    I'm guessing Rungvisai was huge underdog in first fight with chocalitito.

    RUNGVISAI VS GONZALEZ BETTING ODDS
    Here are the winner odds from online sportsbook 5dimes.eu
    Srisaket Sor Rungvisai +270
    Roman Gonzalez -390

    Idk what that means, embarrassingly.
    One I'm not sure about the odds for, but know it was a big upset with strange circumstances was Azumah Nelson vs Jeff Fenech 2.

    You would have thought Fenech would be underdog because he was moving up in weight

    You ever see the first fight? Tells me why Nelson was a massive underdog.

    Makes no difference imo, he lost the first fight like 9-3 from most people. It's awesome that he won the rematch given that one.

    Evander Holyfield opened as a 25-1 underdog on the Las Vegas odds against Mike Tyson in their first fight but so many fans (and non fans) rushed to put their money on Holyfield that by fight time the odds had amazingly dropped to only 5-1 for an Holyfield win. The bookies all took a big loss on that fight.
