Floyd Mayweather Jr. named Fighter of the Year by boxing writers

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been named Fighter of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America for the second time.

Mayweather, 36, fought twice in 2013, thoroughly dominating both of his opponents. Mayweather won a wide decision over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in May at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Four months later, in September at the same venue, Mayweather won a majority decision over Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, taking Alvarez’s junior middleweight title along the way. That was the fight in which judge C.J. Ross unbelievably scored the fight a draw; she took an enormous amount of heat and consequently walked away from the sport. In reality, it was another one-sided victory by Mayweather.

Mayweather, 45-0 with 26 knockouts, is expected to soon announce the identity of his next opponent.
