I would have to put Duran at the top of that list...but there are a few more with nasty tempers...Liston...Tyson..sometimes Zab Judah would clown..

It may have been staged, but I don't think so.

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

Actually Ali started that little scuffle by gettin under Joes skin with who was hurt more in the first fight, Smoke or Ali...Joe stood up and all they did was wrestle around...Ali was just playin but Joe was dead serious..and yes in a fit of rage. He really wanted to kill Ali

Odd that Monzon's temper was only a problem outside the ropes.

I think McGovern was borderline insane.

Sugar Ray Robinson

according to his wife he wasn't too hard to make angry

according to his son SRR threw a combo at his wife

while many elite boxers have hit their wives before I think throwing a combo is a little too extreme

Another 1 not mentioned is Pazienza. Duva said he spent all of his time trying to calm the guy down.

I found a clip of it.
It took about 20 men to separate them.
