Was Corrie Sanders beating Wlad really an upset? Rematch right away. What happens?
I keep hearing how Wladimir lost 3 times via upsets. I disagree. He lost twice via upsets. To Purrity and Brewster.
Corrie Sanders was not really an upset. The easiest way to determine this will be :
Ask yourself this. Will you bet on Wladimir if they re matched immediately. Like within 3 months? I won't. Young Wlad had way too many weaknesses that could be exploited by a lot of big punchers, and especially one of southpaw aggressiveness like Sanders.
Lennox re matched Rahman right away and knocked him out. That was an upset.
If Douglas had to rematch Tyson within 3 months-6 months, most people will still bet on Tyson. That is an upset.
I honestly don't think Sanders cost an 'upset'. It was more like Wlad got exposed.
I mean think about it. You put Young Wlad in place of Vitali vs Sanders? Young Wlad would have been knocked out again within 1-2 rounds.
