Cristofer Rosales went to Japan and stopped Daigo Higa in one the biggest upsets so far this year, as far as betting odds go.
Rosales was the definitive underdog according to the Bookies and he could be found at as long as (+900) odds at 5Dimes online betting.
The story of the fight had to be the fact Daigo Higa missed weight and what effect that had on his performance. Higa was stripped of his WBC flyweight title for coming in 2 lbs overweight but both camps decided to proceed with the fight anyway, with a weight limit imposed on Higa for fight night.
Rosales was able to absorb the punches of Higa, who was 15-0 with all wins coming by way of knockout. So, it certainly raises questions in the minds of boxing fans on whether the struggle to make weight took something off of his power.
