Joe Smith Jr Pulls Off Upset of The Year vs Fonfara

Joe Smith Jr Pulls Off Upset of The Year vs Fonfara

POSTER-FB.jpg

You can never be too sure about being sure in boxing.

45 year old George Foreman knocked out Michael Moorer in 1994 to become the oldest heavyweight champion in history. Four year earlier, a much greater 42-1 underdog in Buster Douglas engineered the biggest upset in boxing history with a 10th round KO of Mike Tyson.

Saturday’s bout between Andrzej Fonfara and Joe Smith Jr. certainly wasn’t on the level of those two great heavyweight bouts. But just like those, we saw an upset of monumental proportions last Saturday night. In what is without doubt the biggest upset of the year so far in boxing, Joe Smith Jr. knocked out Andrzej Fonfara in just 90 seconds:

Smith, who works as a construction worker from New York, nailed Fonfara with a big right hand in the opening round that dropped the Polish Prince in a bad manner. Sensing his prey hurt, Smith put on the pressure and finished off Fonfara moments later with a barrage of punches. And just like that, it was over.

Fonfara was 14-0 with 1 ND  at the UIC Pavilion prior to Saturday night. Smith meanwhile fought in clubs and had never fought someone relevant. Fonfara was a heavy favorite. The Fans who gave their predictions at the Throwdown Scoring Mobile App agreed 97%:

Most were wrong. Only 1% of the total fan predictions picked Smith to win by early KO. Whatever they saw in Smith or Fonfara, they were correct.  In the end, we saw another huge upset in the sport, a reminder that in the sport of boxing, all it takes is one punch.
