The Ring magazine's "Fighter of the Year" Award is a gold and silver medal given to the boxer, who, during the year previous, has by his conduct and fighting qualities "earned the esteem of the sports public." The four points which originally governed the award were:

  1. He must be foremost in his contribution to the skill and the science of boxing and he need not be a champion.
  2. The recipient must combine with his high place in the ranking of fighters a similar position as a sportsman.
  3. He must associate with the abilities as a fighter good public relations and a reputation for clean and moral living.
  4. The boxer receiving the award must be recognized as an example to the growing American youth.
