The only build ups to a fight which have matched this since are Haye-Wlad and Haye-Chisora.

Happy memories really, apart from the end result of course.
The reason I know I was poisoned was because up to 7.59 and from 8.01 onwards I didn't give him a cat in hell's chance.

Was Saddam still alive then?

And even more remarkably,the gas/poison wore off as soon as the double cenny left my hand.
Stranger than fiction.....but very true.
It's not strange. It's a well documented phenomenon.

It's called britardation. It affects who they bet on, what they say, how they view fighters. It's really sad when it happens, but researches are hopeful that it can be prevented.

All I heard the whole week was Hatton fans. They were a small group but it felt like millions of crazy people, they made their presence felt. The British fans were very passionate but man were alot of them rude.

Looking back at it today the whole build up and the event itself was spectacular, mostly thanks to the British fans.

Rewatch the last few rounds when Floyd started opening up and even using his jab and mixing it up to the body. It was pretty impressive stuff. I watched the fight with a bunch of non-fans rooting for Ricky. By about the 4rd round, it was clear they were in for a long night and I was a drunken loudmouth mess basically saying "I told you so."

Proof that special boxers have tricks up their sleeves which separates the good from the gooder.Morales, Marquez and Mayweather have what is called the x factor which makes them great.That is knowing how to win and what to do to win at any cost. The tricks of the trade. Magician? almost...... because he got away with it but he didn't fool the the real boxing fans that knew he was using illegal tactics.

I reckon the X factor is a BRAIN! Hatton kept doing the same shit over and over again. Floyd was dissecting him picking the right strategy and he found the answer/solution.
