    Ok here's my picks and why.


    1. Fighter of the year. Kelly Pavlik. True Floyd's wins stack up nicely but he was already the p4p best so I kind of expect it from him. Kelly came from nowhere to become one of the most popular and exciting fighters in the sport. I think when people look back on 2007 the fighter they say who most came of age will be Kelly Pavlik.

    2. Fight of the year. Well I loved the Mormeck Haye rematch but I'm going to go with Pavlik Taylor. It was for the middleweight belt, the most glamourous non heavyweight division and he won in spectacular style after picking himself up off the canvas. Huge win against a champion who although much maligned was still in his fighting prime.

    3. Round of the year, Codrington vs Bika Round 1. Tremendous action, how the pendulum swung in that round!

    4. Knock out of the year. Floyd vs Hatton. Ok technically he got up but he was effectively out when he got punched into the turnbuckle and it sure was a highlight reel KO.

    5. Upset of the year

    I'll probably forget somebody but I'd say Nonito Donaire's stunning one punch KO win over Vic Darchinyan was one I never saw coming. Pavlik win over Taylor was good but half the boxing world was picking him to beat Taylor.

    6. Comeback of the year

    Haye vs Mormeck. It could well have been Pavlik but I don't want to give him every award. Beside's Haye's win was on foreign soil and Mormeck was also the undisputed champ. Great win for Haye after being knocked down.

    7. Event of the year
    Hatton vs Mayweather. Floyd's fight with Oscar may have been bigger in terms of PPV's but certainly the Hatton fans made this night something special. The whole buildup was great too.

    8. Worst fight of the year
    Jeff Lacy vs Peter Manfredo. Lacy has gone from America's hottest fighter to a shell of his former self. It was depressing to watch.

    9. Prospect of the year. Amir Khan, has his critics but show me a more exciting fighter in the world at his age? Linares ran him close but as a world champ I guess he's no longer a prospect. Khan delivers dazzling speed with obvious power. He's vulnurable but that makes him exciting. He's a super talent.

    1. Fighter of the year-[b]Kelly Pavlik--Pavlik beat one of the most feared punchers then followed it by claiming the MW throne

    2. Fight of the year- Joe Calzaghe Vs Mikkel Kessler They made the fight happen, Kessler went into Hostile territory and Calzaghe performed like a star, there was not a dull moment in the fight and in honesty no one was sure who was going to come out on top

    3. Round of the year- Vazquez-Marquez round 3 Kind of reminded me of Hagler Vs Hearns...Vazquez in danger of fight being stopped on cuts so it was all or nothing

    4. Knock out of the year-Pavlik over Taylor/// Pavlik over Miranda He dispatched to feared slugger then crumpled a P4P fighter in the corner

    5. Upset of the year- Doniare over Darchinyan IMO it was not that big of an upset but the fact it came by 1 punch!

    6. Comeback of the year- Vernon Forrest Still think he is BORING...but he managed to comeback after obscurity to become champion again (til he signs with Mayorga)

    7. Event of the year - Mayweather Vs Hatton This had the hype of the 1970's HW and 1980's WW Superfights...been a long time since people have been that excited for a fight

    8. Worst fight of the year- Jeff Lacy Vs Peter Manfredo This was just pitiful especially since it was on the undercard of the biggest fight of the year

    9. Prospect of the year-Eddie Chambers, His win over Brock let us know he could be a force in the HW division. He is already a guy people are talking about to beat one of the smaller champions

    10. Jermain Taylor over Corey Spinks--Corey Stepped up the smaller man, stood in, Made Taylor look bad and dictaded the fight to his terms.

    The following people PLEASE NOTE that #6 Comeback of the year should infact be "Comeback fighter of the year"
    Meaning a fighter who might have been gone last year or disappeared but shined again this year. Or a fighter who might have had a bad 2005, 2006 but cameback and had a good 2007.
    So please edit your posts to correct the nominee.

    6. Comeback of the year- Pavlik coming back after 2nd round against Taylor
    7. Event of the year - Hatton doing a clothed mooning of Cortez and Mayweather last night, very strange
    8. Worst fight of the year- I'll say Manfredo/Lacy as it is fresh in my mind.
    9. Prospect of the year- Jorge Linares
    1. Fighter of the Year- Pavlik
    2. Fight of the Year- Vasquez Marquez

    5. Upset- Donaire.
    6. Comback of the Year: Career Wise?? Penalosa
    7. Event: Calzaghe/Kessler HUGE BUILDUP.
    8. Worst Fight: Couple of heavywieghts oN Showtime 2 or 3 weeks ago/ Casmoyer fight
    9. Prospect of the Year: I am going to have to go with Khan too. Thought he was over-rated. Still might be. That is a tough wieght class to hide in though.
