Boxing: Trick or Treaters

TrickOrTreatBOO!… Visions of goblins, ghosts, witches and vampires will soon be upon us.  Halloween is a fun day for all ages.  Choosing a costume has become a fashion statement, however, what everyone enjoys the most is finding out what’s at the bottom of their goodie bags. Hopefully there are more treats than tricks.

In the spirit of fun I’d like to propose a boxing’s trick or treat list of the fights we have seen so far this year.  It is impossible to name every single main event and under-card going back to January, but I will try to mention the fights people have been talking about over the past 10 months.  We also have a few more treats on the way to close out the year, but for now let’s see what the Ouija board will reveal about the bouts of 2014.  Were they treats (exciting as well as interesting) or were they tricks (uneventful and predictable)?

Grab some apple cider and a slice of pumpkin pie, sit back, relax and see if your list of boxing’s trick or treats matches mine.  Happy Haunting.
