wrong wrong wrong, i cant even be arsed going in to this... but collazo was switched in with 7 weeks of camp to go, and the weight change was then made to 147.

hatton was first down to fight a 140 pounder (who HBO had agreed), however he injured himself in training.

They had another 140'er lined up and also got offered collazo, ricky saw a opertunity to make himself a 2 division champ, and against his teams wishes got the match agreed.

Whats there not to get? If Mosley moved to middleweight and won every round against Taylor, I wont say that he isn't a great fighter b/c he didnt knock him out, I won't say that he's avoiding the best in Felix Sturm or any of the other bullshit excuses people put on floyd.

Floyd fought a former 33 yr old P4p & HOF in DLH & just wins by a boring Split Decision.
Pacquaio drew with a man he knocked down three times in the first round....

Wrong. Please name the 140 pounder they had lined up, I dare you.

I know for a fact that Freitas and Diaz were two of their targets, both lightweights. I'll go find the article right now.

You score the rest of the fight the same as the judges? I still have Pacquiao losing that bout even with the correct scoring of the first round.

Ive never sat down and actually scored every round, but the fact that the judge incorrectly scored the first round, which gave Marquez the draw, sits very wrong with me.

Here's Dobson confirming that Juan Diaz was their second target after Baldomir. He later goes on to say that they would love to have a bout with Diego Corrales as well, and that they would like Freitas but didnt think he'd accept. 3 Lightweights discussed so far, one junior welterweight and one welterweight.

I find it funny that they were confident to attack both divisions until after the Collazo bout.

Freitas, Gatti, Castillo and Corrales as his four targets.

Shall I continue Theo?

Floyd can handle Hatton's power. He handled Oscar's and Oscar was much bigger and stronger than he. Hatton will land some shots and then be amazed and shockeed at Floyd's strengh and speed. Hatton will be cut up and stopped or beaten to bruised mess.

OScar had him on the back foot and some of them punches had him thinking.Hatton will be able to pressure him for three minutes around not like Oscar who took a breather for thirty seconds or so.

Juan Lazcano was actually the man lined up. His last three fights were at 140. He'd beaten - Ben Tackie 27-5-1, Courtney Burton 21-4 and Marco Angel Perez 21-7.

He hurt his hand and they had to quickly find a replacement. Eventually they got Collazo with about 5 weeks until fight time.

Hatton presents a different type of challenge than De La Hoya.

Hatton wants to get up close and pressure. He has better stamina than De La Hoya, and is more active. He goes to the body with more consistency.

On the other hand, Hatton is smaller, less rangy, doesn't have the jab De La Hoya does, and also isn't as skilled at parrying shots as Oscar is.
