Ricky Hatton and Floyd Mayweather are honest, dedicated and top professionals, good entertainers that are building the bridge to get us fans closer together and speaking the same language of the sweet science, what is good about it should make up for the many unpleasant things that are brought along.
I have said it many times that it can be one-sided or it can develop into an interesting clash of styles at the highest level, so any true boxing fan should wish for the latter rather than the former.
Dude you generally write some valid points about fights but your suggestion here that Ricky Hugtton showing the sweet science of boxing is bollocks..there is notthing in Hugttons fight arsenal that reads: SKILLS...

believe me it is skills that will win this fight and the only one of these guys who has it doesn't hug the night away (in the ring).

They'll probably complain when Floyd gets slagged off for fighting the fat midget that RH so obviously is.
Talk about double standards.
Thanks Chris, one of the few who can see what I'm driving at. I notice Standi, Unbeatablefloyd and the his other bum chums haven't posted on here.

everyone derides floyd for not fighting people at 140+ (despite those people rejecting fights), then he fights an ATG in his first fight at much higher weight class than his natural weight, and then the #8 p4p fighter in the world, and its still not shit to people
