Clifford Etienne, Attempted Murder, Robbery, etc., 2005
The boxing career of Clifford Etienne began in prison, so it’s only proper that it would end there too. The Louisiana-born pugilist started studying the sweet science in prison on a 40-year armed robbery stint, but his performance on the prison boxing team and good behavior earned him early release. He turned pro soon after and was named the “Most Exciting Fighter To Watch” in 2000 by "The Ring" magazine.
His career looked good until a 2003 fight with Mike Tyson, who knocked Etienne out in just 43 seconds. After his last pro fight in 2005, Etienne got totally wrecked on cocaine in Baton Rouge, carjacked a family’s vehicle, robbed a check-cashing business and tried to shoot two policemen. He got 150 years in prison for that little night out.
