you laugh at Hatton, you don't think he is a badddd MF as you put it

i think my points have plenty of relevance

i know FMW showed him some respect - so should you

hatton put up a great fight. the ref was a bit annoying in the first few rounds, but he warned both of them (floyd for the elbow and hatton for the back of the head punches). but keep in mind, that unlike mma, in boxing, if you clinch, the ref breaks it up. i get that hattons style is to box on the inside, but when u grab the other fighter, you get broken up. i personally dont think the ref did a bad job. i dont think he shouldve deducted any points from hatton, and even then, he shouldve deducted some from mayweather for elbows on the inside. however, i dont think that changes the outcome of the fight. yea the ref was a little bit of a keener, but mayweather won that fair and square.

go here to watch the entire fight:

Yes, he did. I don't think i've seen PBF get hit so many clean times before. Hatton is a very good fighter...more so than I thought before the fight.


yeah i thought floyd was gonna run through him. man was i wrong, i cant wait to see hatton fight again, he was fast, and at times, dare-i-say, faster than mayweather... floyd's left hook is fuckin deadly tho!

that was a great fight

Hatton seems like a nice guy. And Floyd really turns up the a-hole quotient to promote a fight. But I was more annoyed by the British fans than anything. Booing during the national anthem. And then the whining about the ref. Cortez did a good job. Hatton's just a dirty fighter. The British fans made it fun seeing Hatton's head get bounced off the turnbuckle.

its nothing personal, it happens a lot in football (soccer) - its like to say we are louder than you, i'm guessing it was aimed more at floyd to intimidate him more than a nation.

they stood up and applauded floyd afterwards though.
