Default Am I the only one shocked about the betting line on Hatton v.s. Castillo???

Regarding the O/U on the fight ONLY.

-200 to win 100 on OVER 11.5 rounds (the fight WILL go the distance)

-100 to win 150 on UNDER 11.5 rounds (will NOT go the distance)


I am ALL OVER the UNDER here. This is going to be a war and someone ain't finishing this thing.

the thing is that Hatton usually hugs his opponents a lot, this makes a KO unlikely

Not to mention the 10 ounce gloves.

The 10 ounce gloves won't save any lives and they make thing a whole lot less exciting.

No matter what ounce gloves--if you hit like a bull--youre going to feel it. Just hit harder.

Especially surprising with Hatton's tissue paper skin.

Interested on the over/under 11.5. Does that mean in a Chavez v Taylor type situation the over 11.5 would win or lose?

Really???????????????


I think it is going to be a war, as almost all Castillo fights are, and someone's tasting the canvas. I don't see this going the distance and I am hammering down some $$$ on the UNDER 11.5 rounds.

Hatton stopped on cuts 0 times
Castillo stopped on cuts at least once

The ten ounce gloves, supposedly bothered Castillo. He said he didnt know that he was fighting with 10 oz gloves until right before the fight. He also said he couldnt feel when his hands closing with the 10 oz gloves, hopefuly he's acclimated those bigger gloves, I wonder if it makes that big a difference?

I can't believe so many people think this fight is going the distance. Castillo is always game for a brawl and there will be some wicked exchanges in this one. Hatton is not the best defensive fighter and castillo is an excellent and precise puncher. I just cannot see this thing going the distance. Look at both fighter's KO percentage as well. It is up there.

Well I reckon like many others that it's going to points and I also feel the gloves are one of the main reasons why that'll happen . I'd love to know which exact person came up with this idea , and how it's medically safer than the smaller 8 ounce gloves which would have provided us all with more excitement .

I'm tellin' ya guys... this line is a valuable one. Take the UNDER 11.5 rounds at +150. This one won't go the distance.

Not that great of a bet at all. I think Hatton will fight a safer fight than most people expect and it will go the distance.

No way. Castillo will fight one of his wars (he always does) and Hatton will be forced to fight back. Hatton has always been an aggressive fighter and castillo loves to trade. I don't see any way this one goes past the 10th and can't believe this line.
