My year-end awards
Knockout of the Year- Alexander Povetkin KO5 Dillian Whyte. It's an old cliche but this was a classic instance of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. Whyte, the clear favorite, had dropped Povetkin twice in the fourth round and was looking to finish in the fifth. Instead, Povetkin landed a bomb of an uppercut 30 seconds in and finished the fight victorious with that one lone punch.
Round of the Year- Jose Zepeda vs Ivan Baranchyk, Round 5. A slugfest where both fighters had been down multiple times coming into this round. Ivan swung away as Round 5 star
