Though there's still more fights to come before the year is out, which of these 2 fights do you feel right now is the Front-Runner to Fight Of The Year, and why?

i think berto/guerrero was a little more skillful and competitive than rios/alvarado. there wasn't enough defense in rios/alvarado. i know...just thinking about that fight makes my head hurt! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Hmm, is that a compliment to "Berto's version" of the Shoulder Roll over Alvarado's version. Both were pretty ugly to me, but Berto looked more foolish using it.

if u put those shoulder rolls side by side....they were equally as awful. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) no compliments for either version.

That shit cracks me up everytime I see Berto come out confident in that stance, only to get knocked down in the first round SMH. He even shakes his head in a Mayweather like manner as if he wasn't hurt at times too lol. To many of these up and coming fighters starting to ride in this same lane. No hate on TRYING to utilize the shoulder, but when your mannerism seem to mimic another fighter almost identical, the shit gets foolish.

it's not just fighters...it's across the board...music...everything. no originality any more. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

it's sad...but i have amateurs that i've taught that shoulder roll to who execute it better.
