True Scarla, but I just can't help but feel that was a past peak Hatton. Not taking anythign away from PBF at all - he probably would have beaten any version of Hatton but would have got a *marginally* tougher fight with the Hatton of 3-4 years back, where the agression was tempered with fast footwork and setting up angles rather than seeing if he could push his head another inch into FMJ's chest.

All speculation anyway, PBF ripped him a new arsehole and props to him.

Hatton looked great in the 1st round when he was using angles..but no human being can keep up that pace.Its simply not practical and it was inevitable he would slow down.He was cutting of the ring well but he doesnt have the head movement nor power to be effective with a style like that. Physically he may have passed his peak but thats merely conjecture.ANY version of Hatton gets beat by PBF handily.

PBF was potshotting him without Ricky inflicting any damage in return, it discouraged him big time.

The low point in this fight is the fact Hatton carried on his unsuccesfull tactic for 7 more rounds, without his corner telling him to take less chances coming in ( he could have brought up his hands and moved his head a little more)

The KO was due more to Ricky's careless rush ins than PBF's intention to end the fight.

Sloppy preparation, no plan B, for the biggest fight of his life.

Hatton should drop Graham.
What for? If it aint broke dont fix it.Im not a big fan of Graham and think his vastly overrated as a trainer.His not done anything for Macklin or for Farnell up to his retirement and thinks he can train every fighter the same way he trains Ricky.

There is no point in talking about plan B as Ricky fights ONE WAY.His style doesnt change to suit fighters.He does the same thing every fight.The only diffrence is that as his stepped up in class his style has been found out.

I agree 100%.

When you lead with your face you are always going to run into trouble at some point.

He showed serious courage getting in the ring with Mayweather, regardless of the purse.

What kind of a individual switches allegiance half way through a fight because their man is losing.
