Hatton vs Senchenko - it was an ambitious comeback for someone like Hatton, was the only timw I had been genuinely pretty upset for a fighter. His promotional companies future also oretty much depended on it
Selection of Senchenko as an opponent after several years out. Was just plain weird. He should atleast fought a tune up against a journeyman.

Looking back on it, Mitch Green losing to Tyson was bad. The year before, he was undefeated, top 10 by both WBA and WBC and some promise. By the end of 1986, he was robbed of a fight with Bonecrusher Smith, out of the rankings, and, with the exception of the streetfighter in Harlem with Tyson, on his way to becoming a footnote in boxing lore.

Howard Davis jr loss to Jim Watt hurt him tremendously. Before, he was a top contender, albeit with a deeply flaws style and a father for a trainer, who truthfully had no business being there in his corner. If his business people would have been more intelligent, there is no way they should have had him fighting in Scotland. After this loss, his rep was damagaed tremendously, and though he had a somewhat respectable career, this one loss affected how fans and other boxing related people to view him negatively, despite being a class act as a person.
