Bertil Fox was a phenom in the bodybuilding world in the mid- to late 70s and early 80s. Hailed as the next coming of Sergio Oliva, Fox never lived up to the hype.
But he didn't do the hyping.
He just brought the muscle mass! Arms, traps, delts, and chest - all top-notch. His legs and back left a little to be desired, but I think it was Bertil Fox who ushered in sheer mass as we know it today.
He was simply HUGE, especially in his heyday. He might even stand a chance today.
Unfortunately, Fox's life after bodybuilding took a horrible turn for the worse. Convicted of double homicide, he will spend the rest of his life behind bars in a St. Kitts prison cell.
Lots of rumors have circulated about the crimes he committed, but I'll just leave it at this: Bertil Fox was a phenomenal bodybuilder, having brought muscle mass back into the forefront of pro bodybuilding.
If he did commit the murders - and a judge and jury found that he did - then I'm saddened for the fact that two people died at his hands and that his life has been ruined forever.
