Michael Dokes. He achieved a great deal in the ring, including beating Mike Weaver for the title with a one round stoppage. He looked maniacal in the celebration afterwards, then a cocaine habit decimated the man and his career. He will always be remembered as being knocked out by Razor Ruddock in devastating fashion. Dokes are very articulate and surprisingly intelligent. Shame to hear of him dying. He was so young still.
