    Default Fights in which you KNEW the underdog would win.

    Hopkins over Pavlik. I remember the entire Pavlik camp being all cocky and overconfident, claiming they were going to knock Hopkins out, which was mind-boggling itself (Have they even watched BHop fight before?). Of course Bernard proceeded to teach that kid a boxing lesson. It wasn't even that hard of a fight for him.

    Mayweather over Genaro Hernandez

    Chris Byrd over Evander Holyfield

    Wlad over Sam Peter I (easy looking back on it but at the time EVERYONE thought Peter was going to win)
    Wright over Mosley
    Thompson over Solis I (Tony wasn't the underdog in the rematch)

    ....not sure what other ones I've called....Cotto over Abdullaev which was a rematch of an amateur bout that Cotto lost.

    Calzaghe/Lacy. Everyone now says Lacy was shit, but they were all picking him. Calzaghe was always a league above a face first brawler. Boxing experts are a bit like leading economists. They have the loudest voices, but the rich are richer because they work for the machine.

    I picked Margarito to beat Cotto, Hopkins to beat Tito, Cook to beat Arthur and on a much smaller scale I remember people were raving about Bradley Pryce getting a world title shot and I told my friends Matthew Hall would destroy him and knock him out.

    I'm sure everyone on here had Williams as favourite over Winky. I also thought he'd beat Margarito.

    I'm proud to say I always said Lacy was shit. If people would look past his muscles to watch the action they would have known that too. People can't see past the "talent" to see the fighter.

    This was no major upset though even to the bookees. Lacy was a very slight favorite.

    I won big on Holyfield over Tyson, that was my biggest win for years. Tyson was another guy people could never see for what he really was, Pacquiao too. When folks start to realize greatness comes from the mind not from athleticism it will become hard to fleece them.

    Wright v Shane as he had beaten up all our brush fighters with ease and Mosely was just too small to beat Wright.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    A lot of these fights mentioned weren't really shocking underdog upsets.

    Barrera was around a 4/1 dog against Naz and Morales - first time - but plenty fancied him.

    I backed Prescott to chin Khan at 125/1. Pure luck with hindsight. Yeah...
