I would go with Kessler/Calzaghe, PBF/Hatton and then Taylor/Pavlik, in terms of historical significance. Undefeated fighters all the way around.

I favor JC/MK most because it's had the most buildup and will go very far to settle a division.

LMAO!!!

Honestly, there have been so many big fights as of late, its hard to just pick one....tho these two are definately above most.

Oscar - Floyd
Mosely - Cotto
Hopkins - Wright
Pac - MAB
Marquez - MAB
Raph M - Vazquez

All of the above could be mentioned. This has been one hell of a year....

First of all, I have to say that it's ****ing excellent to be a boxing fan right now. The mere fact that we are debating which is a bigger fight between Hatton-Mayweather and Kessler-Calzaghe, speaks volumes for how well the sport is doing at the moment. Then you have the fights that Sues2ND has mentioned above. Great year!!

But I have to give the edge to Calzaghe-Kessler.

I disagree. Calzaghe is a long-time beltholder and present king at 168, and Kessler is a career 168 fighter, beltholder and clear No. 1 challenger.

Both Floyd and Hatton are fighting at a weight where neither is as proven. In fact, we know Floyd is above his best weight, and chances are Hatton is too.

It's a little premature to call either matchup "Fight of the Year" since we haven't seen the actual fights yet don't you think?

Right now I guess they're both equal, along with Taylor vs. Pavlik IMO.

Calzaghe is top 10 Kessler top 15-20.

And you're right Mayweather vs Hatton is basically for the #1 spot P4P, which Mayweather already holds.

Hatton will not be PfP No. 1 if he beats Mayweather. I strongly disagree with any notion that he would be.

As said already, at least one of the two is fighting well above his best weight, and the other probably is as well. I'm superstoked for the bout, but Calzaghe vs. Kessler to me is a more true superfight.

But hey, aren't we all just ecstatic that these fights have been made?

Both are absolutely HUGE! The best P4P fighter in the world will be defined. Also, the best 168 pounder will be defined. Both fights are for the REAL title. All of them are undefeated.

They are gigantic. No point labelling one bigger,enjoy em both.

I would say HAtton-Floyd is slightly bigger though!

Both massive fights but lets hope they live up to it unlike the supershites that were PBFvDLH & Winky v Hopkins...............Although I am a massive fan of both Calzaghe & Hatton I do think that Cotto v Mosley is also up there & fascinating for true boxing fans...........
