I havent had a chance to make excuses but then again I don't think I'll need any......Hatton will not win this fight. Hatton will show tremendous heart but he will be brutally picked apart. Hatton's corner will throw in the towel in a fight that will earn him the respect of the world but he will need medical attention as soon as the fight ends.

That is just avoiding the question.

Provided there's no controversial decisions/stoppages, Hatton's supporters will have more excuses they can use if he loses than Mayweather supporters can.

Hatton's supporters can use the weight excuse. Mayweather supporters will counter back that Floyd isn't a big WW.

I'm not sure what excuses PBF supporters can use if he loses. Maybe hand or wrist injuries or something.

Maybe the ref allowed too much fighting while in the clinch.

What has made you think that Mayweather is some sort of menace in the ring?? when was the last time sombody who fought him needed medical attention?? Hatton is harder to hit than Baldomir and PBF was hitting him at will for 12 rounds, yet he walked out of the ring fine......If Judah's chin stood the "Storm" then im sure Hattons will.

Unless Mayweather injures himself or Hatton cheats, there will be no legitimate excuses. Of course, unless Mayweather injures himself or Hatton cheats, Mayweather will win.

You forgot the option that states "PBF just could'nt deal with Hatton's Style" I am not fond of Hatton's style and it just might trouble PBF though I'm about 90% sure PBF outclasses him in everyway possible. I'm sorry but Hatton is extremely limited in my opinion, or maybe his attack is just an eye sore for me. Anyway you put it I answered your question.

Like I said, I don't think Hatton leaves the ring with the Win that night.

Can we stop with these bullshit ass threads. Hatton is not going to win. If by some small chance that he does win, there won't be any legitimate excuses, unless of course Floyd loses by DQ ala Roy Jones against Montell Griffin. Hatton, on the other hand, already has the excuses lined up.

Sorry to disappoint you ChampionsForever but I just see PBF picking Hatton apart all night long. Like I said I don't think he KO Hatton...Hatton's to tough and rugged for that. What I do think is PBF will be on top of his game that night because he will be up for this one. Baldo is larger than Hatton and has a history in the stone chin department. Hatton can be hurt and dropped though he has never been stopped. Hatton has a tendency of winging his shots lunging and hooking, PBF will take advantage of that flaw all night. You should know I respect Hatton and in my opinion he's higher on the p4p list than anyone of my favorite fighters but everyone has their limitations and I just think PBF is all wrong for Hatton, styles make fights and this has nothing to do with the quality of fighter Hatton is because he is and will always be a top quality fighter.

I would be very surprised if Hatton gets stopped- having said that, PBF hurt De la Hoya at the higher weight (but he looked shot)..and Hatton has been hurt in the later rds when PBF will be at his most dangerous.
