-which fight coming up are you most excited about? Berto/Querrero and Thurman/Quintana doubleheader

at this point....

-which is foty so far? It's between Lopez/Salido II...Salido was the new champ, went back to PR and knocked Lopez out, and faced a possible robbery on the cards before the stoppage.

-which is ko of the year so far? Khan/Garcia...I think I just enjoyed watching Khan get knocked around the ring.

-come back of the year? Jones/Bailey...outside of qualified observers, not many would've known that Bailey was gonna clean Mike's clock.

-upset of the year? On the lesser known scale, Denis Grachev's come-from-behind TKO upset victory over Ismayl Sillakh, or Dulorme's recent TKO loss to Abregu.

-best new prospect? Leo Santa Cruz...though he's a champ now, dude is a prospect in my eyes....a great prospect, but a prospect nonetheless. On the lesser known scale, I'll give it to Javier Fortuna.

-trainer of the year? Pedro Diaz. Though Cotto lost the Mayweather fight, that's the best I've seen him look, especially against a ringmaster in Floyd.

-time to hang them up? Erik Morales

-best kept secret? Gennady Golovkin

-most protected? Canelo

-most underrated? Carlos Molina

-most overrated? Why is this one so hard to answer?

-promoter of the year? Golden Boy Promotions...though I hate how they try to insult out intelligence when it comes to Canelo, I MUST thank them all of these quadrupleheaders!

-network of the year? Showtime...they've successfully fleeced HBO on many occasions this year.

-favorite commentator? I'll stick with RJJ, and of course Gus Johnson for novelty purposes, though Paulie has made his mark this year with accuaracy.

did i miss anything?

Robbery of the Year: Cloud/Campillo or Rios/Abril...take your pick.

Round of the Year: Lopez/Salido (round 9) or Chavez/Martinez (round 12)...take your pick.

Douchebag of the Year: Abner Mares and Amir Khan are going life and death for this spot.

Not a bad list Professor! I believe Khan is the Douchebag of the Year because of his inability to take FULL responsibility for his losses. First he admitted it, then SLOWLY, it started to become everybody else's fault. Lol

there's only a few left....

-which fight coming up are you most excited about?

Gotta get back to you on this one. The fights I wanted to see already happened this year for the most part.

-which is foty so far?
I have to say it's a tie between Cotto vs Mayweather and Rios vs Alvarado

-which is ko of the year so far?
If we're going on sheer punch quality, I gotta go with Gary Russell's demolition of Chris Perez

-come back of the year?
David Haye's career! I thought he was done for. that Chisora win was impressive

-upset of the year?
Lopez vs Ortiz. I kinda felt it coming though. Part of me wanted to say Garcia vs Khan but to be honest, Khan was schooling Garcia until he got rocked. Lopez beat Ortiz more convincingly IMO.

-best new prospect?
I'm going to go out of the box and say Daquan Arnett. Are Adrien and Gary still "prospects" anymore?

-time to hang them up?
I want to go Erik Morales. I lost a lot of respect for this dude. Go home fat boy! But since everyone picked him already, I'll go Jermain Taylor

-best kept secret?
Bryant Jennings

-most protected?
Gary Russell. But I don't think it's that bad though. He's still very young. Very green.

-most underrated?
Vanes Martirosyan. I thought Lara was beating him, but I told ppl before he could fight. I saw this guy school JCC Jr in sparring sessions. He has skills.

-most overrated?
Tavaris Cloud.

-trainer of the year?
No doubt...gotta go Virgil Hunter on this one.

-promoter of the year?
Golden Boy. They had some very unfortunate, freak situations happen and pulled together som nice cards still

-network of the year?
Showtime. HBO let them gain ground this year.

-favorite commentator?
I'm gonna show some love to my guy Al Bernstein. He's isn't suave looking and as epic on the mic but he has no biases and knows his stuff! Roy had a good year too


did i miss anything?

Robbery of the Year:
Cloud/Campillo. didn't see Rios vs Abril. Bradley vs Pacquiao a close second.

Round of the Year:
Any round in Rios vs Alvarado or Mayweather vs Cotto round 5.

Douchebag of the Year:
Robert Guerrero...c'mon guys. You already know I was going there. He's the biggest dick in boxing not named Bob Arum IMO.

Performance of the Year:
Bronze Floyd beating Cotto the fashion he did
Silver Ward beating Dawson the fashion he did
Gold David Haye knocking out Chisora with his career pretty much on the line IMO!
daprofessor
Performance of the Year:
Bronzecotto for not getting ktfo'd like everyone predicted
Silvertim bradley for further exposing pac's flaws
Gold guerrero for jumping up 2 weight classes and beating a number 1 rated contender

flazi
i picked the bailey ko just cause of the brutality of it. one punch, perfectly placed and timed, dude was out and bled ugly after.

my perfomance of the year:
bronze garcia for being patient and waiting out the early khan storm then timing him with the ko
silver martinez for giving the grown up spoiled brat chavez his just due
gold josesito lopez for not only breaking ortiz jaw ugly but for upsetting the apple cart and earning himself a few extra bucks

honorable mention to paul williams for the attitude he displayed after becoming paralyzed, dude was still smiling in his wheelchair. i wish i could have that kind of resolve.

No you DON'T have Guerrero as the fighter of the year. Please tell me I'm losing my vision! LOL
checkleft
I think broner had a better year than guerrero but for some reason something is stopping me from putting him as fighter of the year.. Garcia would get my vote for fighter of the year with Lucas trailing him.

laugh.gif how did i know u would respond this way?

let me make the case....

when was the last time a guy jumped 2 weight classes and beat a number 1 ranked contender and a former champion?

who has accomplished something greater?

i would put bradley's upset victory over pac up top....but with all the controversy surrounding that decision....eh.

martinez??? eh.

garcia? maybe...his wins over morales and khan were good ones...but i'm not sure they measure up to what guerrero did.

who else is there? really?

Responding in order of every - (prolly would take effort to tell which is which lol)

- So I've heard
- Hmm, I think I agree so far
- Yeah...
- Bailey/Jones definitely... I would also throw Mitchell/Banks up there for nomination
- Gary Russel? Really? And I thought you were sold on Rigondaeux tongue.gif
- I'm never sure on this
- lol too many to name
- I guess so
- hahaha
- Didn't know he was underrated
- Not sure about that, but I can't think of anyone else atm
- Golden Boy in honorable sense, but Top Rank is grabbin dough
- Same with the Promoter of the Year
- I agree, Paulie is dope
- Hmm I think I can agree with that...
- Definitely, good shit
- hehehe, i dont even know
- maybe
- LOL I'm not sure enough myself to agree or disagree, hahahaha
