Vince Taylor ///

The 1983 Mr. Berlin Vince Taylor started off in the light-heavyweight class, but a few weird things happened. He crashed his car - twice - on the way to the venue. He was too late to enter as a light-heavy, but they let him compete as a 170lbs. heavyweight and he ended up winning the whole thing.
