2010 was an up and down year for the sport of boxing. Many of the biggest and most anticipated fights – most notably the contest between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather – never took place, and left boxing fans craving more. Meanwhile, the heavyweight division largely continued to be uneventful.

But many other big fights did take place, and there was lots to talk about in terms of excitement and entertainment. Just think, in the last few weeks alone we saw Juan Manuel Lopez vs. Rafael Marquez, we saw the Super Six wrap up the group stages, we saw a bantamweight tournament, Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana, Sergio Martinez vs. Paul Williams II and a variety of other intriguing contests. That’s a close to the year that would make any boxing fan happy!

Moving on from there, next year there are already a few big things lined up, with the finals for both of the aforementioned tournaments – the Super Six and the bantamweight tournament, a big start of the year fight between Timothy Bradley and Devon Alexander, and much more. Hopefully that early momentum can keep building up, and more megafights can get made that keep us on the edges of our seats.

In the meantime, relive all of the 2010 boxing action above, and take a look at all of our awards. Feel free to chime in with your own opinions and comments, and don’t be shy about who you think should or should not have won! That’s part of the fun of being involved with the sport and being a fan of boxing.
