Multiple affairs. Unpaid child support. Fixed fights. Cocaine. Murder.

This will be one of the the wildest boxing stories you'll ever hear.

This is the story of Mark Gastineau, a former NFL superstar who in a financial predicament, turns to professional boxing in a get-rich-quick scheme to work his way to a 12-0 professional record for a million dollar fight against George Foreman. However, in boxing, like life, little actually goes to plan.

In Part 1, we explore Mark Gastineau's background in the NFL and his relationships, and explore the choices he made that forced him to get into a boxing ring and try to be a professional.
