Ray Mercer spins merciless boxing yarns!

Ray Mercer, one of the most underappreciated heavyweights of his era, fought Larry Holmes, Evander Holyfield, Wladimir Klitschko, Lennox Lewis, Tommy Morrison, Bert Cooper, and multiple other big-time head-bangers in a career that spanned two decades. He won an Olympic gold medal, knocked out two-time UFC heavyweight king Tim Sylvia in 9 seconds of an MMA bout, and ultimately found his way into four different boxing halls of fame.
