Fighter of the Year
- Juan Manual Marquez
Strong case can be made for either Donaire or Marquez.
Donaire fought four times this year, moving up to a new division, unifying belts and becoming the Ring Champion in the division. All within a year is impressive.
Marquez on the otherhand only fought twice, but his win over Pacquiao was not only a win, but a brutal knockout. That single victory was enough for me.
