Louis vs Galento 1939 On June 28, 1939 Joe Louis defended his world heavyweight title aginst Tony Galento. Two-Ton Tony was a 9-1 betting underdog--for good reason. His physique was more suited to a pie-eating champion than a heavyweight boxing contender. He had a pretty decent left hook and not much else. Nevertheless, Tony put up a decent showing against Louis. Galento even managed to score a flash knockdown in the third round before he himself was knocked out in round four.

Buster Douglas Kayos Mike Tyson On February 11, 1990, Buster Douglas scored perhaps the biggest upset in sports history when he knocked out Mike Tyson in Tokyo to win the world heavyweight championship. Douglas was a 42-1 underdog. I sure wish I had placed a few dollars on Buster!

1924 Olympic Rugby Final You may have to watch this clip through the appropriate link. Nevertheless, here are a few minutes of the gold-medal rugby match from the 1924 Paris Olympics. It was the fourth time rugby had been part of the Summer Olympics. In 1924 only three countries entered teams: the United States, Romania, and France. In the round-robin event, France crushed Romania 61-3. The Americans blasted the Romanians 37-0 to set up a championship encounter against the French. The host French showed great animosity against the American team (that was mostly made up of students from Stanford University). The French refused to allow the Americans to have anything resembling a practice field, so they ended up working out in a local park. The Americans were kicked out of their hotel and also lost about $4,000 in valuables when their supposedly secure locker room was broken into by thieves. Undeterred, the Americans, despite being 5:1 underdogs in wagering, thumped the French 17-3 to take the gold medals. They needed a police escort to leave the stadium safely. One American substitute was knocked cold when he was struck over the head with a spectator's walking stick! Rugby has not been in any Olympics since that time, but it will return to the Games in 2016.

Frazier vs Zyglewicz  1969 On April 22, 1969, world heavyweight champion Joe Frazier put his title on the line in Houston against hometown favorite Dave (Ziggy) Zyglewicz. Ziggy, a huge underdog, gamely decided to take the fight to Frazier. Ninety-six seconds after the opening bell the contest was over. The vanquished Zyglewicz's wife later told reporters it was akin to "entering a Volkswagen in the Indianapolis 500."

ESPN Reveals 1973 King-Riggs Match was Fixed Confirming many people's suspicions that have lingered for 40 years, an expose on ESPN.com this week showed strong evidence that Bobby Riggs deliberately lost his famous Battle of the Sexes tennis match to Billie Jean King as a way to erase his gambling debts with organized crime. The 55-year-old Riggs had throttled Margaret Court, the world's top female tennis player, in a televised match on Mother's Day 1973 6-2, 6-1. Four months later King, the defending Wimbledon champion, beat Riggs in surprisingly easy fashion 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 before a big TV audience and more than 30,000 fans at the Houston Astrodome--despite being a 5-2 underdog at Las Vegas sports books. When one views the Riggs-King match with a critical eye, Riggs played passively and listlessly--not remotely the same way he played against Court in May. Riggs' shots were soft and usually placed directly at King. Riggs, the 1939 men's Wimbledon champion, whose serve was impeccably accurate, also double-faulted at four critical points in the match--including set point in the first set. Several all-time male tennis legends, including Don Budge who achieved the Grand Slam in 1938, expressed doubts about the honesty of the match, but their doubts were dismissed as wounded male pride at the time. According to the ESPN story, Riggs was anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 in debt to the mob. A witness, now 79, who was close to the mob, told ESPN he had overheard the discussions regarding the fix. Riggs came up with a two-part plan: In exchange for having his gambling debts expunged, Riggs would goad Court into a TV match with sexist comments knowing full well he could beat her soundly. He would then purposely lose to King as a way for the mob to make a killing in wagers on King at long odds. Riggs died in 1995 at age 77. King was among the last people to speak to him.
