2014 Fighter of the year
Terrance Crawford. You can make a case for GGG, or Sergei Kovalev, but I like to look at where they were, vs where they started. Kovalev's win over Hopkins was very impressive, but we were just as scared of this big bomber 12 months ago when he was shellacking Ismail Sillakh. With Stevenson, pascal, Bedterbiev, this division will remian interesting. GGG has HBo digging for more middleweight contenders to feed to Golovkin, but he is only grown in hype in the last 12 months. Crawford went from an uninspiring contender to the best lightweight in the world with dominant and exciting wins over the toughest most avoided guys in his division. He did so, as a hometown hero, bring boxing back to an area where it was long neglected.
