PBF better watch what he signs though as I don't see him fighting pass Pacman. Not sure why I say that but for $100 million, King will need 3-5 fights to make his $$$ back! Does anyone see him fighting more than 2-3 fights...I am having a hard time picturing that myself! Bring on Pacman vs PBF & fuck Margacheato & his cheating ass & his bullshit belt! Thoughts y'all?

It was a rhetorical question...I, like many others, truly consider the answer to be Baldomir.

You, and many other, would answer the question wrong then.

If this were Jeopardy and you threw out the name Carlos Baldomir, I might reply:

Who was the last fighter that Mayweather faced in a non-GBP event?

OK...Well to me and others Hatton was working under the GBP promotional banner as a GBP fighter with the intention of sticking with them. We can just disagree that he was basically a Golden Boy fighter at that point in time.

But he WAS NOT a GBP fighter...and neither was Floyd Mayweather...but both were fighting in an event promoted by GBP. So basically, you're saying that BECAUSE Hatton eventually DID sign with GBP, that ESSENTIALLY means he was a GBP fighter when he fought Floyd, and that's simply not true. I mean, if that IS true, then BASICALLY, Manny Pacquiao is a Golden Boy fighter too....hence the reason why GBP still lists him on their website and still collects a percentage from him when he fights. Heck, technically, Manny Pacquiao is more of a GBP fighter than Ricky Hatton ever was. LOL. But whatever...we can move along.

We already said that as a technicality you could say he was not...but he basically was as it was the first time he worked with and under, and shortly after signed with, GBP never working with another promoter. It was a GBP card, and Hatton who was promoterless (sans his own unlicensed promotional outfit) signed with GBP directly after that for a multi fight deal, after working under them for a first fight...that is why we are saying that Hatton was a GBP fighter at the time.

As for Pac, I don't recall GBP having anything to do with the promotion for Clottey...or Cotto...and I would think they won't be involved in the Margarito fight.

This is why he is characterized as a GBP fighter in the Hatton fight. I understand why you don't see it that way...and that's fine, have at it, but just as you are not going to agree with anyone who is saying Hatton really was a GBP fighter for the Floyd fight - those of us who see / saw Hatton as a GBP fighter at the time of the Floyd fight are not going to suspend that notion and agree that Hatton was not a GBP fighter.
