Recently I've mostly picked the right winners but the fights were more competitive than I expected:

Khan v Judah - I thought Judah would be much more competitive but Khan destroyed him, did pick Khan to win though.

Mayweather v Ortiz - I didn't think Ortiz would have a prayer but in the end he was coming into the fight and making it competitive, proved himself to a degree imo. Still picked FMJ to win.

Khan v Peterson - Thought it would be an easy win for Khan, I still felt it was a solid win for Khan but it certainly wasn't easy. Got the winner wrong or right, whichever way you view it.

Pacquiao v Marquez - I thought the weight would hamper Marquez, couldn't see anything but a Pacquiao win, but it was obviously much more competitive than that.


The other one I did get badly wrong was overrating Arthur Abraham in the Super 6, I actually thought he would win it after he KO'd Taylor.

Oh yes, good call, I was horribly wrong on this one too.
In hindsight, it should have been easy to see that his stamina problems and his very slow starts would cost him enormously at world class level, but I really thought he would raise some heads with his knockout power and win this thing.

I gamble poorly on B-Hops. Picked Pavlik and Pascal (the first time) to beat him. Also picked him to beat Calzaghe. Wrong, wrong and wrong.

[QUOTE=Emon723;11996282]Winky-Tito, no way at all I pick Wright to win

I actually bet on Winky that fight. The guy I made the bet with just knew Tito was gonna blow him out of the water. Dude thought I was crazy, but my pick would have to be Jones vs Tarver II. Having to burn that muscle he put on for Ruiz messed him up.
