morales was a corpse and khan is overrated and was coming off a loss. not saying its not a good win because it is, hes not as good as ppl think but hes still pretty good. still its not even close to making garcia fighter of the year, hes not even in contention.
lopez beatig ortiz wasnt a suprise to me at all so i have a hard time picking it as upset of the year, it might have been a shocker to some other ppl though. for me its probably bailey-jones, i knew bailey had the power to do that to jones or anyone else but it was still shocking when he did.

Agree about Jaro-Wonjongkam as upset of the year.
Also, my "how the hell is this guy on TV?" award...Mercito Gesta...every time I've seen him I just shake my head in wonder.

Am I the only one who didn't think Berto-Guerrero was that great a fight, especially in the first half? Pacquiao-Marquez 4 was far more exciting for the six rounds it took place, Viloria-Marquez was better actionwise too.

anyway, good picks OP. Just a few more. NSB overhyped fighter of the year award goes to Gennady Golovkin, yet having said he would win the award for most avoided fighter of the year after collective efforts made by middleweights including Martinez, Geale, Sturm, Quillin, and Pirog to not sign on to fight him.
Prospect of the year I would give to Keith Thurman, he looked like the total package against Carlos Quintana and I expect him to win a title in 2013.
Most f*cked over fighter of the year is Gabriel Campillo who got absolutely robbed in a fight with Tavoris Cloud and then could not line up a fight for the rest of the year.
John Ruiz-"Huggy bear" fighter of the year goes to Carlos Molina for his awful performance against James Kirkland(albeit a performance that should have resulted in a W).
Time to hang 'em up award goes to Erik Morales, though I think he's listening this time. So good people think he's on something award passes over from Pacquiao to Marquez this year.
Boxing commentator of the year award goes to Al Bernstein, I think he's done some great analysis for recent fights.
Most improved fighter award goes to JCC jr. who went from being a plodding hypejob to a bona fide top five middleweight under the tutelage of Freddie Roach and had he not been busted with marijuana he would have gained a lot in his defeat to Martinez.
Surprise fighter of the year goes to Danny Garcia, who would of thought he'd be Ring Magazine champ of one of the best divisions in boxing? Your KO runner-up vids reminded me that Shinsuke Yamanaka has had a great year, going from a virtual unknown to possibly the main guy at 118lbs. Another bantamweight who deserves a special mention for one of the fighters of the year is Leo Santa Cruz, fighting 5 times this year, and 6 times in the past 13 months against top caliber opposition.

Golovkin so exciting he beat Proksa twice!
Wannabe Chinese award runner up: Robert Guerrero.
Biggest upset could be Marquez over Pac, Garcia KO Khan or Josesito TKO Ortiz.
Biggest mismatch was Canelo over Josesito.
I like the Bailey KO. It wasnt like the Pac KO but you could tell it had so much power even in slo mo. It lifted Jones off his feet, crazy power.
Think there has to be a "Career in Reverse" award too and Jesse Vargas needs to win it.
Who do you got for "Needs to retire" award ? I say Baldomir.

I disagree with nacho being trainer of the year. Lettuce be real, wtf did he tell/teach marquez that he didnt tell marquez he first three fights?
No....that victory was simply because of marquez. He was the one in the ring getting busted up, and caught pacquiao when pacquiao was getting careless. Hes a great fighter, who got a good punch in.
