And Defensive fighting, avoiding blows, stick and move, THATS ****ING BOXING, grappling, wrestling, throwing oponants and headbutting, THATS NOT.
Do you **** on Ruiz at all? He's an American fighter who get's "blazed" by just about everyone for his clinching, yet in his last 4 fights he's initiated almost no grabs, whereas Hatton hasn't thrown a shot without a clinch.
Thats right, the average fan loves Hatton but the boxing fanatic often sees things more constructively.
But any American boxer no matter how good will get booed to death in Manchester.
