no question Mayweather broke him down Mentally and Physically...but I also question...JUST HOW GOOD WAS RICKY HATTON

I always thought in their PRIME, Junior Witter would have beat Hatton which is probably why Hatton stayed away from him

People can say what they like about Hatton not deserving a shot against Mayweather, but I suppose Mayweather has fought other less deserving fighters than Hatton also. For example, Judah (at tha specific time), Mitchell, Marquez.
The onus has always been on Mayweather to fight the deserving ones. But anyways, he has fought less deserving fighters in that time, and the funny thing is, you can go all the way back to 2004 when Mayweather first moved above 135, and the Hatton fight has been one of his better wins in those 6-7 years, so that should speak volume......well it should either say something about Mayweather or Hatton, I suppose which ever way someone decides to interpret that.

On a side note, GEESH SENTRAL, you're KILLING ME with the big pics of Amanda Helen Tam in your sig. Maybe you can crop some of these smaller ones and use them instead:

In all fairness to SENTRAL they did lose a sig bet with me and I personally requested a racier batch of jpegs as part of the bet (hence the tag line). They will stay for the month and I think considering some of the gay as Klit photo's I could've made them post these are a whole lot nicer to look at, you'd agree with that Hype? laugh.gif

There has not been a more deserving/worthy opponent for Floyd than Hatton at 147. Actually he is the best opponent he has fought since Castillo both on paper & in reality.

Maybe trash wasn't the right phrase? What I meant to say is that Hatton was a pathetic excuse for fighter whose best wins where an over the hill Tzyu and an over the hill and unmotivated Castillo. He did absolutely nothing to deserve that shot against Mayweather so I'm happy that it ruined that no talent having peice of cow dung.



How can Hatton be a pathetic excuse for a fighter?


A pathetic excuse for a fighter is a guy who goes 0-10 with all losses by KO, not a guy who only lost two in forty odd fights.

Haha, true.

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.

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.
