No more an upset than Liston/Clay. You're talking about a guy who beat up a brick and made medicine sick

How about Frazier Ali? Ali was undefeated and seemingly invincible.

I say Ali-Foreman easily

Foreman quickly knocked out the 2 men who beat Ali,so therefore No one didnt even think of givin Ali a chance to win,they said he just wasnt the same fighter he used to be,and Foremans youth and Power would be just way too much for him

No one in hell would have envision Muhammed Ali knocking out George Foreman in the 8th round,and thats what he did,He shocked the world

u dont think Ali's first fight/obliteration of Liston isnt a bigger upset?

Ali-Foreman, Ali-Liston. Both Foreman and Liston were both supposed to moider Ali.

Holyfield-Tyson was also a massive upset, given Holy's highlighted health problems in the years previous and the fact he didn't look so good against Bobby Czyz in the fight leading into it.

Those are the highest profile ones I can think of.
