pacquiao would demolish him regardless of the size advantage.
they can't make a fight with Floyd so the only option he got for now is Cotto and Mosley
Hatton wasn't much of a draw on the U.S. with the Pacman fight because he got KTFO the first time he fought in the U.S and he had that piss poor performance with Lazcano and struggled with punching bag Paulie while Pacquiao was coming off a TKO win from De La Hoya.
He already agreed to a 145 catchweight which he would never accept before, so yeah he is ready for the fight
He didn't look good because Clottey didn't make him, Clottey is an excellent fighter and he deserves credit for that performance, you would be surprise how much of a war it can become when Pac and Cotto fight, I think Pacman is at a disadvantage on this fight because at WW I think is the division where he stopped carrying his full power, he ain't Roberto Duran and we can't really make a comparison between Hatton and Cotto because the danger they present are different and I think Cotto is way better than Hatton in every department.
Or wouldn't let him. Clotteys defensive skills are way better than Pacquiao.
