Couldn't care less about the real award, last time I checked, this thread was about who won FOTY for The Ring; so yeah, Marquez got that. I'd take Guerrero's year over Donaire's every time if it panned out the way it did in '12. Nobody in the world was picking any of those guys to give Donaire any problems except for diehard-Donaire fans. Actual fans of the sport wanted Mares, Moreno, or Rigo for Donaire yet he side-stepped every last one of them in order to fight the likes of who? Marquez, Guerrero, and Mares each had a better, more productive year than Donaire.
