I admit I didn't think in the past that he has it in him, I thought he can only knockout guys late in a fight with a combination of punches.
Just one other point, although I agree with your post in general - Hatton has had 31 KO's in his career. Only 5 have come in the 6th round or further (2 being KO's in the 6th, leaving 3 KO's coming later than the 6th)
Hatton rarely knocks out guys late. If he wins by KO it is usually sub 6 rounds. If a fighter goes beyond 7, look for a UD or in Kostya's case - a retirement.
