Going to limit my upsets to fights that I can remember as I am making this personal to me i.e. I was shocked rather than delving back through the years.
In no particular order:

Clay v Liston. The fighter we had down as a braggart who our Enry put on his backside comprehensively beats the scariest fighter ever seen.

Ali v Foreman. Ali who seemed to be running down his career having lost to Frazier and Norton beats the man who destroyed the pair of them in minutes

Benn v McClellan Benn could dig but was vulnerable to punches himself beats the fighter who has destroyed Julian Jackson twice. If Jackson can't stand toe to toe with him what chance has Benn got?

Curry v Honeyghan Honeyghan has a bit of talent but to be thrown in against Curry who is being argued is better p4p than Hearns or Hagler.

Hopkins v Tarver Time is obviously finally catching up with Hopkins as seen during his 2 defeats by Taylor. Now he is going up 2 weight divisions against the conquerer of Roy Jones JNR

Holyfield v Tyson Finally a ight we have been waiting years for. Its a shame that Holyfield seems to be on the way down the 3 fights against Bowe and the defeat against Moorer seem to indicate time has caught up with the 34 yo fighter. Tyson who has crushed Bruno and Seldon seems to be showing little effect of his jail time.

Douglas v Tyson A fighter with a wasted talent and is suffering from personal problems goes up against a fighter many believe could prove himself to be the greatest of all time. Douglas has talent but you could give him a chance of lasting a couple of rounds if he was a fighter with some heart.

Duran v Barclay The old lightweight great easing down his career takes on the man who beat Hearns the only man to destroy him.

Turpin v Robinson Turpin is a good British fighter but this is Sugar Ray Robinson who we all watched pulverise La Motta earlier this year.

Walcott v Charles Admittidly Charles is running out of credible challengers after his eight successful defences but to give Walcott another shot seems barely credible. Walcott must accept that he let his chance slip of ever winning the HW title when he coasted against Louis 4 years ago. He has been a great fighter but his time is past.
