The boxing year It’s time to end, so it’s time for us to rethink “which year of the year”.
2021 has been one of the sport’s craziest years to date. Unpredictable results and upsets have become the norm, and it has seen some of the biggest underdog winners in the sport’s history.
In fact, according to Tapology.com, two of the biggest disturbances in combat sports history happen in 2021.
Using historically verifiable odds, there have been three lower winners at +1400 ($100 bet for $1,400 profit), which has never happened before in combat sports.
Let’s take a look back at boxing’s biggest shake-ups in 2021.
James Martin (+1400) vs Vito Mielnicki
James Martin was scheduled to take on the undefeated Vito Mielnicki, and he was supposed to be nothing more than a can of tomatoes for the favorite -5000 beat to gain experience. Martin had different plans, winning the decisive match in the eighth round.
Masamichi Yabuki (+1400) vs Kenshiro Teraji
If you are interested in Japanese boxing, then you are also a true fan of this sport. But if you think this is a fixed fight or a small duel that no one cares about, think again. Kenshiro Teraji is the WBC lightweight flyweight world champion, and is undefeated 18-0.
Not only did Masamichi Yabuki upset the -3000 favorites in Teraji, but he also did it via KO/TKO in the 10th and final round.
Sandor Martin (+1400) vs Mikey Garcia
If you’re a fan of the sport in North America, this is a sport you’ve probably heard of. Mikey Garcia is a multiple-time IBF champion, and he was expected to easily handle Sandor Martin in their October game. Garcia is on the -2500 favorites list.
Martin will win the fight by majority decision.
With as much turmoil as we’ve seen in 2021, it would be a shame to just name the top three. Here are other notable disturbances that have occurred in boxing this calendar year.
