Default Is 2012 quite possibly the worst year in boxing history?

Is 2012 quite possibly the worst year ever?

Lets run down some of the happenings thus far....

(In no particular order)
-Paul Williams motorcycle accident ends career
-Gamboa-Rios cancelled
-Ortiz-Berto II halted twice, and ultimately cancelled
-Khan-Peterson II cancelled
-Lamont Peterson tests positive for PEDs
-Andre Berto tests positive for PEDs
-Tavoris Cloud Roberry vs Campillo
-Brandon Rios Robbery vs Abril
-James Kirkland vs Carlos Molina DEBOCLE
-The passing of Burt Sugar
-The passing of Johnny "Mi Vida Loca" Tapia (In the same week as Paul Williams gets paralyzed)
-Timothy Bradley ROBBERY vs Manny Pacquiao (and quite possibly the greatest robbery in boxing history)

O_O and this is just the stuff that I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff...

So again, my boxing knowledge in terms of it's great history is miniscule so I have to ask: Is 2012 thee worst year ever, in boxing history? Or was there another year that could top this in the number of controversies, and passings, and debocles, etc.

Edit: And the year is not even over with yet!! half the year still to go *prays*
