    (January 5, 1953- )
    Born in Baltimore, Maryland
    Retired professional boxer
    Former light-heavyweight (1982-1983) and cruiser weight world champion (1985-1986)
    Professional record of 41-11-1 with 25 KO victories
    Born Dwight Braxton and nicknamed 'The Camden Buzzsaw'
    Famous for his short stature and determined attack
    He didn't turn pro until he was 25 because he didn't get out of prison until then.
    Like many fighters, he made an unsuccessful comeback years after his initial retirement.
    He showboated and taunted opponents.
    After Michael Spinks boxed him silly in winning the Light-Heavyweight title from him, he called Spinks a 'chicken' for not slugging it out with him.
    Okay, he changed his last name from Braxton to Muhammad Qawi when he became a Muslim, so why didn't he change his first name also?
    At five foot five and a half, he usually had to overcome a significant height disadvantage in his fights and is believed to have been shorter than every opponent he faced.
    He never fought as an amateur, turning professional directly after leaving prison, where he had learned to box.
    He had a very crowd pleasing style, constantly driving forward.
    He had a very good chin, being knocked out only by Evander Holyfield and George Foreman.
    In 2004, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
