Ex-champ Tony Tubbs picks jail over rehab

Former HW champ Tony "TNT" Tubbs picks jail over rehab for cocaine possession charge. A judge gave him the option and he picked jail. He also admits that he was a "cocaine addict first and boxer second... I did several fights while under control of cocaine."

Tubbs was a Muhammad Ali protege but weight, motivation and drug problems always dogged him. He was KOed by Mike Tyson in one of his comeback fights. Also nice to see he's got 16 kids and has been jailed on failure to pay child support in the past.

Damn, he is giving Holyfield a run for his money in the kids department. Seems like a broken record in sports these days.

16 kids is approximately 16 too many.
