The Richest Prize in Sport? Try telling some of these guys. These are top 10 favourite heavyweights. Purists should look away now.

1 Buster Douglas
Beat Mike Tyson. Took USD25m for rolling over against Evander Holyfield. Spent the lot on donuts.

2 Riddick Bowe
Riots. Dustbins. Kidnappings. Fridges in bedrooms. You just had to love him.

3 Jack Johnson
Made a few good ‘ol boys a bit angry.

4 Teofilo Stevenson
He loved the Revolution more than Don King’s millions.

5 Luis Firpo
The Wild Bull of the Pampas. Enough said.

6 Leon Spinks

Gap-toothed party animal.

7 Tim Tomashek
Clambered out of the crowd to fight for the world heavyweight title. No, really. More here.

8 Oliver McCall

Lobbed Christmas trees. Cried. Had ‘issues’.

9 Danny Williams

Beat Tyson. I was there. So what, it’s my blog.

10 Gene Tunney
Quoted Shakespeare. Whupped Dempsey. Laughed all the way to the bank.
