I picked Tyson to beat Lennox. I know I'm not alone here.

I picked Liston in both fights to win and I was just a tad older than you at that time. I also picked Tyson to destroy Douglas---------got that wrong too. I also liked Duran over Leonard in their second fight.

That's the only 4 I've ever been wrong on!!

I've had some shockers, past and recent!

I picked Tyson to Beat Holyfield fight no1

Lacy to beat Calzaghe.

De La Hoya to beat Pac...(although I soon changed my mind when I knew about the weight stipulations)

Harrison to beat Haye :( ( what was I smoking?)

Am putting my neck on the line by predicting Chisora to beat Haye Lool!

I figured Julio would do one over Whitaker, for sure. I was really convinced about it. I thought Julio would chop him up into neat little pieces in 10 rounds. That fight actually made me a Whitaker fan.

Oh, and I thought Ruddock would blow Lewis into next week. Got that one wrong in a big way.

Also, I figured Hearns was too shopworn to beat Leonard in '89 and later, I still hadn't learned my lesson and I thought Hill would embarras him. Sorry Tommy.

Of course, I picked Hagler to beat Leonard easily in '87 as well. I thought it was a mismatch to be honest.

My biggest most recent blunders:

Dawson/Hopkins I-Hopkins decision

Froch/Bute-Bute decision

I usually pick HWs very well, actually one of the few who had Evander beating Tyson.

However, I picked Holyfield over Lewis in the first match. Wasn't sold on Lewis at all. That was a big blunder.

I'm a little 'old school'

Mac Foster over Jerry Quarry (1970),,,,,,,,I thought Jerry would be lucky to last 5 Rounds.

Jerry Quarry over Muhammad Ali (1970),,,,,,,,,,I thought Jerry would wear down a comebacking Ali, and stop him in 7 or 8 Rounds.

George Chuvalo over Buster Mathis (1969),,,,,,,,I thought George would just bust the 'soft-muscled' Buster in half with a body barrage.
It never happened.

It seemed money in the bank, really. Then Pac came out with side-to-side movement, slipping the jab easy, hurting Oscar with every bodyshot. Not often seen anything like it.
Me to, I thought it was ridiculous I even said on here at the time "what if he does beat him, how would he cope with the likes of Cotto and Margarito at welter". How wrong can you be!
