Sports don’t get any more dramatic nor brutal than the Sweet Science. Today, we look back on best fights on 2015.

Donaire_Juarez

6. NONITO DONAIRE VS. CESAR JUAREZ 12/11/15

Donaire had to unexpectedly dig deep against a journeyman. Unbelievable chin from Juarez, and a great display of heart from both.

Roman Martinez vs Orlando Salido

Round 12

5. ROCKY MARTINEZ VS. ORLANDO SALIDO II 9/12/15

Salido’s body assault had Martinez looking done for in the first half. But Rocky never folded and used a high workrate to stay alive and create a controversial split draw verdict.

Matthysse decision's Provodnikov in a war

4. LUCAS MATTHYSSE VS. RUSLAN PROVODNIKOV  4/18/15

Matthysse realized he was in there with an animal that could withstand his best punches. So the Argentinian slugger wisely adjusted his game plan to become a vicious counter-puncher off the backfoot. It worked wonders early on, but Provodnikov took The Machine into deep, scary waters in the championship rounds.

***************************

Andrzej-Fonfara-vs-Nathan-Cleverly

3.ANDRZEJ FONFARA VS. NATHAN CLEVERLY 10/16/15

These two went toe to toe for 12 rounds. Neither capitulated, but Cleverly gave just a little more ground as Fonfara bulldozed his way to a unanimous decision.

Glowacki_Huck

2. MARCO HUCK VS. KRZYSZTOF GLOWACKI 8/14/15

Perhaps the greatest comeback of the year as Glowacki, in his first big stepup fight, comes off the deck to stop former champion Marco Huck.

  1. FRANCISCO VARGAS VS. TAKASHI MIURA 11/21/15

Miura nearly goes out in round one. Then he sends Vargas airborne for a knockdown in the fourth. They proceed to beat the hell out of each other with Miura appearing to be the stronger one. Then Vargas hits gold with a big knockdown in the ninth that leads to the exciting upset finish. This fight had it all.
