Of course it was a risk taking the fight at welterweight, but that was the only way they were going to get Floyd in the ring for a multi-million pound fight.

Before the fight a number of people tipped Hatton and gave him a chance - there's no shame in that at all - no-one knew how Floyd would react to his constant pressure, no-one knew if Floyd could avoid Hatton's body blows. Plus Floyd isn't the biggest, hardest hitting welterweight in the world, and had prepared by going on a TV show.

Also Mayweather had not fought anyone exactly like Hatton before - and fighters who applied pressure in the past, like Castillo and De la Hoya, enjoyed a bit of success.

I didn't think Hatton would win, but I could understand people's arguments in his favour.
Michael Gomez, nead i say more!

I think you will find alot of the more respected broad sheet journos have shared my opinion this week.
