Default Re: Hatton has never dominated anyone at 147

I've always maintained that Hatton could be a decent welterweight.

However, his choice of opponent first time out, nor his re-hydrating to nearly 160, helped him much. Collazo was southpaw - an area level southpaw would cause Hatton problems - and a decent inside fighter capable of shortening his punches = hard night.

Of course the leading welters of this era like Trinidad, DLH and Mosley would all execute him, but there's no reason why he couldn't be competitive with the next tier guys..... trouble is, many of those are southpaws too
