Floyd isn't going to trade one for one, for every punch he lands Hatton gets a freebie. It's going to take a lot more than being able to "take a punch to land one". He's going to have to find Floyd which will be much harder.
Agreed, just remember how Collazo nailed hatton on the chin few times, the guy has very good chin, but floyds just better boxer.Floyd will win by 3-4 rounds, since hatton most likely gona try to hug some rounds from floyd

Anyone agree?
You mean the low blows, elbows, holding and hitting, shoving...etc?(watch the Kostya fight for more), I don't see any problems with that, a referee SHOULD not allow such tactics to happen and as far as I know clinching all the time calls for a point deduction and a DQ.

looked to me every time castillo got close and was working the body he got told to keep them up as if he was hitting low. wouldnt be a problem if the ref didnt explain to them in the middle of the ring that hattons protector and trunks were high. dont see the ref being a problem with hattons jump in, hit, and grab style. floyd will catch him all night coming in.

Kostya was dirty in their fight too though.
I think Hatton will at least try and rough Mayweather up, which will make the choice of ref important.
What fight do you believe Ricky deserved a DQ in for excessive clinching?

This notion that Hatton hits and holds is bullshit. You guys need to get off of this. Yes, Hatton fights in close. He will clinch, but he hits in the clinch. He remains a high rate of activity and punch output, unlike Ruiz, who so many of you are comparing him to. I don't see Hatton's style being a problem with any ref, even Nady. Simply because he is active. The rules against clinching/holding as I understand them are in place in order to prevent the unfair restraining of the opponent and to keep the action going. My observation of Hatton is that he fights on the inside, and any clinching or holding is the inevitable result of arms getting tangled or his opponent trying not to get hit, and yes, occasionally Ricky holding with one arm and hitting with the other.

Will the refs protect Hatton by calling PBF body shots low blows????
Happened on both the Zoo and Castillo fight, coincidentally.
