Come on, Guerrero ? Yes, he jumped two weight divisions, but who he beat...broken Berto with over a year long lay off and Aydin with a record filled with mostly nobodies. No no from me.

I think the award should go to Marquez. He had only one fight in 2012 but I think it's safe to say it was an awesome one.

Danny Garcia is my favorite though. Definitely his breakthrough year and he did it with flying colors.

Actually, he fought Fedchenko in April on the Rios/Abril card. Needless to say, that fight could've easily been overlooked. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

garcia and marquez are definitely good choices. i cannot make a case for nonito donaire though. never heard of mathebula...and he wasn't that impressive in that victory. nishioka wasn't the best imo. arce shouldn't have been in the same ring with nonito.

Garcia had the best year with Marquez a close second. Josesito Lopez would have been on my list if he didn't let GBP talk him into the Canelo fight.

most impressive win...marquez by far. he wasn't favored...no one expected the ko.

garcia wasn't favored against morales (1st time) nor was he favored against khan. his ko of khan...and morales the 2nd time was impressive.

guerrero forget that he came off a long lay off due to shoulder injury and jumped 2 weight classes...he wasn't favored against aydin or berto. many of u here thought berto would ko guerrero. tisk..tisk...

donaire i'm sorry...mathebula (never heard of him), nishioka (beat an over the hill rafa marquez and jhonny gonzalez...big deal) and arce ( who quit in his last fight)....are not the kind of opposition that earn u fighter of the year...especially when u are heavily favored to beat all 3.

froch....did he fight this year? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Can't agree with the first bold at all. Marquez was favored by many, if he wasn't it was probably because of the judges screwing him over so many times.

No one ever heard of aydin so idk who wasn't favoring him against aydin so I can't agree there.

Couldn't agree with you more about nonito.

And Froch Damn near retired Bute lol

the odds makers favored pac over marquez...

they also favored aydin over guerrero. aydin was berto's mandatory...and someone else's too...

forgot about bute. eh...
