2014 Fight of the year
There is no clear winner, but for the combination of action and drama, I have to go with the Lucas Matthysse-John Molina fight. Not only was there the unexpected (Molina appearing bigger, and even slightly more durable than Matthysse), there was also the ebb and flow (Mattyhsse being dropped with borderline legal shots, and Molina gradually being worn down). The mix was complete by what was supposed to be at stake... a fight with Broner or Garcia (which Al Haymon seems to have no plans to make happen after all).. left everyone with an improved standing. Matthysse gets a good comeback win, and still has his power, yet looks vulnerable enough that he will no longer be avoided. Molina announces his arrival at 140 with a bang. It's also one of those fights you can watch again and again, and still be entertained, even knowing what is going to happen.
