I don't think Hatton is fun to watch. He's a smart boxer and very gritty but doesn't really put on a show like a lot of guys do.

I think Hatton will just clutch Mayweather the entire fight.


He's certainly entertaining in this video.

I'll check it out. I've seen a number of his fights and he does a lot of clutching thus taking away a lot of the reach/power advantage from his opponents.

Personally, I think Miguel Cotto is the best fighter in that group and also the most fun to watch.

I must admit I like his entrance song. Fantastic version of Blue Moon even though it's Man Citeh's anthem:

This fight starts at 4am over here, but I got a few guys coming round with a few beers to enjoy the fight.

Dont think Mayweather will have it as easy as you guys seem to expect, but we shall see.

Anybody buying the fight pover there, heard it was $55, ouch. :-P

Mayweather has a 6 or 7 inch reach advantage over Hatton. I don't think it'll be close.

I think Hatton will take away Mayweather's reach by clutching the entire fight. Should be interesting. I'm not paying to watch it and I have my company party tonight to go to anyway but I'll check back here to see how it went.

I do not think Hatton can neutralize the reach for an entire fight by clutching. Firstly, I think that the ref will be all over him. Secondly, PBF's foot speed and all around ring presence is too much for Hatton to deal with and will make it very tough to just clutch the whole fight.
