I guess I like Hatton. I don't think he'll allow Castillo the room he needs to punch, and will just smother him en route to a decision victory.

Hatton will win. He is best when facing a fellow warrior.

I'm taking Castillo. Hatton should probably be favored, as he is. After watching Castillo's last fight, I'm not sure if he can match Hatton's energy level.

Castillo can bother Hatton from the outside, and is the best inside fighter Hatton has ever faced. If he can deal with Hatton's work rate(that includes pushing) I think he can stop Hatton.

We'll soon see. It is less than 1/2 hour from show time.

Not really, Castillos last two outings were much worse than Hattons.

Kudos to Hatton, an excellent win.

Maybe Castillo had seen better days, but few if any were suggesting such a one sided blow out.

The big issue with Hatton was spelled out in the post fight interview, with the Guinness remark. Hatton does not look after himself between fights and unless he changes his way, that will hurt him more and more as he gets older.

That was some body shot,he had done some other good body shots earlier,the signs were there,but no way did any one i think expect castillo to go so easy,just shows you really how unpredictable boxing can be,well done hatton though.

Fine performance by Ricky. Him winning was no surprise, but I thought it'd be points of maybe a late stoppage. I think Castillo could have got up to be honest but he thought "**** it".
