9. Rocky withdrew from the fight because of a left hand injury (he punched a tree) although I think he either faked it or did it purposely to avoid fighting LaMotta because he and Jake were good friends.

Very impressive Henry. Although, number 3 was wrong. It was Paul Hodkinson who John Davison stopped in the ABA's to cause the massive upset.

And I guess there's two answers really, but the answer I was looking for was that Monzon never gave a urine sample after his fight with Napoles, causing a lot of debate and controversy.

But the rest were right.

Yes, I also put in Paul "Hoko" Hodkinson after your post. He lost the final to Welsh wizard Floyd Havard but insists he won. He made the semis in 1986 and lost to Paul "Hoko" Hodkinson, the eventual winner, whom he had previously stopped.
