Default Re: Fights in which the 'cannon fodder' upset the prospect

In his pro debut Oleg Maskaev was matched with 21-0 Alex Miroschnichenko, who had been an excellent soviet amateur and was being brought along as a prospect.
Maskaev knocked him out.
Five fights later the 6-0 Maskaev tried his luck against recently dethroned former WBC champion Oliver McCall but thet proved a step too far.

Maskaev has taken the hard road his entire career, that's not the usual story of a title-holder these days.
