    Inoue-Donaire was such a spectacle.
    Definitely worth a consideration as this year's FOTY.

    Just watched Inoue vs Donaire. Wow, brutal fight. Definitely my pick for FOTY. I can only imagine what it would be like watching live and not already knowing the outcome.

    Inoue - Donaire is a fight of the year candidate. I also thought Loma-Campbell was a hell of a fight.

    I haven't changed my mind, even now I've calmed down, Inoue Vs Donaire is my fight if the year.

    It was real high quality stuff from start to finish, every round was gripping.

    I don't remember the last time I forgot there was actually a referee in the ring, they didn't need him, it was clean, honest and non stop.

    These were damn good scraps. Low level wars between good journeymen, there needs to be more matches like this. Well worth a watch.

    Sorry for quoting myself, but Inoue vs Donaire was the first high-level FOTY candidate that can be argued as better fight than Talarek vs Szymansky

    Joshua vs Ruiz for me....exciting fight..loads of Ebb and flow..fantastic back story....5 knockdowns...amazing upset...corporate machine derailed by the antihero....skill neutralizes size...what is not to love.

    FOTY for me.

    Yeah I agree with Ruiz AJ was "Upset Of The Year".

    But FOTY in my opinion needs both men to bring it, AJ didn't bring, he just got beaten up, Inoue and Donaire both brought it and some more.

    Yep, that's a fair point.

    I guess Ruiz jnr was upset of the year.

    There's been some good fights this year, though I wouldn't say it was a vintage year.

    Pac vs Thurman was another upset, at least to those who thought there's no way an ageing Pac can win.

    Spence jnr vs Porter was decent.

    When was Frampton vs Warrington, as that was quality?
    (Just checked, it was mid December last year...so close)
