Boxing's ringmaster knows about being windy. Here, Don King extols the virtues of the Foul Pole, Andrew Golota, who had a penchant for throwing low blows and was prepping for a fight against heavyweight titlist John Ruiz on a King card. "We got a doctor to hypnotize Andrew," King said. "Now Andrew thinks the testicles are above the belt. That's where he'll punch." Golota kept it clean, but Ruiz kept his crown, winning a decision.
