    Default 50-50 fights which turned out to be one sided beat downs

    The other thread on underdogs got me thinking about this.

    Off the top of my head...

    Froch - Bute
    Calzaghe - Lacy
    Haye - Enzo (a bit of a reach this one maybe - was Haye favourite?)
    Khan - Alexander

    It's hard to think of many. Pacquiao - ODLH could be on there for the beatdown element, but it wasn't a 50-50 fight. Oscar was a big favourite.

    Cotto Martinez although again Martinez was the favourite by a fair amount

    I would say the standard was Chavez/Rosario.

    Really? Surprised at that as I thought JC was always favourite.

    Callum Smith v Rocky Fielding was one of the latest.

    No; Rosario was only a year or so past the Camacho fight and blitzing Bramble; he was considered a beast. Chavez was moving up in weight and had looked anything but a superstar in the LaPorte and Lockridge fights; I think Rosario was the slight favourite going in, many thinking Chavez was too small and maybe overhyped.

    That fight Chavez was indestructible. remember Tyson was supporting Rosario as he trained with him sitting and screaming at ringside.

    The scary thing was Rosario's very young son had to sit through the entire fight from ringside as well!

    Some books had Mayweather/Corrales as even money.

    The only Tyson fight of that period that was close was Tyson/Berbick; it was a pick'em up to fight week, but the last week a lot of money went on Tyson and he started a warm favourite at around 1/3.

    Tyson destroyed both with ease. Amazing with hindsight.

    Tapia v Romero. Really never saw this as 50/50 myself but great big push and hometown roots. Not a beat down but Tapia on top of it from jump! Nelson v Fenech 2..what a train wreck. Zamora v Zarate ? Norris v Leonard. Man that wasn't even 50-50 for Norris...still don't understand that.

    Ironically - although about 8 years older if Joshua after Martin now went and took out Wilder in 1 or 2 rounds (possible given if they fought it would be a bomb fest I'm sure) and then outpointed Fury he would have done what Tyson did virtually with the KO 2 Berbick KO 1 Spinks UD 12 Tucker

    And given how hyped joshua is at the moment the brits would believe he really was the next Tyson

    TBF he could be amazing we jusr don't know yet
