Default What fights won/lost you the most money?

Boxing is the only sport i still wager on occassionally. Outside of British fighters, Bernard Hopkins has won me the most moolah over the years. The fights that won me the most are Barrera vs. Naz. Hopkins vs. Pavlik and Tyson vs. Danny Williams. I picked Barrera and Hopkins to win. So seeing the odds were so big against the underdogs in those fights, i just couldn't resist and put quite a bit on them and won big.

What fights and fighters have won or lost you the most in bets over the years?

Also, i'm sure we all get a feeling for who's ganna win a fight, but never get round to putting something on. So what fights were you kicking yourself afterwards for not wagering on?

Small potatoes but I had fifty quid on Burns to beat Martinez at 5/1 so in terms of most money for least outlay,that'd be the winner but I've bet more on shorter odds.
JMM turned 35 into 130-odds for me last week.

I put a few quid on Bradley to beat Pac on points but when I returned to Hills later they said my bet hadn't been placed! Sick about that one.
Also bet on Margarito for straight win over Cotto but kicked myself for not betting on late stoppage.

I thought Bradley would beat Pacquiao, i was actually all over that one and how he was going to do it, lol. But i couldn't bring myself to bet on that fight. Watching the fight all i could think was, i'm glad i didn't bet on this. When the scores where announced, my goodness. Couldn't believe it.

Built up a lot by betting on pretty much certs 2006-early 2012 so don't really count those,

Put 250 on Froch for Bute, 750 winnings, 150 on Marquez 410 winnings the bigger recent bets, kinda gutted I didn't put a little money on Senchenko as I had an awful feeling about it and Garcia to KO khan

I had Hopkins over Tito at 3.5/1 and put too much down by accident. I ended up paying my rent and having a great time watching the ass whipping, but was pretty damn nervous heading up to the fight.

Won a ton of money on Jones Jr/Toney. Probably, the last time Jones was the underdog.
