Throughout the years, sport has seen a number of truly terrifying competitors who will undoubtedly have given their opponents many sleepless nights.

Whether it's their presence, persona or sheer dominance in their particular fields, such stars have formed truly formidable reputations that are sure to linger long after retirement.
