oscar was expected to detonate pacquiao with the hook. manny was a huge dog. huge. probaly 4-7 to one.

he wasn't really even manny pacquiao yet
he was a beastly FW moving up who looked a little off against david diazo

there was honestly talk that his hard career and style was catching up to him and that he may be done, facing bigger men with a style unfit for it with power that we couldn't say for certain would carry (and wasn't expected to in anywhere near the capacity it has, even though manny is an ATG puncher at FW)

tito was a 3 to 1 fav against hopkins and was expected by most to win
hopkins run was made legitimate largely from his trinidad victory
he wasn't bernard hopkins yet



the fight fitting your bill is tyson getting dominated by buster douglas
42 - 1 dog in las vegas (a place that knows something about handicapping fights)

that's absolutely unheard of
