Boxing: 5 Strong Candidates Who Can Win the Fighter of the Year Award

It's been a little over half a year and we've already been treated to fantastic performances from some fighters and dreadful performances by others.

Past winners Manny Pacquiao and Sergio Martinez have yet to make their run at the award this year, as Pacquiao's match with Mosley was just dreadful to watch and Martinez has been unable to find any top-tier opponents to get in the ring with him.

While neither of the past winners have turned in a potential winning performance yet, other fighters have stepped up to the plate.

I didn't add the winner of the super six tournament because of the possibility that it might get postponed again due to injury to either fighter. While it is very unlikely that the tournament can get postponed again, I left it out as a possibility. If and when their fight goes through, the winner would be a strong candidate to win. 

Here are a look at five boxers who have each had stellar fights this year and have won them for a world title.

Remember, this is only halfway through the year and nothing is set in stone yet.
