Point is, KO of the year not only should be an amazing KO, it should be against a top fighter or at least a contender.
Therefor, Donaire wins it, imo.
Roy Jones, though older, is still a very fast and tricky boxer. Lets not forget that before his KO loss to Lebedev, Jones lost a decision to Hopkins and even managed to win 3 or 4 rounds.
Two judges scored Hopkins/Jones 117-111, meaning Jones won 3 rounds against BHOP.
Proof that Jones is still very tricky, fast and can compete at the higher levels.
Next fight he was KTFO by Lebedev.
