2013 Boxing Awards Pu Pu Platter, Part II

Sick of the drip-drip-drip of year end boxing awards yet? Hard to blame you, hard to blame you. So we'll bring out two enormous platters to conclude our 2013 awards.

2013 Boxing Fighter Of The Year: Timothy Bradley

Tim Bradley started 2013 as a pariah. He emerges from it triumphant. The Queensberry Rules’ Fighter of the Year beat out Floyd Mayweather for the honour, the biggest attraction and best boxer in the sport, and a tier of men who made their names in 2013: Danny Garcia, Guillermo Rigondeaux and Adonis Stevenson. And he did […]

2013 Boxing Fight Of The Year: Timothy Bradley Vs. Ruslan Provodnikov

(Timothy Bradley, left, Ruslan Provodnikov, right) The defining trait of Timothy Bradley vs. Ruslan Provodnikov, both before and during, was how little sense it made.  Choosing an opponent from the ranks of ESPN's Friday Night Fights for Bradley's comeback on HBO after a long layoff?

2013 Fighter Of The Year Nominees

Taking the inimitable pay-per-view record-breaker Floyd Mayweather out of the equation, 2013 was arguably nothing to write home about when measured in terms of outright star power.

(Chad Dawson attempts to rise from being flattened by Adonis Stevenson; photo credit: Graham Hughes/AP) Chad Dawson’s technical decision loss to Jean Pascal in 2010 signaled the end of his tenure as an undefeated fighter. It wasn’t a big deal, though; losses do and should happen in boxing, even if the sport has evolved to […]

(Via Facebook user Dobie Gillis) It was not a dream. Marcos Maidana really did slap the waves off of Adrien Broner’s head. And those were indeed the droids you were looking for.
