Number Three: Shark feeding frenzy

A videographer who prefers to make his living at sea, shared his videotape of an amazing encounter with one of the world's most feared predators.

Alex Werjefelt is no stranger to danger. He willingly came face to face with it, while filming this feeding frenzy, about ten miles off of Kahuku.

He captured compelling footage of tiger sharks, attacking the carcass of a giant sperm whale.


Number Two: Big fight

"We're going to tire him in the first round," said Vai Sikahema.  "And in the second or third round, his arm's gonna get loopy and that's what's gonna happen second or third round, he's gonna go down and we're gonna finish him."

They're both former professional athletes. One was an NFL Pro Bowler, the other a big league baseball player.

Last weekend, Jose Canseco and Vai Sikahema clashed in the boxing ring.

At first glance, the boxing matchup didn't look good for Vai. His opponent is seven inches taller and 50 pounds heavier.

But Vai knocked out Canseco in the first round.
