This past Saturday night in London, Caleb Truax pulled off a shock victory over Olympic gold medal winner James DeGale at the Copper Box Arena.
British boxer DeGale was a heavy favourite before the bout started, with some bookmakers rating him as a 100-1 favourite.
DeGale was making his recovery from shoulder surgery in his fight since January, but was defeated 114-114 115-112 116-112 on a judges' decision and Truax walked away with the IBF super middleweight world title.
The defeat was only DeGale's second of his career, and was disappointed as he spoke to BBC Radio 5 after the fight:
"I honestly did [think I'd won], I've got to go back to the drawing board.
"My nose is blocked again, I've got to sort it out. The shoulder - I had serious reconstruction - there's no pain but I'll have to go back, have a look and see. I've probably rushed back to be honest, maybe I should have waited till next year."
Truax felt disrespected before the fight, as DeGale was often discussing potential opponents for 2018 - like George Groves, David Benavidez and Chris Eubank Jr.
Truax felt DeGale was never the same after he battered him with very hard punches in the fifth round that busted up the Olympic gold medal winner's nose and mouth.
“He was most definitely looking past me,” Truax said to the Star Tribune. “He wasn’t talking about the fight that was two days away. He was talking about who he’s going to fight after he beats me. In boxing, you can’t do that.”
“It still hasn’t sunk in. I came here to win. I wouldn’t have come all this way if I wasn’t confident in the fight. I give him credit because I hit him with some huge shots and he stood up to them and didn’t go down. He has the resolve of a champion. But after that he was hurt.”
