1) Best fight?

Earl v Katsidis

2) Best domestic fighter?

If you mean domestic level - Khan
Best UK fighter - Calzaghe
So many UK fighters are world level now it's tough to know who to pick.

3) Most improved british fighter?

Gavin Rees

4) Best KO?

Sprott's ko of Harrison

5) Biggest disappointment?

Carl Froch's slow progress to world class opposition.
Refereeing of Matthews v Simpson.

6) Best round?

Katsidis v Earl round 2

7) Biggest upset?

Not many huge ones at domestic level so would probably go for one by a domestic level fighter made good: Rees v Mbaye.
Otherwise Sprott v Harrison or Munyai v Power.

Rob - as I'm not loose you must mean I'm a loser! Anyway, insults aren't my thing.

Limond is one of my favourite scottish boxers and that was an exciting fight - I was on the edge of my seat during that round!

No problem - with Khan I give credit and criticism where its due.

Limond was meant to be on the undercard of the Arthur fight but the last I heard he isn't featuring after all.

Simpson is though so I'm looking forward to seeing him fight again.

Quite a few deserve honourable mentions.

Also, how about -

A) Best prospect to emerge during 2007?

B) Best overseas fighter?

C) Best trainer/coach?

D) Most controversial decision?
