Wladimir is THE champion - he defended his lineal championship 3 times to further his future HOF ATG legacy. Froch, coming off a loss, won a title belt and defended it once.

Easily Wlad's year was better based on what was at stake.

Tough call Wlad was so dominant but Carl really gave us something special vs Bute probably should get Ring comeback of the yr for that

Froch has had an incredible 2012. I think he is exceeding everyones expectations of him as a fighter.

Considering where Froch came from, 2012 will be a year to remember for Froch's career. Wlad's 2012 was just the 'same old'. Not a stand out year for him aside from the fact he stayed in injury free.

Only a moron would elect Wlad. Thats like saying Canelo and Cleverly had the best year just because they defended their titles.

Froch won a belt from no.2 ranked undefeated Bute when he had initially been tipped to retire and stormed through Mack in spectacular fashion.

Froch by far, he caused what was at the time a large upset to win the title against a fighter who many people saw as the best or 2nd best in the division. Wlad won two pointless fights against joke opposition and the Wach fight had him hurt but was still a good win. But the Bute win based on context overrules all of Wlad's wins. The Mack fight was probably just to earn Froch some

Froch.
The Mormeck fight was a disgrace the other 2 put together arent better than the Bute win.

Not knocking Wlad, not his fault the division is shite.

Froch easily, he defeated the undefeated #2 SMW in the division Bute in spectacular fashion and demolished Mack in 3 rounds. It was just a year of joke defences for Wlad, Mormeck was too small and done nothing to earn a shot, Thompson was poor but he was a mandatory, Wach done nothing to earn a shot he never even beat anybody in the top 50 so how did he even get the shot, he did well to last the distance but people give him too much credit he only lasted so long cause of his chin and balls he still got outclassed. Not knocking Wlad 2013 looks like a much better year for him with fighters like Povetkin, Pulev, Boytsov and Fury knocking at his door.

Fan of both, but Froch and it's not even close, Klitschko did what he had to do, hopefully a better 2013 for him
