there have been some good ones, Rios-Alvarado II was awesome, Canelo-Trout was an entertaining scrap, Matthysse-Petersen, Zab Judah-Danny Garcia was surprisingly awesome, Froch-Kessler, Sergio Martinez-Martin Murray was way better than I expected. Bradley-Ruslan was the FOTY so far IMO. Even Floyd-Guerrero was entertaining if you are a fan of the technical side of the game. those are some of the more mainstream fights, im sure there have been other good ones but lesser known fighters

The fights I most enjoyed so far in order are:

1) Froch vs Kessler
2) Alvarez vs Trout
3) Martinez vs Murray
4) Rios vs Alvarado
5) Bradley vs Provodnikov

Note that I probably would have enjoyed the Bradley fight more if I hadn't already known who won when I watched it. Rios vs Alvarado was a little one sided later in the fight. The top three were hard fought and competitive the whole way through.

I'll have to look those fights up and check them out.

it was definitely a fun fight. i would agree that it is probably FOTY so far. maybe lopez vs maidana can give it a run for its money.

There was a "Classic" fight on FUEL yesterday that I checked out. It was Alfredo Angulo vs Archak TerMeliksetain. OMG that was fireworks, well for the 1 round it lasted lol. One of the best and cleanest exchanges I have seen.

not a bad fight but not a classic.this has been seen several times over the years where a top prospect that can punch meets a guy with a fair record.the buildup usualy continues with a action ko.
if you realy want to see round 1 classic between two all time greats in there prime id suggest check out hagler-hearns.it don't get much better then that...another suggestion for round 1 action is a fight between 2 good fighters or decent ones in there prime that are beyond far beyond the prospect level check out mancini vs frias.you should definetly see the difference ..

It's a classic exchange and one of the most entertaining I have ever seen in any combat sport. One guy was landing big and then the tables turn. It's one of the cleanest exchanges I have seen with the number of punches by both men landing square for that brief exchange. At the very least it was a fun watch. I'll check out that 1 round classic, I'm sure it's great.
I have Alvarez vs Hatton on my DVR as well. Worth the watch?

haggler hearns is sick. When the 6 yr old watched that video with me his eyes just kept getting wider and wider.

Bradley vs provodkinov best fight so far
Froch Kessler 2 was gripping. Lebedev vs jones was brutal, Lara vs Angulo was fun. Murray shocked us all vs maravilla.... Personally to me 2013 has had some brilliant fights. 

Cleverly vs Kovalev aug 17. Foty.........

Kovalev is going to knock him out.

I think kovalev, even though he looks a beast, can be out worked by clev. Cleverly is tall, rangy, has a great work rate, a fantastic set of whiskers and great will to win. I think cleverly will shock a lot of people

I hope you are right. I love all thinks UK.  I will be rooting for Cleverly. I know he can take a shot, but I think Kovalev has power that is only matched by very few.

This has been a year with consistently good fights. Even Paulie vs. Broner last night wasn't one sided and had its moments.

I'll go with Garcia v. Zab, but there have been a bunch and I doubt we've seen the fight of the year.

Wlodarczyk vs Chakhkiev was a very good fight that probably flew under the radar.

For the WBC Crusierweight belt.

I agree about kovalevs power, it's similar to Mattysse having power but can be outboxed. If cleverly boxes clever than this fight is very winnable for him. Problem is he likes to get involved too much
