Welcome to the 7poundbag End of the Year Spectacular.
Every Day from now until the New Year, a different Question about what was will be answered by the staff. I answered no followup questions and some questions can be taken different ways. Thus allowing the writer to answer how he or she felt.
That gives you, dear Reader, some new Content while allowing those of us that enjoy our families, or at least the food that comes with them, some time to partake.
Sports Person of the Year?
Mayweather Jr. I first saw this argument from Sugar Ray Leonard, on Sports Illustrated’s website, and I have to agree with him. Mayweather captivates fans of boxing, as well as casual fans, and he wins. Not only does he win, but he wins in dominating fashion. His two fights this year against Robert Guerrero and Canelo Alvarez were master class. He picked the two fighters apart and hardly broke a sweat. Even if you hate his brash antics, he makes you respect him (in a strange way) with the way he methodically picks apart his opponents. Also, out of the ring he is a respected person in his sport, as well as a contributor to the community.
He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in August of 2012, but continued to work to make a difference in the game. He did it with class and dignity… and he is my sportsperson of the year.
