I dont think so. Folks dont look at him as unbeatable and some folks are actually picking Ortiz to win.

I think Tarver over Jones would be bigger than that.

Sports. Biggest. Upset. Ever. Ask allmenjoi.

I like Tennis too. Pete Sampars is my favorite. I remember when he beat Venus and Serena at the same time at Wimpleton. It was so cool. Got it on VHS. Watch it every day except Sunday, 'cause that's the Sabbatical and I don't do anything then except eat hamburglars and spend time with my pet alligators, who are cannabilistical by nature. (But that's neither here nor there.)

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*


Yeah Tszyu KO3 & Stevenski about $6K richer.

Not the biggest upset but Morales being outclassed by Raheem was a shock to me. He OWNED Pac in the first fight & then lost to little better than a fringe contender in Raheem?

Ha! Quality!

I voted for Lewis v Rahman, purely because I can remember watching that unfold and not quite believing what had happened. Lewis got well and truly iced.

What about Pacquiao-Barrera and Pacquiao-DLH?

Maybe Pac/Barrera (I was somewhat shocked) because Barrera was one of the first big name victims on Pac's list, but Pac/De La Hoya...not at all. Oscar was dead when he signed the contract.

I know this is pretty far under the radar, but how about JC Candelo being upset by Eduardo Sanchez. On paper, it doesn't sound that bad. However, Candelo was supposed to fight somebody else. Candelo had been on a roll the year before this, until he ran into a prime Kassim Ouma as well. The opponent was Joachim Alcine, but he pulled out the day of the weigh in because of a failed medical exam. Sanchez took that fight on 24 hours notice, and had to lose 10-15 pounds in a couple hours. He took the fight, with little or no training, and he put it on Candelo for 12 rounds. That fight was such a huge upset to me since Sanchez wasn't that solid of a fighter. Candelo was a seasoned pro, who had trained for 12 rounds. That fight really sticks out to me.

Believe it or not I was picking Randall that fight, ONLY because I read this convincing article about him right before the fight. He definitely got his shit together and was very confident. But it was still a big upset cause so many gave Frankie no shot. I still remember that straight right that floored Chavez.
