Marquez obviously has the better win and by far the best win of the year, without any question.

But Donaire has the depth, moved up in weight and unified his divison.

Hard one but I'll lean on Marquez.

Donaire. Had he beaten Rigo instead of Arce, there would be zero discussion on who is the FOTY.

But, he didn't.

I have to go with Marquez because of the higher caliber. But it's very close, and I'd be okay with either. I just don't weigh Donaire's wins nearly as highly, and I don't really give him that much credit for Arce, to be honest. The fight was a foregone conclusion from the moment it was signed, and just a case of cashing in on a name. It's the equivalent to Ward-Pavlik basically.

Donaire got my vote. Good performance at 122. Hopefully he stays there for another years and continues the pace at which he currently fights. If he fought four more times next year, and two of those were Mares and Rig, I really couldn't **** on him at all.

Lol Donaire for beating old horses, even Mares has more merit just by Moreno alone. And the fighter of the year is the one that made history, made Lampley cry and put Larry into a well earned retirement. No discussion about it.

Marquez.

His one major victory was better, more important and more significant than all of Donaire's opponents combined.
