7: Evander Holyfield
When it comes to box office draws, few heavyweight boxers have ever had Mike Tyson’s power. As the youngest heavyweight world champion in history, he was renowned for his ability to dominate his opponents and to end fights quickly, usually by way of knockout. In his prime Tyson was a force to be reckoned with. Despite having many spectacular moments in the ring, he would also be remembered for one of the sport’s most notorious displays of unsportsmanlike conduct. In 1997 he fought Evander Holyfield for the world title, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In the third round while the two fighters were in a clinch, Tyson took a bite out of Holyfield’s right ear
6: Andrew Bogut
While he was playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, Andrew Bogut sustained a massive injury that would bench him for the rest of the season. In a match against the Phoenix Suns, the Bucks were on the fast break with Bogut at the front. He was closely marked by Amare Stoudemire from the Suns. Following a long pass from one of his teammates, Bogut was making his way towards the basket with Stoudemire in pursuit. When the Milwaukee
5: Andranik Karapetyan
The Armenian weightlifter was one of the favorites in his 77-kilogram (or 170 -pound) division for winning the gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He had previously won the European Weightlifting Championship and had received a bronze medal at the 2016 World Championship. However, during his attempt to lift 195 kilograms (or 430 pounds) in the clean and jerk competition, Karapetyan hyperextended his left arm which caused his elbow to pop out of its socket. His trainers and the spectators who had witnessed the injury were horrified
4: David Busst
On April 8, 1996, David Busst suffered one of the worst injuries in soccer history in a match between his team Coventry City and Manchester United. Two minutes into the match, Coventry was awarded a corner. Even though Busst was a defender, he moved forward. After the corner was executed the ball was deflected by United’s goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel. The ball was in the air and Busst was heading towards it when he collided with two Manchester United players, Denis Irwin and Brian McClair. They came at Busst from different directions and crashed into him. The impact caused a compound fracture to the tibia and fibula of Busst’s right leg. He described the event “I knew something serious had
3: Joe Theismann
This is one of the most famous injuries to ever happen in pro sports. Players and fans look back at the Theismann injury as a key moment in the history of the National Football League (or NFL). It took place during a 1985 Monday night game between Theismann’s team, the Washington Redskins, and the New York Giants. The play was a flea-flicker. Theismann handed the ball to teammate John Riggins. After taking a few steps in the Giants’ defense, Riggins flipped the ball back to Theismann. As the 36-year-old quarterback searched for options downfield, Giants linebackers Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson were charging at him from both sides. Theismann
2: Clint Malarchuk
One of the most gruesome injuries in recent sports history was the one sustained by hockey goalie Clint Malarchuk. On March 22, 1989, Malarchuk and his team, the Buffalo Sabers, squared off against the St. Louis Blues in Buffalo, New York. As his teammate Uwe Krupp and St. Louis Blues player Steve Tuttle were fighting for the puck, they both crashed into the goal. There was some contact and after a few seconds Malarchuk took off his goalie mask and started holding his neck. Tuttle’s skate had sliced open his throat. Blood immediately started pouring out of the goalie’s neck as he dropped to his knees covering the wound with his hands. The arena was in shock as blood
1: Ray Chapman
On August 16, 1920, during an MLB (or Major League Baseball) game between the Cleveland Indians and New York Yankees, Ray Chapman was fatally injured. At that time it was common practice for pitchers to ‘dirty up’ a new ball once it was put into play. This meant that they would smear the ball with dirt, licorice and tobacco juice so that it had a more ‘earthly color’ making it harder to see. The ball was also sandpapered, scarred and scuffed on purpose so that its trajectory would be harder to predict. This was suspected as being one of the reasons behind Chapman’s injury and subsequent
