2010 Fight of the Year - Boxing

Unread postby swerb » Sun Dec 12, 2010 10:57 am

Two frontrunners last night. Was a serious lack of FOY candidates this year in boxing till these past couple months, where we've seen some amazing fights. Here's my short list, in no apparent order.

Marcos Maidana/Amir Khan - Khan hangs on to survive a vicious war between two of the best fighters in boxing's best weight class (140).

Vic Darchinyan/Abner Mares - Young Mexican up and coming bantamweight star Mares overcomes a vicious cut from a headbutt in rd 1 and a second round knockdown to take down The Raging Bull in a close, violent split decision.

Yohhny Perez/Abner Mares - Mares again, earlier this year, on the undercard of the 4th Vasquez/Marquez fight ... battle to a back and forth draw.

Rafael Marquez/Juan Manuel Lopez - The passing of the torch at featherweight.

Michael Katsidas/Juan Manuel Marquez - The gritty future Hall of Famer JMM shows he still has plenty left in his tank dispatching of Katsidas.

Carl Froch/Mikkel Kessler - Kessler wins a hard fought unanimous decision in prolly the best fight of the Super Six ... but possibly at the expense of his career (eye injury).

That Katsidis-JMM fight was absolutely terrific. Fast-paced, constant action. I've really embraced boxing a lot more over the last couple years.
