    Bummy Davis going berserk against Fritzie Zivic in their first fight on November 15, 1940. Boxrec description: "Davis was floored in the first round. In round two, Zivic thumbed Davis in the eyes and this caused Bummy to completely lose his temper. He landed at least ten low blows, and was disqualified; then he kicked the referee and attempted to resume the fight with Zivic." Didn't see it, but wish I had!

    Terry Norris trying to clean guys heads off the runway with an uppercut when they were on the floor. Quarry trying to beat Frazier by shattering his basket. A lot of what Saddler did. Johnny Nelson was on the nose at times, Wlad for similar reasons while they weren’t poking eyes and neutralising semen production it helped them win. Anyone remember when Fenech rugby tackled Nelson?

    A narrative I read about Zivic is “reap what you sow” it’s alleged that he’d only start to get dirty if they tried anything on him. I doubt it but I have to ask was Davis known for his rough and tumble work?

    Well, he didn't fight Pro that I know of, but the OP asked for the most rough house tactic in a ring, so....

    Mills Lane shoving Hopkins out of the ring has to rank up there.

    It’s funny, Mikey’s chow down - one of the worst - almost didn’t come to mind. It’s been treated so light heartedly over the years, the legitimately shocking edge to it has been smoothed down.

    Mike has parlayed his initial stake (or ear portion) into big returns, as detailed below. Could you imagine Bowe and Golota going into business together selling crushed nuts? Truth/fact is often stranger than fiction.

    What a shame. Sam was a very, very good man. That damn butler took his kindness for weakness. I know they were roommates but Sam Kellerman was just trying to help him, and look what he did... Geez, max Kellerman bless him, said in an interview how the trauma of losing another brother could only affect him in ways noone knows. Much love to the kellermans.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but dude who fought Pritchard colons (what would be his last fight) was deliberately aiming at the brainstem with rabbit punches. Nowadays colon, the once promising prospect is now in a vegetative state. Him and his poor mom wish they could wake up in 2015 again, the date of the accident.

    The American welterweight, I can't remember his name, has remorse for what he did but nevertheless the intent to injure was there. Since then, the dirty lone survivor out of the two; has had trouble getting fights (blackballed), doesn't feel invincible anymore, not doesn't tell his 3 kids he's a boxer. As much as he was at fault, he prays for Pritchard. Essentially conlons family is suing the alphabet organization for 50 million, the lawsuit, big in junction, is still open/ pending without being been solved.

    "Diggity" colon is now trapped in his body, in a vegetative state, feeding through a breathing tube. Only the love from his mother is sustaining him. This is the reason why Deontay wilder was crying after the Robert helenius fight, for Pritchard.

    Even after he won (I’m assuming), this guy used some pretty roughhouse tactics on himself. Actually getting in and out of the ring is part of ring generalship, right? Could this guy’s score have actually been in the negative even before first bell?
