Arrow Which fighter has cost you the most money??? (Gambling)

It's gotta be Floyd. I lost my entire ass on the Zab robbery.



Cotto is second. He got me good on the Zab fight, and definitely with the Clottey fight. Then the only time I bet on him, he gets kung-fooed to death by Pac? I was like "You gotta be kidding me" Only reason he isn't first is because I put a grip on Margarito in that first fight.



Then there's Pac. I got straight hosed on the Oscar, Cotto and Clottey fights... and the only time I bet on him was the Bradley fight! I did win on the JMM3 and Margarito fight, though.


Other notable gambling losses:
Margarito-Shane
PW-Quintana 1
Josesito-Ortiz


C'mon. I know I can't be the only one in here who has made some dumb-ass bets, or lost money on upsets....

Lol, to be honest.. only time I ever bet on a fight was on the Trinidad/Jones fight.. I was young, about 16.. and thought Trinidad had enough in him to pull an upset since Jones was getting KO'd left and right.

I had two terrible ones and two immediate turn-arounds. Cotto / Mosley...that was a good fight, but painful pill to swallow. I'm kind if ashamed of the 2nd one...but I actually bet on Dawson to beat Ward. Ugh.


Turnarounds? PWill / Martinez II and Pac / Cotto for sure.

I guess I can't really say ****, though. After I lost on Zab-Floyd, Zab-Cotto, and Zab-Clottey, I stuck with him and got SUPER paid on the Vernon Paris and Matthysse fight. I wasn't touching the Khan or Garcia fights, luckily.

I've only bet real money once or twice. I might do it more often because I have good luck with vcash and have had good picks lately.

I think I bet a fiver on David Haye via decision over Chisora or something, that's all I can remember losing I think

Zab won Rounds 1-6 with a KD. Floyd edged out Rounds 7-12. 114-113.


That's my story, I'm sticking to it.

I haven't been able to bet on boxing yet but if I could it would probably be Miguel Cotto.

Thought Mosley would beat him
Thought he would beat Margarito

That's the first one that comes to mind.


Would have lost BIG on

Mosley vs Margarito
Pascal vs Dawson

PW and Margarito kept me in the black back in those days.
Then Ward really kept me paid.

Lately I've been rolling with Rigo, Broner, Lara, and Froch.

I might go ahead and put something on Floyd, since the odds make a little better sense on this fight.

I'm definitely gonna put Zab-Floyd type money on Arreola against Mitchell.

I made money from the Paris fight. It took some thinking, but I was confident and went big on him.
I put a little money on him in the Khan fight, but he disappointed me so much, I almost just threw him out for good


oh and Chisora is a good one. I was wrong on Chisora/Fury, Chisora/Helenius (well technically got it right), Chisora/Scott and Chisora/Haye

Zab owe a lotta cats money. He had all of Brooklyn amped for the Floyd fight.


And Chisora? I knew he would lose to Haye, but thought he would clip Fury. I lost money on him against Vitali because I thought he would get stopped.


Adamek is another mothafcuka that deserves mention. Chambers and Cunningham fights cost me.... Then I bet on him getting stopped in under 6 against Vitali's ***git ass who carried him an extra 8 rounds!
