Rubin “The Hurricane” Carter (Boxing)

After fighting professionally for six years at the middleweight level, Rubin “The Hurricane” Carter was arrested and charged with triple homicide, following a bar robbery/homicide in 1966. He and another man were convicted twice for the crime despite lack of hard evidence and inconsistent testimony. After nearly 20 years in prison the former boxer’s case was overturned and he was freed in November 1985. The 1999 film, Hurricane, starring Denzel Washington is based on Rubin’s life.
