    (February 2, 1941-November 26, 2011)
    Born in Dayton, Ohio
    Heavyweight boxer with a record of 43-7-1
    Raised in Denver, Colorado
    Known for his brawling, aggressive fighting style and thunderous punching power
    Began boxing in prison
    He killed two men, including his own trainer.
    He had poor endurance.
    During his fight with Jerry Quarry, announcer Howard Cosell ridiculously went on and on about what a great counter-puncher the crude brawler Lyle was while Quarry was counter-punching him silly.
    He usually did poorly against good boxers like Ali, Quarry, or Jimmy Young.
    He usually did well against other brawlers like Earnie Shavers or Oscar Bonavena.
    His war with George Foreman was one of the most exciting fights in ring history.
    He was giving Muhammad Ali hell in their fight and was actually ahead on the scorecards before Ali came back won by a questionable tko.
    He was polite and humble during interviews.
