Re: Floyd vs Hatton pre fight analysis
Mayweather would have to fight an active fight, or else he just might lose the decision because of Hatton's workrate and agressiveness...Oscar almost got the decision for the same reasons only he wasn't active enough (in the later rounds)..so it wasn't relevant enough against Floyd's clean punches and ring generalship.
I think young Hatton can keep the pressure going for the full 12 though, especially if you keep in mind he trains best for the big fights, it obviously motivates him. This means Mayweather would have to show a bit more aggression as well, and have a higher punch output to negate Hatton's scoring on pressure. I can't see Ricky stopping Floyd though.
IF Floyd really goes to work and puts combinations together he could win a late TKO victory. If he tries to put on a defensive masterpiece again and fights the way he did against Oscar, he could win, but he could very well lose the decision too...
Let's just hope he keeps that in mind and shows us a flash of the old Floyd. That way Mayweather/Hatton could be a very entertaining fight.
