    Sergio Martinez last 2 fights are good examples as well. I guess the Paul Williams one doesn't count but you can at least see a shorter man do very well against a taller longer guy.

    More recently Eddie Chambers vs. Dimitrenko
    Anyone who beat Valuev or the Klitschkos. (Except maybe lennox against vitali... I mean he's "smaller" but not really that much. They're approx. same size)
