Whilst you at least you never sound like braggarts, Poms always tend to overrate their opponents. IMO it is why you are often not as successful as sport as you should be. Mayweather is incredibly good, but hardly on another level to Hatton. Have a little more faith in your man!
Actually were doing rather well at the moment. Better than possibly anyother nation if you take into account population size.
As for Hatton, well its simply not plausible to say he's got much of a chance against Floyd, though I hope to be proved wrong.
There's having faith with your man and then there's realistic objectivity.
Also, whilst I'm a fan of Hatton I'm a fan of the sport first.
