Ricardo Fatton will probably come out SLUGGING like the "People's Champ" is known for...and that's gonna be GREAT! I hope he lands a BOOOOOOOOOMB!

If it goes past 5 though, like my boy ants said, Mayweather will pitter-patter out a "W."

i'm a monster
i'm a maven
i know this world is changin'
never gave in
never gave up
i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

So much for boxing being dead, what bullshit. Taylor/Pavlik, Cotto/Mosely, The Pac man bringing the goods, all in all great year for boxing. MMA has forced them to put together some quality fights.

Mayweather does his usual dance job and wins a decision. Hopefully Hatton has watched the Judda, Castillo and De La Hoya fights, but I can't see him pressuring the bigger man or even using his jab effectively. He won't be able to hug and brawl floyd either. But come on lads RICKY FUKIN HATTON. I hope he kos his ass and we get a real barn burner with him and Cotto.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PweMADtEmWI English fans are the best. Going to be an unreal atmosphere for this fight.

So did De La Hoya and most people think that fight shouldn't have even been a split decision.

At least OScar made a fight of it. If he didn't wear out at the end, he could have pulled it off. Floyd never initiates in a fight, and is entirely a defense first fighter. Then he has the guts to compare himself to Ali. So called boxing purest today will praise Floyd's style, but its boring as hell and nobody likes it. Agression is a category of scoring.

His best fight was against Gatti, which I hated to watch. He brutally picked him apart. Much being Gatti's fault, as he always left himself opened too much.

Thats part of Floyd's style though, making people tired by being defensive. If you keep punching and either not hitting anything or his arms the whole time its gonna get you tired. Floyd has 24 knockouts, so he can bring the fight, he is just smart and lets the other guy get tired first.

Why don't people like mayweather? Is it because he is cocky? He has a right to be at 38-0. And if you think he is cocky watch the weigh in and then see if your opinion on Hatton changes.

He is cocky as shit, he acts like a 2 year old and last but not least he totally dissed MMA before his fight wit De La Hoya.

Floyd already said that he said those things about mma to sell tickets. And Hatton has been acting way more cocky than Mayweather. Yeah Floyd is out there but the man has been able to back up what he has said. He has got skills and there are guys in mma that are cocky.
