***Official Floyd Mayweather vs. Ricky Hatton Discussion Thread***


Quote:
Floyd Mayweather and Ricky Hatton are rightfully recognized as two of the most exciting fighters in boxing today. Each is at the peak of his career and has yet to experience defeat. Mayweather relies on his speed, agility and unsurpassed natural talent. By contrast, Hatton is a brawler who fights with a relentless fury that overwhelms his opponents. In one of the most anticipated match-ups of undefeated champions this decade, two men from two different worlds come together with one goal in mind…remain undefeated and earn the right to be called the best! HBO Pay-Per-View® is excited to present "Floyd Mayweather vs. Ricky Hatton: Undefeated" Saturday, December 8, 2007, Live on Pay-Per-View.

If anyone would like to discuss the Hatton/Mayweather super fight tonight, feel free to do it here. I might be hitting a bar to watch it, so I may not be on, but I am down to talk some sweet science when I get back.

i'd love for hatton to destroy mayweather early, but this is going to be a very tough fight for him.

if it goes past the 5th round, you gotta give it to mayweather.

^I've got Mayweather stopping Hatton late in the fight Anton.

I feel that if Mayweather comes out, looking like he has in the past, Hatton is fairly easy to hit, and Floyd has a chance of finishing this fight. Otherwise, Floyd by UD.

Hatton does have a chance to connect and put Floyd on his ass though.

yea, but if that does happen, i feel like it's gonna be early in the fight because it wont take long for mayweather to adjust, cover up, and tire hatton out.

realistically, i see mayweather's defense frustrating the hell out of hatton and mayweather cruising to a UD.

as much as it sucks, that's the likely finish.

Agreed. I guess I am just being to optimistic as usual, but I am still going to bet on Mayweather stopping it late. I will of course also bet on Floyd by UD, but I am getting such good odds on him stopping the fight that I got to take them.

I don't really see Hatton finishing Floyd. I mean Floyd has fought some big guys in his last few fights and hasn't had a problem and Hatton is a 140 fighter and in his only fight at 147 he looked bad.

I think Floyd wins a dominate decision.

I'm not a fan of either boxer, but I do hope that Hatton puts Mayweather's fuse out.

The whole match up is a good one for Mayweather. Hatton is easy to hit and he should be able to get plenty of shots on him, but I don't think Floyd can put him away...even late in the fight. I say Mayweather by UD.

Hatton has to land a huge shot to win.
