Explain to me why you think Americans are upset with Hatton beating a Mexican?

It has nothing to do with race, nationality. Hatton is a dirty fighter, end of story.

I liked the way he fought last night. He showed how a tough inside fighter does it - he never stops punching from all angles, is strong and physical and uses his quick feet to be right in the other fighter's face. Against Tsyzu he got away with murder but last night was good stuff.

Lets not forget the likes of Duran, Hopkins and Holyfield, if they can slip in a few sly ones and get so much credit why the **** can't Hatton?

All the English guys, a bit touchy arent you? I dont think too many people here have said that he is a crap fighter, merely commenting on his style of fighting.

a lot of people on here haven't got a clue.most of the holding last night was coming from castillo and anyway so what?i hadn't realised boxing was a pure sport where every fighter is technically correct and perfect.look at the old footage of legends like robinson,moore ali and others and they were all at it. but in those days it was called tying a man up,it was considered legitimate and stopped the other guy working especially if you'd gotten your own punches off.of course they're saying he beat over the hill tszyu and now castillo, who didn't look a shot fighter to me in there last night,i thought he was fighting pretty well up to the stoppage although it could be argued hatton was gradually breaking him down it was a competitive fight.some on here can't even recognize hattons skills they're either incapable of doing so or their hate blinds them.and just for good measure i think hatton loses to mayweather,cotto,de la hoya and mosley so any comments about nuthugging is way off.i just judge him as a mighty fine light welterweight

He was on the news every single day last week. He has got more TV exposure than anyone I've ever seen post-Benn/Eubank. Including Lewis and Naseem.

And I'm not a big fan of Hatton's style, but it's perfectly legal. Ugly, sure, but at least he, unlike Ruiz, is active and trows a lot punches with intent. He isn't close to being as bad as Ruiz and it's stupid to say he is.

I love his pressure, relentlessness, stamina, speed, bounciness, energy, attitude BUT I ****ING HATE HIS CLINCHING!!! So all in all his fighting style could be one of my fav's but as it is, its just OK or above average for me to watch.

I think Hatton is a good fighter and used to be much more entertaining when fought less demanding opponents. But, at the level he currently is his skills are not enough to keep winning fights. This shows his trainer is a very good one and able to select tactics which suits Hatton best. That's why he resorts to holding so often, I think he seemed to be in panic not to get hit by Tszyu in first half of the bout, I remember him holding Tszyu's arms desperately. As soon as he realized Tszyu is tired and doesn't carry the power any more, he felt more comfortable and didn't hold and clinch that much.
Hatton is still entertaining and boxing fans learnt alot from his fights like for instance excessive holding and clinching is allowed. Without Ricky I would never find out.

not good for british boxing when one of its most high profile fighters gets no air time.

for 6 years all you heard was ricky hatton would be beaten by the first top 20 american he fought/then top 10/then top 5/then he cuts and is china chinned/then if he ever left the uk/then tzsyu will anniahlate him/

nothing wrong with americans liking there own fighters but bias and blinkered approach to european fighters should mean european fighters in the main should remain just that.

fighting in europe.
Castillo's not even an American. He's a Mexican. Believe me, if you know how much flak Mexicans catch in the states there's no way you would make that comment. This alleged American bias does not apply here. Maybe people just don't like Ricky because they think he's a douchebag or for some other reason than him being a Brit. Please allow for that possibility.

Me too. I like the "win at all costs" style mixed with the "fight it out in the trenches" style.

Hatton isn't afraid to take a few to give a few.

I'm American and I like the way Hatton fights. I don't think the clinching is excessive but I can see how fans of his opponents don't like his style because it works and he beats their fighters using it.
