1951 (Boxing) Sugar Ray Robinson loses for the first time in 72 fights - spanning nearly 8½ years - after losing on points to Englishman Randy Turpin. Turpin was a +300 underdog for the fight held at Earl's Court in London, England. Robinson would regain the middleweight title 3 months later in a rematch held at the Polo Grounds in New York City.


1976 (Golf): At the Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England, 39 year-old American Johnny Miller wins his first Open Championship title after shooting a 6-under 66 in the final round to beat Seve Ballesteros and Jack Nicklaus by 6 strokes. Miller entered the tournament at +800 to win the title while Nicklaus was the favorite at +450. Ballesteros, who was looking for his first Grand Slam victory, held a 2-stroke lead going into the final round but shot a 2-over 74. This was Miller's 2nd and final major championship victory.
