Boxing News Readers’ Awards: Fight of the Year Number 5

Tommy Coyle w rsf 12 Daniel Brizuela

TOMMY COYLE and Daniel Brizuela served up an eight-knockdown feast in Hull that became your No.5 Fight of the Year.

The February 22 humdinger was made all the better because the relentless thrills were largely unexpected, and build interest in a potential Coyle-Luke Campbell showdown. They were dropped four times each and both were docked points for infractions before Tommy claimed victory with just two minutes of the 36 remaining.

The ending was perhaps harsh on the Argentinian but few spectators denied they had just witnessed a great fight.
