Fights the bookies got "wrong" but most fight fans got right?

Although Heffron was the bookies favourite the (vast?) majority of online boxing fans seemed to be pretty confident that Vassell would win. Any other examples of this?

A lot of people had Hopkins over Pavlik but I don't think Hopkins-Pavlik was anywhere near as clear cut with boxing fans going against the betting favourite (Pavlik was undefeated while Hops was coming off looking poor against Calzaghe remember) as tonights fight.

He wasn't the underdog, but I think pretty much everyone knew that Ovill McKenzie was bigger than a 8/15 favourite against Enzo.
Tough question. Williams-Martinez 2? Though that was more 50-50 in both odds and opinion.
I lost a lost of money backing Martinez for the decision on that one. Yet I was still delighted when the final outcome came.
