A little perspective in over a 100 years of Boxing............

45/1 DOUGLAS      ko 10   Tyson
14/1 RAHMAN       ko  5    Lewis
10/1 SCHMELLING  ko12    Louis
10/1 BRADDOCK    W15     Baer
7/1  CLAY              ko6     Liston
8/1  SPINKS          W15    Ali
6/1  SANDERS        ko2    Wlad
6/1  ALI                ko8     Foreman
6/1  SPINKS          W15    Holmes
4/1 TUNNEY          W10    Dempsey
4/1 CORBETT         ko21   O'Sullivan
---------------------------------------------------

I make that 11 in a hundred years of Boxing where the title meant something like it does on Saturday....6/11 were committed by HOFers...

Believe it or not Foreman was only 2-1 against when he fought Moorer !!...

Some that come close........

3/1   BERBICK       W12   Thomas
12/5 WALCOTT       ko7   Charles
12/5 JOHNSON      ko15   Jeffries
2/1   FITZ             ko14  Corbett
2/1   SCHMELLING W15   Sharkey

Sanders fight was for WBO belt - don't think that belongs here. Lewis was still the champion.

I've added Schmelling v Louis which was non title which doesn't really belong there either...

Louis was all but champ then though so I chucked it in....

Think Lewis was 1-20 but Rahman was 14-1 (just to go all Hammersmith Harrier on you).

Klitschko was something like a 3/1 underdog when he beat Sam Peters for the title.

What were the odds when Moorer dethroned Holyfield? Not far off 4-1 I bet?
