Watching the FLoyd and Ricky Hatton fight there are somethings that I have notice, here are some and if you would like to add on please do

Floyd MJ: Seemed really focused and relaxed going into the fight. It was interesting that he paid no mind to Hopkins or Shane as he was walking around the ring. The beginning of the rounds Floyd seemed a little surprised how Ricky came out, of course he adjusted beautifully but in the beginning he was looking for his rhythm and man did he found it.

Ricky: Started off okay and gased out towards the later rounds. It seemed he had one game plan and there was no plan B, which hurt him in the end. He left his defense drop and became careless. The first 5 rounds he gave were very exciting. Both fighters put on a great fight.

Joe Cortiz: Was too much into the fight. When Ricky was trying to fight in the inside he kept interfering and he taking a point away from Hatton was really stupid. Joe needed to fall back and let the fighters fight. No one wanted to see Joe.

Roger M.: Kept giving the same instruction which proved to be the difference in the fight but my favorite thing he said "Walk that ho down and shoot that shit up the middle." Straight right hands all day!

Announcers: Stewart kept saying how great Ricky looked but as Floyd began picking Ricky apart he changed his stance. Merchant seemed so disinterested in the fight especially when Floyd was finding his rhythm. Lederman's card was awful! Just awful! Jim Lampley was entertaining at times

Crowd: Was hyped! Especially the Brits. Tyrese was looking NICE!!!!!!!!!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/yahoo.gif)

Stewart was spot on with his commentary in the hatton fight
1. He said Ricky was putting a lot of pressure on Floyd which gave Floyd some problems.
2. He said Ricky couldn't afford to get tired cause Floyd would pick him apart

So I think Stewart did a great Job in that fight.

Ricky Hatton just couldn't fight his fight thanks to Joe "The Master Meddler" Cortez. All Hatton had that night was his weird footwrok and those wild punches from the outside (which he doesn't fight well from), but after Floyd figured out that Hatton was just coming in straight lines...Hatton had nothing left but those wild punches. After those easy-to-deflect punches of his were neutralized...it was a wrap. The Hatton fans made the fight that much more worth watching...even to this day!

What about Tyrese? My only criticism was that he took forever and year for him to sing the national anthem but then again looking at tyrese for a long amount of time never hurt anyone. lol

He looked great right?
Back to the fight: Did you think Floyd would knock him out?
