I picked Harrison to beat Haye. I fell, for his bullsh*t and thought he would really really dig deep and pull this one off.

Motherf***er, i want my money back!

He could have definitely gotten a TKO if he really wanted to. Noticeably laid off the gas in later rounds, kept looking at the ref. He spared Tony...

Ali over Leon Spinks cost me a lot. And the guys picking Neon Leon before the fight were few and far between.

I met Pascal before and broke down Dawsons stylistic deficiencies.

He followed my Blueprint to a t....and Dawson hasn't improved since.

Get tae ****.


Hatton vs Mayweather, sort of fell for the Hatton with Castillo like pressure would wear him down.

Abraham vs Froch, but I'm so annoyed here as I never beleived in Abrahams punching power, thinking it hugely overrated, and didnt expect him to win but I sort of fell for his power and thought he would decapitate Froch.

Katsidas vs Marquez, Thought Katsidas strength and pressure would be too much.

DLH-Pac

I thought even a past prime Oscar fighting at WW for the first time in years would be way too much for Pacquiao, I really thought he was far too big.... of course it didn`t help that he put in the worst shift of his entire career, I never saw that coming either

Pac-DLH, but does that even count? At that stage of the game you had to be a fanboy, a psychic, a genius or have inside info to think that Pac was going to win.

The only one for me from the last few years is Mosley-Margarito. Coming off the Mayorga performance and having been inconsistent over the prior few years, I thought Shane was done, and there was no way that the guy who looked so low on stamina and rough on his feet was going to be able to deal with the volume, pressure and stamina that Margarito brought to the ring.

Whoops. Sure, it was probably the last great fight Shane had in him, and Margarito turned out to be a cheating ****, but whoops!

Going back a ways, I was pretty seriously wrong on Gatti-Robinson. As fast as Robinson was and as active as he was, I didn't know if he could deal with Gatti's power and I certainly didn't think he could hold Gatti off with his punches.

Whoops again.

ODLH - Pac.

I was also wrong about Pac - Hatton. There was no way Pac could outlast the best 140 lber in the world, let alone get his attention with his power. Woops.

I thought Williams would beat Sergio again. Woops.

I thought Mitchell would beat Katsidis. Massive woops.

And I thought James Degale would utterly embarrass George Groves and make him retire on his stall.

Holyfield/Bowe I

I was commuting too London at the time & always caught the 5.40 london/weymouth express home & always gave it the biggun about my vegas travels while necking copius amounts of ale in the buffet & advised all in attendance to put there mortgage on Holyfield spanking Bowe. I heard that my name was being scratched in blood on the buffet car walls after the fight & i never had the balls to show my cringing mug on that train again

Recently that was a big one. Incredibly confident and certain Abraham would crush Froch. For all his limitations, I thought more highly of his ability to be aggressive when it wanted to (Later stages of Dirrell although still losing). Didn't think Froch could just control him a jab and boxing ability. I simplistically cited Froch being hurt in all the recent fights he had and thought AA had to find a way to get in and eventually would. Couldn't have gotten it more wrong. Froch controlled him and AA looked mentally a wreck.
