Fighter of the Year:

Froch. Burns a decent/worthy runner-up. Jamie McDonnell for missing the headlines but winning all the big fights.

Fight of the Year:

Froch v Bute.

Non Participant of the Year:

Channel 5 for showing boxing on Saturday night mainstream TV. McCracken for his superb work for Froch and the excellent Team GB set-up.

Prospect of the Year:

Eubank Junior, Kid Galahad, Kevin Satchell and John Ryder.

Round of the Year:

Round 4 Froch v Bute. No, not the obvious big, knock-down round. But a great round because Froch stalks Bute and does what he wants with a previously unbeaten fighter. Takes a break for the first 2 mins and then launches into Bute again as he pleases. Complete domination and Bute lurches back to his corner looking like a man who knows he's in trouble.

Event of the Year:

Haye v Chisora. Heaps of hype, full 'old school' outdoor boxing night. Also Froch v Bute at Nottingham, because Bute suddenly realises that he's actually the rasher of bacon sizzling in the middle of a red-hot frying pan.

Upset of the Year:

Kerry Hope beats Proska to win European middleweight crown. A 'shot' and 'just over here for the pay cheque' Corley beats-up McCloskey in Belfast.

Letdown of the Year:

Drugs in boxing - Adams and Olubamiwo.
Too many fights - Ricky Hatton, Danny Williams.
Career in the dumps - Nathan Cleverly, talented, unbeaten and still unknown

Domestic/world-level fights we all want in 2013

Quigg v Frampton
Cleverly v Bellew 2
Fury v Price
Eubank v Saunders
Brook v Khan
Burns v Rees

Young Guns we'll be talking about in 2013

Jazza Dickens, Gary Cornish, Frank Buglioni, Anthony Joshua.
