SUGAR RAY ROBINSON AWARD

FIGHTER OF THE YEAR

 

For all awards, the year listed here is the year of the award-winning performance rather than the year the award was presented. For example, Ricky Hatton was Fighter of the Year for 2005, though he was honored at the BWAA’s 2006 ceremony. Starting in the 1990s, the BWAA began naming a "Fighter of the Decade."
