Default Other than the super six, 2010 has been a colossal letdown

How many potential great fights have fallen apart at the seems not only in this year, but the last 12 months in general? Off the top of my head, I can think of:

Manny/ Floyd
Haye/Klit (twice)
Donaire/Darchinyan 2
Alexander vs Bradley vs Maidana vs Khan
Caballero vs Lopez vs Gamboa

If not for the Super Six, this would be one ****ing abysmal year for the sport.

Completely disagreed. This has been a tremendous year already and it's not even half way done.

Ward refused to fight in the tournament unless ALL his fights were in his home town. Green will be cheated.

My oh my, some people really are ****ing stupid.

1 (January), 2 (February), 3 (March), 4 (April), 5 (May), 6 (June).
1 (July), 2 (August), 3 (September), 4 (October), 5 (November), 6 (December).

How would the beginning of June mark the middle of the year? Honestly, that is a question you would find on a Grade 1 comprehension test to cap off the unit where you learned the months.

For people who only follow a handful of fighters, that's true. Other than that, it's not true.

Oh dont give me that boxing fan elitist junk.

Almost every fight in the first 6 months has been as one-sided as it was predicted on paper when it was first signed.

Without Froch/Kessler (a super 6 fight) your leading FOTY would be Escalante/Roman...thats...pretty...pathetic Brah.
