"There aren't any boxers like me anymore, with such a character. You have Henry Maske or Rocchigiani or Axel Schulz who can't box. But someone who has is all... He's a bandit, he's a nice guy. Good for the brothel, good for the opera. I'm at home in both worlds. You might think I'm an asshole, but one with a golden heart."

Dariusz Michalczewski, aka the Tiger (born 1968), won 48 fights in a row out of 50 during his nine-year professional career - 39 of those wins through knockouts. In 2005, he challenged the French world champion Fabrice Tiozzo to one final fight.
