But apart from the connection and thrill sports can make its audience feel, sports have continued to gain fans worldwide due to betting.
May it be live or online sports betting Malaysia, patrons will surely flock. Who would not love to experience watching their favorite sport while earning some bucks? You can win thousands or millions of dollars if you are lucky enough. Take the biggest upsets in the sports industry, for example.
Like how you do in football betting Malaysia, it is only normal if you will place a wager on your favorite team or player. However, there are times when this plan fails, and an underdog wins against a crowd favorite. One example is Buster Douglas’ win against Mike Tyson in 1990.
With odds of 42/1, Douglas defeated Mike Tyson. Douglas was supposed as a warm-up for Tyson’s match against Evander Holyfield. But, in an unexpected twist of events, Tyson was beaten after he was knocked out after ten rounds.
Tyson struggled with his rhythm while Douglas made a strong start. However, after six months of Douglas taking the belt from Tyson, Holyfield defeated him via a KO.
Douglas’ win against Mike Tyson is one example of the most significant sports upsets that have given massive amounts of winnings to bettors. Others are Leicester City’s win in the 2015/16 Premier League, Emma Raducanu winning the 2021 US Open, and Chelsea Beats Bayern Munich in the 2011/12 Champions League finals.
These wins may seem atypical, but it happens. This is the beauty of sports. Unexpected events can happen now and then. If you want to know more stories like this, you can read them through this infographic by CM2BET.
