The former heavyweight champion of the world turned out to be a bit of a lightweight when it came to money matters.

The boxer owed $38.4 million (£19.57 million) to a series of creditors, the US's Inland Revenue and ex-wife Monica in 2004. Tyson's pet tigers accounted for £4,000 of his debt - part of a lifestyle that cost £200,000 a month.
