Default What Hatton result will impress most tonight?

Obviously a thirty second knockout would look good on paper, but it will tell us very little.

In reality what will be the result that impresses most?

Would we like an early KO?

Or would a decisive points win be the best result?

Thoughts and opinions?!

Stoppage in early rounds for most i'd say. But i think a one sided win and late stoppage is better because it shows Hatton in later stages so answers a few more questions of him.

Yea. Stoppage inside 4 will be most impressive.. I can't help think that Ricky was on the slide before he met Pacquiao... over 3 years out and with all his weight issues I think any kind of win would be an exellent result. I just can't see it myself.. Im expecting to see a laboured points win or for Ricky to get stopped late on.. Sorry.

I think its a shame that most of us haven't seen more of the opponent (can't be arsed to even try and spell the chaps name! ) because it gives us little to compare the result with.

Just the Paulie fight for comparison really.

I think if Hatton wins early people will question the opponent, I think if Hatton struggles on points people will doubt Ricky!!!

I would be very happy with a five or six round KO for Ricky.

I'd like to see some good exchanges and I'd like to see how much speed and agility Hatton has left.

I'd like to see Ricky pushed a little to guage his stamina as well.

I suppose the one thing we haven't discussed is cuts!

I know Ricky got them under control for the last half of his career but he has got pretty dodgy skin.

Will all the punches catch up?

Has the lifestyle over the past three years and his age affected his skin?

This guy tonight may just have the tools to cut Ricky?

Stoppage around the 6th

couple rounds to shake off the rust, and then a betdown

VERY unlikely though

I had a bet on the ukranian chap.. Round 8 win 50/1 I thought it was a cracking price... More for a bit of fun than anything. The odds on Ricky winning have drifted too I noticed..

Off topic slightly but Flintoff it 5/4 to win next week which I thought was a pretty good price.. ALthough no one knows the opponent i'm sure its one they've picked to make sure freddie gets a win.

The old Hatton would put it on this guy and stop him with a left hook to the body or head Maussa style.

Hattons mauling and brawling style can make him look sloppy, it did in his prime and if it does now then people will scream shot and it will appear that way.

He'll want to win by KO or even a decision but most importantly it will need to look clean.
