    Default Biggest upsets involving British boxers

    1-SSR vs Randy Turpin
    2-Don Curry vs Lloyd Honeyghan

    They are the top 2 IMO but there are lots of others such as Hatton-Koysta,Lewis V Ruddock,Lanning V Duran to name a few.

    Not the biggest of all time but it was hell of a shock for Americans Calzaghe beatdown of Lacy.

    Yes,I think a lot of Brit fans including myself thought Joe would win but not as easy as he did and most yanks thought jeff was going to knock Joe into orbit.

    I think Naz was the favorate in that one mate.

    I think Kelly had a few losses on his record by then.

    Great fight though.

    Naz was heavy odds on.

    If you mean upsets both ways involving British fighters.

    Naz was 4/11 to beat Barrera
    Lacy was 8/13 on to beat Calzaghe
    Tzysu was around 4/7 to beat Hatton.

    Benn vs. McClellan stand out ,I dont know about over there but over here I remember many thinking it was just a formality...Gerald would wreck him.

    Even as a big Benn fan I thought he was going to get KOed in that one.

    The ease with which Honeyghan beat Curry was so surprising to me. Here Curry took apart McCrory to unify the WW division & it seemed like he might be an ATG one day.

    Turpin - Sugar ray, and Honeyghan - Curry ....... I definitely agree. The guys were the undisputed number one fighter on the planet, near their peaks and they got beat fair and square.

    Laing and Duran is up there too, but Duran was slightly past his best and clearly hadn;t even bothered to train!!!

    Bentt - Morrison was another?

    I dont agree about benn - McClellan as Nigel would always have a punchers chance against anyone. It was actually a good fight for him (guy was coming up in weight for the foirst time, fighting at home, Benn was the experienced guy, McClellan hadnlt been tested)

    Good points,thought along the same lines there at the time.Many of the Media slighted & over looked Benn in that one,Pointing to his shaky chin and his previous few fights in which he had boxed more,not shown that bombing style,some fools actually asked if he had lost his power .On a large scale,It was expected that Gerald would go in and destroy him...ala Julian Jackson.I do think McClellan had been tested and pretty legitimized in those two.Especially the first scrap,he was stunned,absorbed some big hits and came back in devastating fashion.People were talking of McClellan as Boxings p4p biggest hitter,riding a huge KO streak.And you know how the Media looooves its undefeated big hitters lol.I think Ferdie Pacheco put it best in hindsight..."McClellan and camp let his reputation go to his head"....and many ate it up.Actually Benn was improving and adding to his game.The best thing Imo that happened to him was getting dropped and hurt early in with a tremendous straight puncher like McClellan......He reverted and had to go back to all out hard shots.In a way,it may of helped deflate The G-Man also.Pne that would not fold.If he had waited and tried to box it out...McClellan may have just cleaned him up in short order.Once McClellan was backed up and pressured with similar big power,Benn had him.
