I thought I'd start a boxing trivia thread.  The only rule is that whoever answers the trivia question correctly gets to post the next trivia question (after the author of the question confirms that the answer is correct).  Questions can pertain to any weight class.

 

Here we go....

 

This former World Champion fought a total of only 138 minutes during his title reign.  During that time he made $2,137,000...or a staggering $15,000 per minute.  Who is he?

Must be Mike Tyson?

Good guess...but, No...not MIke Tyson.   Please try again.

 

An interesting side note:  Mike Tyson was fined more money for biting the ears of Evander Holyfield in their second fight than the fighter in question earned during his entire title reign.  (I guess this could actually be considered a clue if you think about it.)

Holyfield?

Nope...not Holyfield. 

 

Holyfield earned over $30 million for having his ears bit in just that one fight against Tyson.  The above clue was meant more as a clue as to the time frame in history.  Here's another time frame clue:  Muhammad Ali pocketed $10 million for his fight against George Foreman in 1974... whereas the fighter in question earned just over $2 million for the entirety of his title reign. 

 

Keep trying.
