I always heard that Graziano didnt believe LaMotta would fight him and when he found out LaMotta was serious he punched a tree, breaking his hand on purpose to get out of the fight.

About ten or twenty years ago they did an article in Ring Magazine where they asked three experts who would win this matchup and they all chose LaMotta.

In a documentary Teddy Atlas was asked about this matchup and said "LaMotta would have eaten him up like a little piece of candy."

Punchin a tree!!?..Seems a little extreme just to get out of a fight...But I do agree with Teddy..
