    Well, after last nights destruction, and i say destruction of Luis Castillo, Ricky Hatton made some remarks about Pretty Boy Floyd. Call it a hunch, but i have a feeling these two will be fighting in the very near future! Finally a big time fight, and also what can be added as Floyds first loss!

    Ricky of course has to move up to 147 for this fight but he's done it before and won. In terms of hand speed these two are deffinately equal and if Hatton can pull the hook an hold against Mayweather he's going to knock him out, not to mention the hitman is one of the best body punchers in the world!

    Who do you think would win?

    Could be interesting, Hatton certainly is a better fighter when he moves up the weight group. However, he's also starting to become a spent force, so this could end up being the same as Lewis v Tyson; Should have happened years earlier so disappoints.

  10. Hatton did well against Castillo, but Mayweather will destroy him.

    Also, disregarding Mixed Martial Arts as just a humpfest degrades the incredible mix of jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling and judo, that MMA truly is.

    It's like calling (dare I say it) rugby a "gay" sport because you spend half the time sandwiched in between two guys asses and the other half of the time you're being rucked from behind by a forward you just-so-coincidentally call "Bubba."

    MMA is to Boxing what Rugby is to American football: it's less derivative, has more flow, has more variations, and is less watered down and commercialized. Therefore, it takes a greater study of the sport in and of itself to be fully appreciated for what it truly is.

    Although I will admit, they sure do look like they are humping each other. :p

    I wouldnt quite say that MMA is more free flowing, the long pause when they lay on one another is boring


    and it has been confirmed that Hatton will fight Mayweater on November 10th

    im seriously considering buying tickets for this one..

    Floyd hands down. I don't need to justify why.

    With your usual record for predictions, that makes a Hatton win certain.

    Well the last few times I've predicted Mayweather to win, he has, so I really don't see where you're coming from.

    Unless of course you're talking about Rugby which is totally unrelated, and even if you were it would be good if you could back up what you said.

    to be honest i think floyd will get beat, for the following reasons:

    1.) He is fighting hatton who is tough as nails
    2.) He is fighting a fighter who has hand speed the same as mayweather
    3.) Hook an Hold Hatton

    no chance, mayweather likes to dance around and hatton likes to mix it up

    It all depends if Hatton can catch Floyd. If he can, then he'll make things tough on Floyd. But Floyd is SO much faster, and if he dances and sticks like he did against De La Hoya, Hatton has no chance.

    I hope Hatton drills Mayweather, as I don't like PBF's style. He dances too much and punches too little.

    Take care,
    PK

    In terms of hand speed i'd be willing to be they are about the same, and i think hatton packs a little more punch in his.

    Things to worry about with ricky though is how prone he is to cutting on the face. I also dont care for floyd i think he's a douche bag as well, a cocky douche bag.

    Theres no way hattons hands are as fast as floyds

    I'd have to agree.

    It would be interesting to see the match up though. Anything could happen, but likely wont.

    I'll beg to differ on that. Mayweather has obscenely fast hands, faster than Hatton.

    Take care,

    I'm not seeing Hatton coming near beating PBF. PBF's defence is the best P4p: head movement, angles, counter punches etc. he's almost untouchable and dangerous, plus of cource his hand speed and precision would be too much for Ricky.
