The highly established, albeit some what controversial, Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) held their 2014 awards ceremony this past Thursday and honoured various fighters who fought in the US in 2013.
For us the most notable award was the Fight of the Year award, which was given to the thrilling encounter between Ruslan Provodnikov and Timothy Bradley. The bout, one of the best fights in recent years, was with out a doubt the best fight on American soil and a worth winner.
A second notable award was given to Manny Pacquiao's legendary trainer Freddie Roach who has really dominated the "Trainer of the Year" award in recent years.
As well as those two awards their was also an appearance from Japanese star Ryota Murata who was photographed with American legend Mike Tyson who appears to be a much calmer man than the one who once bit off the ear of Evander Holyfield.
