Fight of the Year 2010: Humberto Soto UD-12 Urbano Antillon

Nonstop action with a legitimate title on the line. Great fight all around.

 

Fighter of the Year 2010: Sergio Martinez

No doubt with this one. He won the lineal middleweight title and avenged his last loss by BIG KO. 

 

Knock Out of the Year 2010: Sergio Martinez KO-2 Paul Williams

Rarely do you see a KO that brutal in a fight between two top fighters.

 

Best Clinic of the Year 2010: Amir Khan UD-12 Andriy Kotelnik

Won by scores of 120-108 and 118-111. You can argue it wasn't even that close. 

 

Come Back of the Year 2010: Sergio Martinez

Came back from a lot of BS decisions and had the best year of any fighter. 

 

Worst Decision of the Year 2010: Beibut Shumenov SD-12 Gabriel Campillo

Love Shumenov, but he didn't win that fight. No way no how. 

 

Trainer of the Year 2010: Freddie Roach

Not even close anymore. 

 

Best Fight Card of the Year 2010 (meaning best overall main event and undercards): Top Rank's In Harm's Way

Fight of the year was the Main Event and the Donaire fight was great. The Mikey Garcia fight was also a nice treat.  

 

Best New Prospect of the Year 2010: James DeGale.

Had a great 2010 and should only improve next year. 

 

Best Boxing Commentator of the Year 2010: Al Bernstein

Just compliments a fight well and doesn't take it over.
