1. Tyson Douglas- I didnt see the fight live but I remember coming home from church and rushing to see the news hoping they'd show the still photos of the fight and of course another Tyson victory. Instead I saw bad news. I didnt believe it at first so I watched several different channels hoping to get a different take of the fight.

2. Tyson-Holyfield I & II: First fight seemed so surreal at the time I watched it. The second fight....Self explanatory.

3. Lewis-Rahman I: I was writing a paper (midterm) for a class I skipped earlier that day, and I was watching it casually. When Rahman landed that punch I was shocked.

4. Trinidad-Hopkins: I wasnt on the Tito Express because I've always felt he seemed to much like a limited fighter but there was no way in hell I would have thought Hopkins would stop the train ride. Round in Round out BHop was beating him and it for some reason reminded me of how I felt during Tyson Holyfield I.

5. Roy Jones vs. Tarver II: Even if Jones were to lose there is no way I would have picked him to lose via 1 Punch KO. No way.

6. George Foreman vs. Micheal Moorer: Obvious reasons. Part of me bought that whole old guy trying to win back the title after so many years. I wanted George to win but didnt think given the attitude and commentary at the time that he would win.

7. Barerra vs. Hamed: I thought Prince Naz would take him. I stood corrected.

Fenech vs Nelson 2-I like most Australians expected Fenech to right the wrong of their first fight by taking the result out of the judges hands on home soil by stopping Nelson.Didn't happen that way.

Barrera vs Junior Jones 1-I thought Jones was far too chinny and vulnerable to handle Barrera's power and aggression.

Terry Norris vs Keith Mullings-With Norris's chin something could always go wrong but I didn't expect it against a battler like Mullings.

Kostya Tszyu vs Vince Phillips-If anyone here gave Phillips a chance going in then they sure knew something I didn't.I expected Tszyu to dismantle him easily,but watching it I knew within a few rounds that my prediction was way off.

I was thinking Bernard was going to beat Barry.Looking back on it now, I know better.Bernard didn't fight the right type of competition coming up.That's not to take anything from Barry, but Bernard had nice skills.

And indeed he gave the Clones Cyclone the runaround for a few rounds...

I thought Bronco Billy Wright was going to take Michael Moorer into deep waters and sink him.

By a fluke of fate, it wasn't to be.
