Rios and Alvarado in their fight of the year candidate - Harry How
HBO Sports is taking a look at the best boxing fights of 2012, along with full fight videos. Check them all out here and let us know what you think is boxing's fight of the year.
The end of the year is always a time for retrospectives and looking back on the year that was. Right now, HBO Sports is on the retrospective kick with their Best of Boxing 2012 series. They're taking a look at some of the best fights of the year, airing every night all week on HBO. And, generously, they are making those fights available, in full, online.
Check out the HBO Boxing homepage for their picks on the seven best fights of 2012. Here's the list of included fights:
Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto
Sergio Martinez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Andre Berto vs. Robert Guerrero
Adrien Broner vs. Antonio DeMarco
Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson
Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez
Brandon Rios vs. Mike Alvarado
That's a pretty fantastic collection of fights right there. If you missed any of them, they are all worth your time, though for my money, it's those last two that stand out as the year's true best. Unfortunately, those are also the only two HBO does not curently have available on their site. Let's hope they change that soon.
