Can't wait for this fight to jump off, PBF should pull off a UD/SD but it would be a tough scrap in the process. The fight would resemble a Cotto/Mayweather bout with less clinching/bearhugging.

Id love to see Hatton knock mayweather down at least,maybe at long last he will get some respect at last from over the pond.
Still no doubt if he was a american some on here would be declearing him the second coming of christ,but becasue hes a brit,he gets ripped on.Either hes a holder,or a cheat,or the guys he fights are old and useless.
Funny how they become old and useless after he batters them,where as before hes apparently gonna get a lesson in how to fight.
In all probability he will not win,but i bet he will let gayflower know hes been in a ****ing fight.

I don't know about clearly, but I think Castillo is better when Floyd fought him. I think Zab is still better slightly than Hatton, and a few of the people at 130 are better skill wise like Hernandez and Chavez.

It dosen't matter if Hatton's not on his level. Mayweather should still make the fight. He'd be a clear favourite, but by fighting and beating Hatton, he improves his legacy no end and shuts up a lot of critics.

Hatton taking the fight, shuts up a lot of his critics too. Mainly the ones who are saying he's ducking FMJ.

Its fine to believe whatever you will about who's the better fighter. However, Hatton and Mayweather proved to be the top two at 40 in 2005 and Hatton was/is the Champion. So, the fight should happen and the world should find out what's what

This fight is going to turn out the same as the DLH fight. Hatton will press some action and come forward with arm and shoulder punches, causing some to say he was the aggressor and therefore should have won. But in the end, PBF's speed and skill will be too much for Hatton and he will lose in a lop-sided UD.

Hatton may not test Mayweather's skills more than anyone else so far has, but he WOULD test his heart and desire, and this is why Hatton has a reasonable chance of winning
Just a quick post to say that I totally agree with you and I like your Frankie avatar!

He's not a swarmer, no longer throws effective punches on the inside, won't beat Castillo,etc

I agree. Hatton and his team want no part of PBF.

Mayweather has already proven he has both heart and desire to win a tough match.

We'll talk when they have the balls to fight. I told you that it all depended on what Castillo had left and I overestimated the size of his gas tank.
