There are a lot of things to consider like the fighter's activity, quality of opponents, etc.
Pacquiao was also looking the best he had ever looked since the Cotto fight, before getting KTFO, which makes that win much more sweeter.

Whether or not he deserves to be FOTY, he still had the single best victory of the year by far.

In contrast, there was the sense going into IV that Manny might be there for the taking this time around,; and even though he did look a lot better than he had in previous fights, there was still the question of whether he was gonna be able to sustain that level of brilliance.

Granted, the KO was sudden as hell, and it's still an impressive achievement to be sure...But in there were other single results that were (nearly) as impressive and shocking in their own way.

Still, the zult allowed JMM to enter the discussion in a big way, and I'll certainly admit that there was a damned good reason why that should have happened.
Well i'll tell you one thing, Ward certainly has the best case of having the Perfromance of the Year against Dawson.

Marquez, Martinez, Mares, Viloria, Ioka, Matthysse Froch and Garcia all deserved it more imo
They're all deserving but somebody has to win. It so happened that more fans who voted were more impressed overall with Donaire than Marquez who came in far second. That's how it is in boxing which is a subjective sports. Just stating for the record that our boy won the plum awarded by Ring Mag and ESPN. Those guys you mentioned should try their luck next time around.

Yup, Nonito deserves it well.
And he's now planning to fight Rigo next with VADA random testing
2013 seems a big potential for him too

I agree with you but he did not win the FOTY as voted by majority of the fans. They are not looking at one single fight but all the fights that one boxer fought in 2012
