You made a great point about Baer being a goof and made me re-think it.

douglas' win over tyson, all things considered, may not be as impressive but i think it rates as a bigger upset. NO ONE saw that shit coming, at least schmeling was an ex-champion with pedigree

Nestalgia is great but I don't always by into it. Luis was young and wasn't even champ yet. Tyson was a wrecking machine but like in the build-up to the Lewis Rahman I fight there were plenty of signs that he wasn't taking the fight seriously. It depends on how you define an upset, when someone who is not supposed to win does or when someone who is not expected to win does? IMO if you favour the later definition you'd have to rate Luis-Schmelling below the tyson douglas.

I don't think he was an ex-champ at the time of the first fight was he?
