25 year wasn't fitter. Tszyu showed the best stamina of his career. He didn't quit because he gassed. He quit because he knew he was '3-4 points behind' and nothing was working for him.
Bollocks about being rusty. In three rounds he found his range and timing on a fast, slick, tricky southpaw. He lost those rounds to Hatton. He then stayed on good terms with Hatton until the last quarter of the fight when Hatton proved too much.
It was a great win. Period. Fighters ALWAYS have excuses.
calm down, you always seem to keep your cool until something is being said about hatton.
