Always though big Frank stood a good chance over Tyson.

First of all, I never come out like these ****s on the General making a huge long winded thread about why some fighter will "DEFINITELY!!!" win a fight. They are idiots, anything can happen in this game, there are no garuntee's. It's funny though because they usually get it wrong and aren't anywhere to be seen for about 2 weeks. lol.


...That being said, I thought Barrera had a chance in the Pacquiao rematch.

I thought more recently when Carl Johannsen fought Leva Kirakosyan...

After the very heavy concusive KO in their first fight, he might have took a different fight strategy...

I thought Carl might have tried to box him and not get involved trying to take him into the second half of the fight to see what he might have had in his locker in the Championship Rounds...

How wrong was I...

Tyson vs Lewis.

With Hatton, the hype was incredible - I haven't anticipated a fight as much as the one against Mayweather - but I never thought he would win against either Floyd or Pac, although I obviously thought he had an outside chance.

Mine is Morales vs Pac III, i just thought Erik would go back to fighting behind his jab and not trade with manny like he did in the second fight and would get another lopsided decision, how wrong i was lol.

I got Pac - Hatton and Margarito - Mosley badly wrong...

....but it's fights like those two which show how difficult it is to predict a fight. I don't think anybody predicted those outcomes. (Even Roach admitted just before the fight that his Pacquiao KO3 was a mind game and he expected a late stoppage)

Thanks, everyone - I've enjoyed reading the replies. I also picked Margo over Mosley and, although I did pick Pac to win a late TKO, I can fully understand why people picked Cotto to win the Pacquiao fight. I honestly felt Margo was going to end Sugar's career last January (especially after how poor he looked against Mayorga) and I couldn't believe what I witnessed immediately after the fight; that's the kind of shit that makes this sport so God damn awesome.

When I picked Margo to beat Mosley, it wasn't my heart ruling my head - I mean I liked Margo back then, but it wasn't due to this as to why I picked him, I just thought Mosley was past it.

Yes, this thread has digressed slightly. It's sort of turned into 'bad picks' now. Can't complain, though. From the feedback in this thread, it looks looks like Hatton fights are the major culprits in making people abandon sound knowledge for hype.

I've got to hold my hand up for Khan-Barrera too.
I knew Amir was bigger, faster, younger, fresher, etc. But I thought Barrera at some point would be able to land just that one punch....
