Heavy D! was
once a famous professional boxer, but was expelled from competition due to
seriously injuring a fighter during battle. Heavy D! kept his form fighting on the streets. One day he received
an invitation to the '94 tournament. He teamed up with his friends Lucky Glauber
and Brian Battler to form the American Sports Team. Even though they failed in the tournament, Heavy D! wanted to try again the following year. Unfortunately, Brian's football team went to the Superbowl so they couldn't participate in KOF. Like his
teammates, Heavy D!'s invitation is unluckily snatched by opposing teams in
this series and other games as a running gag.
