Default Boxer who had infamous tempers?

Can you name a few? I believe Jake LaMotta was a real hot head, as was Duran and Monzon.

I'll have to add Joe Frazier.

I remember him jumping Ali during a Cosell interview. They wrestled around on the floor.
It may have been staged, but I don't think so.

By all accounts he went into the Manila fight in a rage.

I think that it was only Ali who brought out that side of Frazier.

Sonny Liston was known for having quite a short fuse at times.

Pick your Irish battler:

John L.
Ike Weir (always got into street scraps)
Tom Sharkey(caused riots [see vs. Maher and other events])
Terry McGovern (remember the pre-fight trick Young Corbett used to beat him?)
Billy Conn
