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?

Gotta give this one to Berto/Guerrero, simply because of the adversity factor.

Berto was hurt and swelling up, and he came back and made it somewhat of a fight. He could've quit or found a way out, but he didn't. Both guys gave each other a hard time, mostly Guerrero giving it to Berto.

In Rios/Alvarado, there was no adversity factor to call it a barn burner, so to speak. As soon as one guy got hurt badly enough, the damn fight was over (which sucked). As Professor said, there was no defense in that fight and they (HBO and the media) tried too hard to make it a Gatti/Ward fight.
