The 15 Greatest Sports Cheats Of All Time

Cheating has been at the forefront of sport in recent years, what with all the doping and steroid use. Soccer Lens has an article showing that this isn't a new phenomenon. Athletes have been cutting corners and doing everything they could to get an edge for many years. Take this truly despicable human being, boxing trainer Panama Lewis:

The lowlight of Lewis’ career was the 1983 fight between Lewis Resto and Billy Collins Jr. in which Lewis removed most of the padding from Resto’s boxing gloves. He also soaked the tape that went on Resto’s hands in plaster of Paris, meaning Resto was basically beating Collins Jr. with a plaster cast for ten rounds. Collins Jr.’s vision was blurred after the fight, leading to depression and a death nine months later in a car accident that some believed to be a suicide.

Pictured is Billy Collins, Jr. after the fight in question. Link

No, may be it was driving with blurred vision that did him in.

the link caused a program to run on my comp that made me freak out! a quite legit looking bubble popped up saying that my comp was infected and it needed to be scanned, and it just started scanning. i'm running all my anti-viruses to make sure that the "scan" didn't infect me with anything, but so far so good. still, seriously not cool. you may want to warn people...
