Would have thought Man City FC might have tapped into this - Hatton has a huge following amongst their supporters.

Personally I would avoid a public venue as this event will likely attract a lot of casual fans and I don't think I could really stomach them for a fight of this magnitude.

His last two fights have been on in Sports Bar on Peter Street. I have watched in there and will probably do so again. However, you have to be in there quite early like before about 1am. The place was full of a few casual fans, but no real dickheads. I think your options are quite limited anyway as I don't know of anywhere else likely to show it.

Thats cool as ****. Does the place have a bar? If it does I couldnt think of a better place to watch it. If I was a Hatton fan who wasnt travelling to america, thats where I would be going. Great value for 40 quid.

Dunky, I've been dying to ask the question, joking aside, are you a shift worker or an insomniac? Or both? You post on here at some really weird hours in the morning...

Anyone know what time the fight will start ?

From a drunken memory the ODLH vs PBF fight which was in Vegas was after 4:00 am with a delay on the undercard, I remember crashing out around 5:30 ish just after the decision was announced.

2:30 apparently

Dunky - it not only has a bar, it has bacon butties and the option of an english breakfast I believe.
