Default Re: Hatton - Collazo

It's amaznig how the end of a fight changes peoples opinions. If one boxer wins the first 8 easily, then his opponent wins the last 4 decisively, people have the last rounds in their minds. They probably score it closer than it should be.

It's the same with singular rounds. I remember Leonard finishing every round strong, but in reality, Hagler won 2 minutes of those rounds. The finish was fresh in the judges minds, so he won rounds he should have lost.

I think this fight is another example of this. it was close, but because of the way it ended, I think it has effected peoples thoughts on the entire fight. Watch the first 10 rounds, and it's clear than Hatton wins 7, including the knockdown.
