Canīt believe it either.

If this happened it probably was some freak accident or Frazier took it too lightly while Monzon took it very serious. Something like that.

You know, Vitali Klitschko knocked out Muhammad Ali in sparring when he was 4. Arthur Abraham said so.

Yep, the show that never lies.

This sounds like nonsense to me.

This is one of those persistant boxing myths that refuses to go away, largely due to it's being continually rehashed.

No...Norman MAILER ko'ed Sonny Liston when he drunkenly wandered into Liston's training camp while Liston was training for the first Ali fight. Mailer insisted on putting on the gloves with Sonny, knocked Liston through the ropes seconds later and the "Bear" injured his shoulder in the fall. That's what led to his surrender in Miami...it's true!!!!
