Fraser Scott was a Middleweight contender of the late 1960's, who achieved a high rating with a cut-induced stoppage of former Light Middleweight champion Denny Moyer. Scott then unsuccesfully challenged Nino Benvenuti for the World Middleweight title, when he was disqualified in the 7th round in controversial fashion. Scott, who claimed he was fighting out of a crouch, had been accused of headbutting by the Italian referee. As was sometimes the case with American fighters, fighting in Europe, this was caused in part by differences in styles in Europe and America, with American fighters getting punished in some cases for fighting out of a crouch by foreign referees.
Scott also penned an autobiographical book about his boxing career entitled; Weighing In: The Selling of a Middleweight, which was published in 1974.
