Going into his bout against Chris Higgs (12-1, 1), journeyman William Warburton (9-38-2, 2) had won only 3 of his last 18 bouts. This was supposed to be Higgs' chance to bag another win and claim the vacant International Masters Welterweight title. Sadly for Higgs however Warburton had other things in mind.

Although Higgs started the bout well, Warburton showed his survival instincts and fought back bravely, before changing the flow of the bout in round 6 where he really stunned Higgs. Higgs never really recovered and Warburton managed to counter Higgs wonderfully in the 7th before the previously unbeaten man's legs started to betray him and force the stoppage by referee Ken Curtis.

For Higgs this was certainly unexpected, he wasn't supposed to lose here, though amazingly it was Warburton's fourth victory of the year from an amazing 18 fights! If all fighters were as busy as Warburton has been this year, it'd be fair to say this sport would be much more interesting!


    We all get upsets in sports, but here we hope to get the most weird of upsets within days of them happening.
