The Resume

    (June 16, 1954-May 25, 2014)
    Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Professional boxer and Light-Heavyweight champion from 1979-81
    Professional record 39 - 16 - 3 with 29 KO victories and 8 KO defeats
    Famed for his legendary offense known as the 'Big Matt Attack'
    Also known as Matthew Franklin and his birth name Maxwell Antonio Loach

Why he might be annoying:

    Abandoned as a child, he was raised in a Catholic orphanage by kindly nuns (who named him Matthew Franklin after Saint Matthew and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway where he was found), which he repaid by joining Islam as an adult and becoming very anti Catholic/Christian.
    After losing his title, he went downhill quickly and never even got another title shot.
    Late in his career, he repeatedly attacked another fighter in the ring after losing to him.
    Due to his intense all-offense style of fighting, he burned out at a relatively early age but fought on well past his prime.
    He didn't take a very good punch.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is universally considered one of the all-time great light-heavyweight champions.
    His fights were regularly and correctly referred to as 'all out wars.'
    He had unlimited courage, outstanding endurance, was extremely strong physically, and possessed massive punching power in both hands.
    After his mother died when he was five, he and his older brother were sent to live with their aunt. She was unable to financially support them both and had his brother abandon him along side a set of railroad tracks. Too young to remember anything, he was not reunited with his family until adulthood when his brother stepped forward after their aunt died.
