Top 10 most intimidating

The dog must be approachable, quietly standing its ground and showing confidence and willingness to meet overtures without itself making them.

It is poised, but when the occasion demands, eager and alert; both fit and willing to serve in its capacity as a companion and watchdog.

Bolstered by his scowling visage, this intimidating reputation no doubt had much to do with “The Manassa Mauler” racking up an astonishing 60 first round knockouts (including exhibition matches). Roberto Duran: “Manos de Piedra,” or Hands of Stone, gave off such an unmistakable aura of ferocity and violence that it unnerved even the most talented of boxers.

Sporting a sneer of contempt, and black eyes that could bore holes into people’s heads, he compiled no fewer than 21 first round knockouts, a tribute, at least in part, to his image as a savage maniac bent on destruction. Sonny Liston: An ex-con, a rumoured leg-breaker for the mob-controlled unions, an associate of Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo, Liston had intimidation down to a science.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control, the Doberman Pinscher is less frequently involved in attacks on humans resulting in fatalities than several other dog breeds such as pit bulls, because they can be trained to restrain an unwelcome intruder but not kill him. However, any poorly trained dog can become a danger in the wrong circumstances.

The Rottweiler is a steady dog with a self-assured nature, but early socialization and exposure to as many new people, animals, and situations as possible are very important in developing these qualities.

Doberman Pinschers are, in general, a gentle, loyal, loving, and highly intelligent breed.

Although there is variation in temperament, a typical pet Doberman attacks only if it believes that it, its property, or its family are in danger. Marines in World War II, and 25 Marine War Dogs died in the Battle of Guam in 1944: there is a memorial in Guam in honor of these Doberman Pinschers In the hands of a responsible owner, a well-trained and socialized Rottweiler can be a reliable, alert dog and a loving companion.

Here are the 10 most intimidating fighters active in the sport today. Personality is one factor, though rap sheets out of the cage are not as important as your appearance.

Every fighter tries to intimidate their opponent, but these are the men who developed it into an art form, causing foes to either lose all confidence before the opening bell, and thus the fight, or to avoid facing them altogether. Iran Barkley: A former street gang member, Barkley’s face was a dark visage of total menace. Thomas Hearns: First the incredibly tall (for a welterweight) “Motor City Cobra” would look down and fix you with that intense stare of his. A tall, long-armed sharp-shooter, Foster’s wicked left hook and icy stare caused many a champion and contender to take a pass. Stanley Ketchel: A true destroyer of the ring, “The Michigan Assassin” brought a cold-eyed glare, a contemptuous sneer, and one of the hardest right hands in boxing history into the ring, and when facing the total package, his opponents felt more than a bit weak in the knees. Marvelous Marvin Hagler: With his shaved head and perpetual snarl, Hagler struck fear in the hearts of men, making it that much easier for him to run them out of the ring. For years, top contenders and champions in the middleweight division did everything they could to avoid facing the Marvelous One. Joe Louis: “The Brown Bomber” didn’t have to work too hard at intimidating people; his record and reputation accomplished that all by themselves.

Prior to the opening bell, “The Blade” would pace and prowl, eager for combat, before fixing his opponent with a stare that could freeze water. Carlos Monzon: A true macho man, this Argentinian brawler brought to bear the attitude of both a genuine street tough and a champion of unshakable confidence. As Tyson himself put it: “I always loved Carlos Monzón. Then he’d show you his right fist, the same fist that cold-cocked a long list of tough champions including Roberto Duran and Pipino Cuevas. Bob Foster: It took eight long years before Foster got a shot at the light-heavyweight title. One of the most fearsome punchers in boxing history, Louis left a path of destruction that unnerved all the heavyweights of his day.

He wanted to grab the attention of the world with his flamboyant, outlandish hairstyle.

That´s why he sported hideous stumpy bright green dreads when he represented his nation, Nigeria, in the 19 World Cup.
