I was hoping for Eddie Mustafa Muhammad to be trainer of the year..He changes fighters for the better more than anyone else I think..

Whay was PBF not included as fighter of the year? Even if he is "retired" he is still the best ever & does not need to fight to prove it. That is why he will win all categories or the fix is in.

Khans KO was crazy. All of those clips where pretty cool though. I like how Torres' legs just died on him like that. I mean he was winning and then all of a sudden he collapsed.

You are both very wrong. It is PBF & that is the right answer for everything.

I actually thing that Roach is trainer of the year though. He came up with a gameplan that no one has put against DLH. Come forward & use angles to smash his fuckin head in.

I had Roach as trainer of the year and Miranda as KO of the year..FOTY--Cotto/Margarito..Worst decision--Toney/Oquendo..
King Eugene
I had to give Cotto/Margarito fight of the year. I cant remember the last time I was on the edge of my seat like that for every round. Man that fight was beautiful!

I think Campbell/Diaz could've been up there for upset, I didn't know too many gave him a chance and Diaz was one of the up and coming guys at the time.
