DragonKing Dark: A look at the 'Assault in the Ring'

Two people were charged with assault for being in a professionally sanctioned boxing match, but how?

On this week's DragonKing Dark, I discuss the seedy story of Luis Resto and Billy Collins, Jr. Resto and his manager conspired not only to remove padding from his gloves, but also to wear casts underneath.

Collins never fought again and ended up dead less than a year later and Resto's life was destroyed. But, what about the manager who helped him?

As part of my look at the 100 darkest moments in pop culture history, this is their story which was documented in the award-winning 2008 documentary Assault in the Ring from HBO Sports.
