Late in 2015 we got a new heavyweight champion named Tyson Fury. Perhaps with that name it should have been expected, but since gaining the title he hasn't done much more than spiral downward in oner way or another. Nobody knows yet why Tyson Fury is totally imploding, but he's not the first heavyweight to do so.

On this week's boxing history episode of Top Men Boxing Radio, historian and Compubox operator Aris Pina and Patrick Connor of The Fight City and more talk about some of the heavyweights in boxing history that just couldn't stay out of trouble.

There will be familiar names, to be sure. Leon Spinks, Mike Tyson, Michael Dokes... Just about anyone who lived through the 1980s in the heavyweight division, and some who didn't.
