This year in boxing we have seen upset after upset. It has made boxing entertaining and unpredictable. Fans are actually talking about boxing and are excited about the sport. The war between HBO and Showtime have worked in favor (surprisingly) of the fans. We have 4 more months left in the year and a lot of big fightns left, what match has the chance of being another major upset?

May vs. Canelo
Pac vs. Rios
Arreola vs. Mitchell
Broner vs. Maidana
Matthysee vs. Garcia
Khan vs. Alexander (fight his yet to be signed)
Ruslan vs. Alvarado
Molina vs. Smith
Russell Jr. vs. ????
Bradley vs. Marquez
Rodriguez vs. Cotto

if you have any others that I missed please fill it in.

My pick would be Broner losing to Maidana or Smith upsetting Molina.

IDK whose the underdog in the Arreola-Mitchell fight but I got Arreola beating Mitchell, he just doesn't have enough to be a major player at HW IMO....I'd say Garcia-Matthysse would be one. I saw the poll on Showtime that had 65% saying Matthysse wins. Danny has a great shot to win because he just finds ways to win

Mayweather losing to Canelo would take the cake on anything on this list being that it is the biggest fight of the year, and to be honest, I'd think I'd be more shocked if Mayweather KO's Alverez than it being the other way around, since Canelo is being built as the bigger stronger fighter, and Mayweather hasen't cleanly knocked a guy in 6 years, yet alone a guy at SWW. Don't get me wrong though I know about Mayweather's so called "deceptive power" but rarely is he more capable of taking a guy out (when hurt) as he use to.

Garcia-Matthysse can go both ways as an upset, mainly if it were to end in a KO. I don't think anyone, or atleast anyone I've asked expects this fight to go 12 rounds yet alone being a dull fight. So either one of those two, to me, would be considered an upset. This goes for Broner-Maidana, Bradley-Marquez, Ruslan-Alvarado, and Arreola-Mitchell.

Rios beating PAC in any shape or form is a HUGE upset, I don't give a fuck how u slice it... That's just how I feel. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Mayweather will get beat in the biggest upset this year. Canelo will catch him and stop him.

Hate to say it but if canelo catches him I don't think Floyd is getting up.

Experience plays a major part in that fight and I think Saul will come out and try to knock Mayweather out in the first three rounds and then it will be all downhill for Saul.

I'm still trippin' on why the Mitchell camp took this fight. As much of a blob as Arreola might be, he is one of the LAST fighters with whom I would've put in with "Porcelain Chin".
