I think this category should be added to succession box data. I did so for Tony Lopez. I think all other fights should be in succession boxes for both fighters.

Also known as...[edit]

In boxing, instead of using the phrase "Ring Magazine fights of the year" we use simply the word FOTY wich means "Fight Of The Year", so it can be used as a redirection 'cause most people looks for FOTY

2008[edit]

Is Magarito-Cotto really The Ring fight of the year 2008 because boxrec.com has it that in fact Vazquev vs Marquez 3 got FOTY 2008?

I've been trying to google it but I can't find anything else. I want to say on Miguel Cotto's wikipedia entry that it was fight of the year but now I don't know if it was.

Bjermaine (talk) 18:33, 3 January 2013 (UTC)yes, the fights above were for the anniversary issue and not fights that won the actual award. also, the pacquiao-marquez 4 fight only won the fan poll and is not yet the official fight of the year by the ring. they will announce that in the next couple of months.

Flags[edit]

As pro boxers compete as individuals and not as national representatives there is no justification for all those flag icons. I've removed them. See WP:MOSFLAG.  Tigerboy1966  00:57, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
