One of the big complaints with boxing in this day and age is the lack of "characters" involved in the sport. As a result of this we have decided to look at one of the most colourful characters of the last 20 years, legendary trainer Norman "Stoney" Stone.

Stone was the long term trainer of former 2-time Heavyweight champion John "The Quiet Man" Ruiz and more often than not Stoney made up for the lack of colour shown by his rather "boring" and bland charge. In fact Stoney's rants were often the most entertaining part of fights involving Ruiz. With what seems like tourettes Stoney's foul mouthed rants at his own fighter, the referee and anyone else willing to listen have made him a bit of legendary figure on boxing forums.

Stone seems like the type of person who could easily start a fight in an empty room but yet something about him is just fun to listen to.
