Top Rank has been releasing highlight videos for their 2012 boxing award candidates. Right here, you can see the clip they’ve put together for their 2012 Fighter of the Year candidates, Nonito Donaire and Juan Manuel Marquez. Of course, it’s no secret that we handed out our 2012 Fighter of the Year award already, and Donaire did indeed get the nod.
He was a clear-cut choice for the award, and we actually also had Marquez as a runner-up for his KO of the Year over arch-rival Manny Pacquiao. But you can still enjoy the highlight video of each man in action below.

2012 was certainly the year of the Filipino Flash. Whose year will it be in 2013? We’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out over the coming year. Enjoy Top Rank’s Fighter of the Year candidates and their video highlights above.
