The sport of boxing is almost always tough and vicious.
While it has lost much of its luster in recent years as Mixed Martial Arts fighting takes greater hold, the sport of boxing can be both artistic and brutal at the same time when two top-level fighters engage in a hard-hitting bout.
However, the sport can easily turn vicious when one fighter or another gets an edge and then pounds his opponent without mercy. That's the nature of the sport. When both fighters are in top condition and throwing hard punches at each other's heads and upper body, serious injuries can occur in a fair fight.
But what happens when a fighter tries to go outside the rules to get an edge in his fight? If a fighter attempts to win a fight by cheating, an opponent can get damaged seriously and careers can end.
In this piece we will look at four fighters who engaged some serious cheating in an effort to secure victory.
We have not included rumors of cheating, only documented cases.
