Always a good value bet.
I think there's a huge mental disadvantage that no one considers when someone is facing the same guy that KO'd them.
I wouldn't say most; just when it's an upset kayo. (as this was definitely considered, even with Hernandez battling abroad)
For instance, had Chavez stopped Martinez in the 12th he would rightfully be a betting underdog again in the rematch.
