REFEREE MILLS LANE PASSES AWAY AT 85 YEARS OLD

Yes, you read right, you know his face, his stiff movements and he is considered a legend to the sport for refereeing many title fights."Let's Get It On!" was his favorite tagline and he is the referee who disqualified Tyson for biting Holyfield's ear. Lane retired from the sport of boxing in 1998 and was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2013. Believe it or not, Mills started out as a boxer himself while in the Marines. His record was only 10-1 as a pro, but then found his lane by becoming a referee in the sport. Lane also worked as a prosecutor, a district attorney, and a real-life judge! He was 85 years old at the time of his death. Rest in Peace.
