposing team called him a "N*gger" and he rushed him from home plate and knocked him and 2 of his teammates out. This might be well known but Teddy Atlas pulled a gun on Mike Tyson for grabbing his niece's ass.
