With the last major fight of the year — last night's controversial draw (and which draws aren't controversial?) between Bernard Hopkins and hometown favorite Jean Pascal in Montreal — behind us, it's now safe to start making our year-end declarations and preparing for the big announcements as writers and publications declare their choices for fighters, fights, rounds, and upsets of the year.
I will soon be analyzing the front-runners in those categories, leading up to King J's year-end column compiling the top choices of all of the boxing Featured Columnists here on Bleacher Report.
However, before I delve into that rich subject matter, I'd like to take some time to recognize the individuals and groups that had the most successful, unsuccessful, and mixed results in 2010.
This is Part 1 of my three part series on boxing's biggest winners, losers, and split decisions over the past year.
