A poll and discussion on some upsets you would have never ever expected to happen and still found it hard to believe when it did.

Jones Vs. Tarver II
Jones had an excuse for the first fight that he barely pulled out by the skin of his teeth. Some argue he took the second fight too soon but it didn't appear that way in the first round. Then comes the second round and BOOM!!! Its all over and we have the birth of the Sea Lion Bubble Gum Lip Antonio Tarver

Mosley vs. Margarito
I personally picked Shane to outbox Margarito and got laughed at for it. He not only outboxed him but completely knocked his block off. You can argue Margarito wasn't focused after the gloves incident and the draining of the extra two pounds but the majority of boxing experts and fans pretty much had it written in stone that Margarito was going to be the first to stop Shane. Well we all know that outcome.

Judah vs. Tsyzu
You Aussies probably wouldn't consider it an upset because you more than likely expected it but to the general public and most american boxing fans it was a complete shocker. The first round was all Judah and the second round Judah started the wave of all these young kids and their funky dance moves. I still believe had his ego and pride not jumped in the way and he took his 8 seconds getting up there might have been a different outcome *shrugs*

Khan vs. Prescott
The prideful olympian vs. a no name. What happen? Khan was smoked in the first round. Prescott has done everything in his might to try to get a rematch since Khans stardom but his previous loss doesn't help his cause.

Ali vs. Foreman
Nobody in their right mind gave Ali a shot in this fight. Hell he had to psych his self up just for the fight but man did he have the perfect gameplan. No one seen this coming especially with it being by KO. Foreman had every phsycial advantage over Ali including age. They one thing he lacked which eventually cost him the fight was the mental edge and wits to be Ali.

Foreman vs. Moorer
Ha! I still laugh at this. Moorer was suppose to box circles around Foreman and prevent this man from becoming the then oldest champion in history. They last thing to go in every fighter is his power and welp....Moorer learned that the hard way.

Rahman vs. Lewis
This right here folks is why you dont take no one in combat sports lightly. You think your about to go in there and make easy money and then boom that straight right hand lands flush over that left thats hanging by the side a long with you not stepping out far enough. Granite Lewis did get revenge in the rematch but it still doesn't take away from the fact he was dropped cold by a nobody. I'll never forget the "mama you dont have to work no more" rant by Rahman.
