Default just how HISTORIC was GARTH WOODS KO OF MUNDINE?

kahu mahunga did it to his dad...against the odds. it rates as one of australias biggest upsets. tony was a well liked boxer in oz. unlike his son. so there was little cheering when tony got kod.

however, when choc got kod properly by woods, the whole country rejoiced. it was a popular win against the odds. where does it stand historically as an upset in oz boxing history?

Right up there. It's the biggest upset of the last 10 years in Australian boxing.

The look on his face was priceless.

Garth Wood's KO win over Anthony Mundine was the biggest upset in an Australian bout for decades. It was also hugely popular. The media had a field day and seemed to turn on Mundine whom they had previously doted on.

Jeff was Geale's first trainer

Gealey was training at my gym the a few weeks before he left for sydney to start his pro career and he told us Jeff would be training him. The deal sealer was a free watch

The Ottke Ko was a joke, The ref was standing over him counting and counted the full 10, it was obvious as soon as he hit the ground he was out cold and wasn't getting up, There was no regard for Chocs well being at all,

Perhaps he couldn't believe Ottke had actually knocked someone out

Poor Jeff it took him a long time but he finally got a win. As for the Woods KO massive upset what were the odds against him? Must of paid at least 10-1 in a 2 horse race.
