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?

I think it's between Floyd and Garcia. Floyd certainly beat the highest regarded fighter. People can front if they want but before Floyd schooled him, Canelo was supposed to be "the next big thing"... and still could be. Not to mention, Floyd fought him closer to his natural weight than Floyd's. Both of his victories this year were clear, dominant and decisive.

That being said Danny's accomplishment was huge because he was actually the underdog and had arguably his best performance vs a guy people assumed would tear his head off. I wouldn't make a fuss about either guy.

Stevenson isn't a terrible choice but the fact that the Dawson fight only went one round, we can't real;y determine if Dawson is a "done" fighter or still an impressive win. Cloud was always overhyped to me. I always regarded him as the most overrated fighter in boxing but it was HOW Adonis beat him that impressed me. He boxed Cloud's face off. I was impressed. I didn't know he had that in him to that degree.

I can't go Bradley because, while he has solid wins on paper, he didn't look impressive in his victories to me. Let's be honest, Provodnikov made a name for himself at Bradley's expense. Ruslan was only a good win to have on your resume' AFTER Bradley.
