Default A thing about Hatton..

We should congratulate Hatton in his win. But there's one thing i wanted to point out.

He's a completely classy guy in the same sense as Shane Mosley and it's just great to see a young fighter as humble as Hatton.

Classy thing to say about Corrales.

Max Kellerman was right, he's like the Anti-Mayweather which is very true.

Hatton is a class act, and great fighter.

I'll never understand why some boxing fans don't like him.

Pretty much the new Micky Ward with more talent.

Relentless body attack and a nice humble guy.

I agree.

His style bores me to tears.

Cotto is far more exciting.

Just saying that some people truly hate Ricky Hatton, and it isn't all just because of his style.

I'm sure Hatton isn't losing sleep because some people on the internet have an unexplainable obsession with him.

I doubt anyone here "truly hates" Ricky Hatton. I mean, who really knows the guy. He is a professional athlete.

Anyone who hates him for reasons other than his fighting is probably either a racist, a huge fan of some fighter he defeated, or completely unreasonable. Any one of those reasons make them not worth talking to.

Still, I doubt anyone here dislikes him for reasons other than they don't like to watch him fight.

Default Re: A thing about Hatton..

I like Ricky Hatton, think he's a stand-up guy, trains his ass off, shows much love to his fans, is pretty clever, and respectful. That said, its hard to overlook his grappling style of boxing (in his two biggest fights, KT & JLC) and the FACT that he's gotten favorable treatment from the refs in BOTH of the above-mentioned fights.

I was VERY disappointed w/last night's fight! JLC looked a little wobbly, the first couple of rounds, but when he DOES start working his way into the fight, in the third, Joe "I'm fair but firm" [BULL****!] Cortez--after having said in front of EVERYONE that Hatton's shorts were high--starts warning JLC for phantom low blows! There were shades of Manchester and KT, when Hatton looked over at Cortez, after getting hit with a shot clearly NOT low, as if to say, "Hey, mate, you're not gonna let him hit me with body shots, are you?" . Then, at the beginning of the fourth he IMMEDIATELY deducts a point for a shot that wasn't even close to being low! Hatton, meanwhile, contrary to BOXING rules, uses non-stop grappling to maul JLC--with ZERO warnings from Joe "I'm a tool" Cortez. So, we have a fight where one fighter (JLC) is not allowed to throw body-shots, while the other can hold/hit, at will.

I think JLC knew the 'fix' was in, and that he was gonna get DQ'd, if he tried to work the body--which HAD to be a big part of his game plan. I believe Hatton landed a great body shot, but that JLC just stayed down. I hate to see that, and even SAY it, but the bias was unmistakable. Boxing is getting to be as bad as pro-wrestling. It's getting harder and harder to support it, and I've lost a TON of respect (like it HAD much left, anyways!) for the sport with **** like PBF/DLH, Spinks/JT, and, now, Hatton/JLC.

For the Hatton fans: again, don't get me wrong, nothing against Hatton--he's just maximizing the advantages he's being given--he's a class act, outside the ring, and does what he has to, to win, inside. Its just a side effect of the crookedness of the sanctioning bodies, networks, promoters, judges, and referees--that have become the norm in boxing.

He is class but boxing fans pick and choose when they want a guy to be classy and when they want a guy to talk trash.
