Re: Dont Fight Hatton On The Inside!!pbf Is The Man
Tszyu's corner said to him, 'what are you doing mate? stop fighting on the inside. stiff jab, throw more rights'.
Tszyu simply didn't do it though till he'd wasted too much energy. He fought arrogantly in my opinion. He seemed happy to wrestle Hatton for the first three rounds and got tired. I think he suddenly realised his predicament and by then it was too late. You don't find a second burst of energy in a fight like that at 35 years of age with only two fights in four years.
Tszyu said in his post-fight conference 'I thought I could fight his fight on the inside. I did not listen to my corner. I could not twist my jab. I don't know why.'
Tszyu definitely showed how to set up Hatton though in those middle rounds before fading. I do feel a fitter boxer like Mayweather would be able to do it successfully. But damn, I'd like to see it! Mayweather doesn't hit like Tszyu and Hatton is fast on his feet.
Always thought if Tszyu had rematched Hatton immediately he had a good shot.
Congrats to Hatton!
