It usually works that if you're not A grade, you automatically suck.


Being European will get you to the dung heap quicker.

I would say that based on who he beat, Hatton was a either a B+ or A- fighter, since he was able to beat pure B fighters such as Tackie, Lazcano, Urango and Malignaggi.

Co-sign.


Unfortunately, being a B+ fighter on these boards seems to be derogatory instead of a compliment. A B+ fighter is about thirty levels above being a journeymen and a shitty novice, and only one level below Mayweather and Pacquiao, so why Hatton gets shit for being as good as he was (or wasn't) is beyond me, especially when other B level fighters like Gatti, Corrales, Cotto et al get so much love.

This post is close to my heart.

Something's wrong with my search engine or I'd look up that old new years post from a couple years ago.

As for Hatton -- B+ fighter I'd say. His win over Tszyu was tainted as shit the way it went down but I do believe Ricky would have won even without the queen mum fucking poor KT into a stupor before the bout. Ricky had it that night, and Kostya didn't.

I will also always appreciate Hatton for the unintentional comedy he provided us all in his two KO losses.

Again, if I had search engine working properly I'd look up that old Pac-Hatton thread. (ahem, CEO)

Pac put Hatton down fast because of the clash of styles. Hatton likes to stand and trade..and with Pacquiao, that just ain't guna cut it. Mayweather as we all know is a defensive fighter with not as much power. So it took him longer to put Hatton down, but he had to go through a worse beating.
