there was only one thing that stunned Hatton and led to a KO, and it wasn't Floyd...

Floyd was brilliant in that Hatton fight. I for one thought Floyd would strictly stick to just boxing, leading with a stiff jab , and hooking Hatton every time he tried to go to the body. Instead Floyd played Hatton's game of fighting in the inside and going to the body. He even used some roughhouse tactics to rattle Ricky and played possum when he needed to frustrate Hatton. It showed Floyd's inside game was impregnable against a skilled inside fighter and great body puncher. One of my favorite fights to watch on the DVR, you can see when Floyd adjusted after Hatton really put the pressure on Mayweather.

i can't see cotto getting gattied....i think pac will though. btw. u seriously overrate hatton. he was never in the fight against floyd. he was done after the collazo fight. hatton isn't half the fighter cotto is...and cotto has a much bigger bag of tricks than castillo. castillo only knew how to fight one way. cotto is a multi-faceted fighter.

we'll see what happens fight night.



Cotto lacks resiliency and gets hit quite a bit. Hatton's resume at 140 is better than Cotto's at 140.

Cotto gets his face torn out by Margarito, Clottey, Pacman and let's not forget what Torres did to him. Almost had him out, had him stumbling like a queer for a round and half. Heck, even Malignagii with a busted up face was stunning him here and there in the final rounds.

Cotto eats too many shots in combos and he lacks resiliency.

Mosley eats shots but one at a time and he is tough. Cotto will eat shots in combos and he'll get busted up

i thought collazo won that fight and got robbed of being the first person to drop hatton. he definitely wasn't the same after that one.


Hatton dropped Collazo not the other way around and that wasn't really a hard knockdown or anything, maybe more an off balance thing.

who thought marquez was done? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Probably a nuthugger who thinks that EVERY fighter that Floyd fights is never the same afterwards...as we've been hearing forever. Marquez lost nothing after that fight, in fact, that fight helped him more than it hurt him. It was a win/win (reputation wise), and it looks quite goofy on Floyd's record.

Huh?! If anything, Cotto possibly edges it.

I never thought 147 was a good weight for hatton even though Floyd wasn't a big welterweight at the time. He has filled out since then.

But Floyd took some notes from og bhop for that fight. Pot shot, clinch, repeat. The speed was too much the clean shots took their toll the clinching and missing shots tired him and he eventually started breaking down.

Cotto cannot take clean shots. But he has good timing and has looked good against speed fighters in the past. But the problem is he can't take clean shots and once he genuinely hurt or put down he completely abandons his gameplan and starts running. Plus he has been much slower at 154 and he hasn't seemed to gotten much stronger against sub-par opposition. He was much stronger and quicker at 147 with his uncle at his corner. He was a beast and his performance against mosley is still one of the more impressive I have seen. Once he more than likely got plastered and his corner broke down he was finished. To this day I think his corner, without the issues, coached him best. He would have been a beast if marg never (probably) cheated. But in my opinion he still wouldn't have beaten Floyd.

Anyone remember the Jesus Chavez fight? Floyd definitely was NOT in a Barcalounger during that fight. He eventually stopped him, as Chavez's corner stopped the fight in b/t rounds, but IMO, this was one of Floyd's toughest fights.

As far as Cotto, his MAJOR obstacle is fuel efficiency. He needs some of that "flex fuel" for this fight, as we all can guess, if he gets winded against Floyd....

Oh yeah, thought about this the other day. Define irony: Floyd fighting (and subsequently whitewashing) Diego Corrales, in the last fight prior to Chico going to jail for......you guessed it, domestic violence against the mother of his child (who was pregnant at the time)....only to be in an eerily situation, some 11 years later. Let's hope the outcome isn't consistent.

Yeah, and I swear Floyd made some statement like he was gonna win the Corrales fight for "all the battered women out there" or some shit?! Irony is a bitch...
