Gotta' work on this.

 

I didn't take good notes this year, and my memory 'aint what it used to be.

(Or maybe it is,  I can't quite remember.)

----------------------

 

One thing's for sure:  Howard Foster definitely grabbed the "Most Corrupt Referee"  trophy this year,  with his stellar performance in Dubois - Lerena.

Russel Mora gave it his best in Bivol - Canelo,  but sadly for him, the right man still won.

Fight of the Year:

Lot's of competition, but I think I'll go with Dimitri Bivol beating Canelo, the judges, and the referee, all in the same night.

De-throning the king is serious business.

-----------

 

Trainer of the Year:    Derek James.

 

Spence comes back from the dead and KO's Ugas.

Jermell Charlo KO's Castano

And the new wonder boy Frank Martin just COMPLETELY dominated a very talented & undefeated Michel Rivera.

 

 

That 'aint whistling Dixie.

Fighter of the Year

Bivol. 2 big wins trump the one for Usyk

Fight of the Year

Leigh Wood vs Michael Conlan.

KO of the Year

In the interest of avoiding repeating FOTY I'll go with Caleb Plant vs Anthony Dirrell.

Comeback of the Year

Kiko Martinez

Trainer of the Year

Easy enough to stay with fighter of the year in this spot I'll go Derrick James for his success with multiple fighters.

Event of the Year

For spectacle 94000 for Fury vs Whyte. For significance Haney vs Kambosos I, the lightweight title changes hands.

Upset of the Year

Opetaia vs Briedis

Performance of the Year

Bivol vs Canelo

Most Inspirational

Not much about boxing extends beyond the ring tbh. But yea Usyk was it in a unique year for all the wrong reasons.

Robbery of the Year

Ian John Lewis hasn't worked since Taylor vs Catterall. He had the same winner as Victor Loughlin and was 1 round different than Loughlin's card. IJL being robbed of his career wins this category.

Jeez, I thought that was in 2021 !

If anyone could dethrone the steaming piles of pig entrails that are Howard Foster and Russel Mora,  it would have to be the most corrupt boxing official of the 21st century,  IJL.    

 

And of course, the BBoC let the decision stand.

 

Of course.
