Entirely with Napuis on this - laboured gags and cliches - stop it please.

aaah, so it wasnt my imagination then! Its always funny seeing two guys face off who like to be the centre of attention, especially when its two guys who like to think they are comedians like Murray & Hatton.

Last one with two proper comedians though I remember was Billy Connolly & Peter Kay on Parkinson. Billy is old now, & has seen better days, but in his prime he was untouchable. But on Parkinson recently, peter kay came on & was funny as hell & stole the show, & you could see old Billy was raging Whilst the audience laughed at Kay, the only guy not laughing was Billy.
I love looking out for clashes of egos!

Some people might not like to believe it true and allot of his jokes are pretty crap to say the least, but Hatton at times is genuinely a humorous guy.

I agree 100% Dunky. Connolly was forcing a smile and felt uncomfortable that Kay had stolen 'his' show.

This is what I thought when I watched it. You can see that Hatton told jokes over Murray's pre-prepared material a few times which meant Murray couldn't use it. Hatton's genuinely quite quick witted even though a few of his "stock" jokes have been used a few times. Have to admit that I laughed a lot at the "love to see her box" one even though it was a bit obvious.

How many boxers don't refer to themselves in the third person?

It depends on how you look at it, to me all of the guests seemed a little uncomfortable except Beckham. I thought Peter Kay was just dicking around which to me wasn't funny, in fact I found it rather cringe-worthy much like watching Robin Williams or Jim Carey interviewed. If I was on that show I would feel obliged to smile or laugh, but it wouldn't be genuine.

As for Hatton he does interview relatively well for a boxer, but I don't think he's witty, he knows pretty much which direction the interview is heading before he gets there and has relevant jokes. During the build up to his fight with Mayweather, his comment about not missing his children because he'd been hanging out with another six year old was funny. However, the remark that followed shortly after was embarassing and ridiculous, 'oi, Floyd stop touching my dick, you poof!'. You'd never guess he was mates with Bernard Manning, would you?
