    British boxer Fes Batista is a little monster.

    While a 19-year-old student in Crewe, Batista, from a Pakistani family, was the victim of a bullying campaign. He wanted to commit suicide and even armed himself with a knife. He said, "I was a victim of racial abuse with people even calling me a terrorist. I used to stay up crying all night. I was so upset that I got a knife and put it to my neck. I also put it on my wrists and thought, ‘I'm going now – I am going to do it."

    By accident, Lady Gaga's "Marry the Night" played on his laptop and it made all the difference.

    "Right away, I realized that I had problems – my 'night' if you like," the fighter, now 23, said. "And, as Lady Gaga suggested in the song, I married my problem and accepted it. That was the starting process."

    See, even a tough boxer loves Lady Gaga.
