It's a bit early to consider, but as of right now, I have these 2 as my leading candidates for FOTY. In One corner is Floyd Mayweather defeating a pair of top guys in separate Division (Robert Guerrero & Saul Alverez), and then there's Adonis Stevenson, whom not only is on a 9 fight KO/W streak, but started the year avenging his only loss via KO of Darnell Boone, then Chad Dawson and Tavoris Cloud, now to end the year off he will fight Tony Bellew. Like I said it's still early since that fight is next month but if he is to continue the KO/W streak against Bellew, would u say that's enough to be considered 2013's FOTY over Floyd?

Popularity wins this award. Canelo is more popular than any other fighter mentioned against their opponent. Canelo is more popular than Matthysee, Cloud, JMM, Ruslan, and whoever else that was mentioned. Floyd beat Canelo with no question. Because Saul is the most popular opponent Floyd wins this fight.

I didn't say Floyd should win the award, I hardly felt his win against Guerrero was ground breaking. I would say either Bradly, Garcia, or Stevenson would be more deserving.

The Guerrero win is secondary to the Canelo win though. Don't let them bully you out of your pick son! lol

In seriousness though, I wouldn't have a problem with Swift or Stevenson winning this award though.They put in serious work this year. That being said, I'm not getting this notion that Canelo is some hype job. He was the best 154 lber in the world. Let's not poo poo his win over Trout simply because Floyd beat him. If ANY other fighter beat Canelo after Canelo beat Trout, everyone would be on their dick. Canelo was and still is a top tier fighter. Caneli isn't just more popular than Ruslan, Matthysse and Cloud. He's also better than them. Floyd is just better than everyone else. Not just by a little bit either. Stevenson has another fight this year so he can essentially enhance his case even more.

I am not letting them do anything. I just said that this award is a popularity contest. Canelo's name is the Ace in the hole. He ranks over all other competition. I think Bradley and Swift overall competition was better. Canelo is a solid fighter but he was way over his head with Mayweather. Again I would put Stevenson and even Leo Santa Cruz in the mix. But again, this is a popularity award. Floyd will get it, but I think others are more deserving.
