Top 10 Most Gruesome sports injuries: #10 Hasim Rahman

[Sportscolumn is running down the ten most gruesome sports injuries. Here’s #10.]

Back in 2003, Evander Holyfield beat on Hasim Rahman until this baseball sized knot developed over his left eye. Of course, in typical Holyfield fashion, the lump wasn’t brought about by a baragae of fists alone; no, Holyfield used a pair of head butts to help create the nasty bump. The fight would eventually be ended on the ring doctor’s recommendation at the 1:40 mark in the eighth round.

After the match, Rahman said that he should have expected the head butts from Holyfield and then he spit out one of the greatest quotes in sports history.

I have a cut in the middle of my forehead, and an extra head on my head.

Well, at least you walked out of the ring with your ears intact.

On to #9
