IMO he's already the FOTY even if this fight was not taking place. But, yeah he has to be if he wins this.

Nah. Pac has more talent than all of Donaire's opponents combined. I don't give it to a fighter with only one good win. But I'm making an exception for the guy who KTFO Pac. Too epic.

But with that said, Donaire WILL win the award because it's not up to me to decide.

I'd be more than okay if it were him or JMM but JMM really had such a sensational win that while Donaire may've had a far deeper calendar year, I find myself doubting anyone but Marquez gets this one.

Broner leap-frogged him in the Ring P4P ratings, so I'm guessing he'd have to knock out god in the first round to even move up a notch with Golden Boy, much less be considered FOTY. Think he'll have time to schedule a fifth fight this year after tonight's?

Other than Broner, Broner's dad and Chuck Giampa, I don't know who believes this.

No one believes it right now but what sucks is this serves as a head start for when (if) he does secure some solid wins. He won't have to start at 10 and climb his way up, and few will remember he never deserved to premier at 5 in the first place.

What's about cruz? 5 defences this year? Still undefeated? Just fought a good fight?

Aye. And I do also think he'll be around to get those wins, but it's hard-telling. You never know until you know, Chucky.
