Interesting things that happened in the ring that are not too well known? For example:

When Nino Benvenuti kicked the towel his corner had thrown in out of the ring and attempted to keep fighting Monzon in their second bout.

Carmen Basilio having to be restrained by police after pushing and shouting the ref after the referee stopped one of his bouts with Gene Fullmer in what seemed premature.

The soft spot in the ring for the No Mas fight which Leonard kept stumbling on.

Duran sitting on Davey Moore's stool at the end of round 7. :lol1: Don't try and tell me that was an accident!

I think the only boxing anecdote I can think of is Arturo Godoy still trying to fight Louis after being beaten to a pulp and the fight had been stopped.

About as accidental as the thumb in the eye that Moore got in the first round.
