What are some hugely hyped Superfights that turned into total one sided ass kickings?
The one that jumps to mind is Tyson-Spinks. Two Undefeated heavyweight champions come together. Could have been another Ali-Frazier... 91 seconds later it's over.

I would have to say Foreman vs. Frazier.

Was that super hyped up though? Or was it just another title defense?

Louis vs. Schmeling II. That was one of the most devastating 1 round KOs I've ever seen and the bout was hyped as the fight of the century.

Barrera - Hamed

Supposed to be one of the all-time featherweight battles, instead we got Marco kicking Naseem's ass for 12 dull rounds.:(

Got to be Spinks - Tyson by a mile. Them hype was unbelievable and finally we were going to see a guy that could test Tyson. After 91 seconds of testing Spinks said Mike had passed.

Tyson Vs Spinks. It's got to be the shortest lasting super hyped fight of all time.

Also as I didn't enjoy the ending of Holyfield - Tyson2 and was expecting such a great battle I found that highly disappointing.

Roy Jones vs. James Toney


Roy won every second of the fight, a no-contest.

Sorry this is unrelated to boxing, but Tysonforeman I heard that Ken is gonna lose this week on Jeapody on Wednesday. One similiarity to boxing though, champions usually never go undefeated(Ali,tyson,RJJ,chavez,etc) One exception, Marciano.

Yeah, today might be the day, it's Ken's 75th game. I've got a very bad feeling...

What you said about champions not going undefeated is very true. It's almost impossible to be your best all the time. One little slip or mistake, or just an off night and you're no longer undefeated.

The greatest moment in tysons career- The spinks KO. Everyone thought spinks would challenge him, and mike showed exactly what he was in that era- UNSTOPPABLE.

Joe Louis- Max Schmeling II belongs here as well. The manner in which Louis dispatched Schmeling in a single round remains an incredible sight to this day. Mike Tyson claims that as a teenager he would watch film of the fight over and over, in awe of Joe Louis's punching power and ferocity.

The biggest flopof a super fight was the forth coming, 2nd October 1980. This fight was as big as Ali Vs Foreman but because of the result and the way the fight mapped out people just forget about it. Muhammad Ali was favorite over Larry Holmes by fight time, he looked in terrific shape but it was all for show. Larry Holmes pasted him for 10 one sided rounds.

Trinidad-Hopkins

I would say this one also because it was supposed to be one the greatest middleweight bouts but turned into one of the greatest middleweight performances by Hopkins. I'd say the biggest flop of a big time hyped superfight would be Delahoya/Trinidad. Both fighters didn't exactly live up to the hype that night.

Tyson vs. Spinks for sure. Tyson/Holyfield II was a farce but by then, I expected that nonsense from Tyson. Most Frank Bruno fights too especially the second Tyson fight (obviously Bruno was only a big deal here).

DLH vs Hopkins. I was so pumped for this fight and then I was totally let down. Tito vs. Mayorga made up for it though.

Tyson/Spinks compares to that in how it ended, but doesn't even come close to the amount of hype or importance that was surrounding the rematch between Louis and Schmeling.

Louis/Schmeling II is the easy and most logical pick for this category!

Tyson-Holyfield 2. What a dissapointment. Coulda been a great fight.

I'd say Cooney v Foreman (Cooney takes a real dirt nap in round 2)

And Duran v Hearns (Duran gives Hagler all he could handle and Hearns turns around and nearly decapitates the Panamanian Legend in round 2)

I agree completely. This was a huge fight at the time, what with WW2 goin on and all and the accusations of Schmelling being a nazi.

Was that really supposed to be a big fight? I didn't think it was touted as anything big.

Kimmy

Lewis Vs Holyfield wasn`t a blow out. lewis won but they called it a draw but it wasn`t as one sided as people said. lewis gave allot of those rounds away in that fight!

cooney vs. holmes cooney was supposed to be the great white hope holmes gave him a beating for 13 rnds.

Yeah sure, everyone thought Spinks would challenge Tyson, yet that's why the odds were lopsided in Tyson's favour at 6-1 or 7-1...

"The Experts Say Tyson Is A Cinch" - New York Times, June 27th, 1988.

Read the opening pages of Jose Torres' book on Tyson, and those exact sentiments are expressed there, as well, as none of the "experts" that were present at the final press conferance were giving Spinks any sort of chance in that fight (and back then, either did I).

****, at only a 4-1 underdog, even Trevor Berbick was given a better chance of defeating Tyson than was Spinks.

Calzaghe/Lacy although it was not a mega-fight to some. :(

That was a great fight to watch! I though Lacy would win and got a great surprise when fellow Brit Calzaghe started knocking the **** out of Lacy.

Calzaghe will probably be over confident now and get destroyed in his next fight!

Yeah respect due...he fought a great fight.I really hope Tarver/Calzaghe pops off someday and I will be looking for Tarver to avenge the loss for his fellow Floridian.

One things for sure, Lacy will dominate the division once Calazaghe retires.

You are making me excited about his next fight already.I don't know what to think that was not the Lacy I was used to seeing March 4th and can't wait to see him fight again.

Joe Gans vs Terry McGoven.

This was a fight with 2 SUPER Fighters, and McGoven just walks in and kos Gans in 2 rounds(And droping Gans like 5 times in the process.)

gans took a dive. gans would have slaughtered the smaller mcgovern

Dempsey1238
04-04-2006, 09:58 PM
after seeing the fight complete. I can see Dr Z's point in the fight.

Gans just got caught. a good right hand put Gans down, and he got up. THE PROBLEM lies with the rules of the day, no Netrual Coner rule. McGoven stood over Gans, and wail away on him as soon as Gans got up.

A fighter that takes a dive does not DROP to the canvas 7 times in 2 rounds. and Gans look hurt. Also your forgetting that McGoven was a ALL time puncher.

Dempsey1238
04-04-2006, 10:12 PM
ok I counted the knockdowns. and Gans was floor 9 times.
