Since I've followed boxing intensely on the Internet, I find it seems like all years are horrible for boxing, because I'm constantly in the loop about who has died, when fights are canceled and what ridiculous garbage sanctioning bodies are up to. If I went back to the days where I relied on HBO and ESPN and Showtime, I wouldn't know a tenth of this stuff. Of course, I never want to see the year that tops Forest, Arguello and Gatti. 2009 was awful, for non-fight boxing news.
