No matter what Ricky does in America, it is gonna be written off

I canceled my HBO sub (I only had it for the boxing) with a note explaining their crappy/biased boxing analysis as the reason. GOOD BY HBO YOU SUCK. If we all did this they would take notice. I get better boxing analysis on ESB!

Thats coz he aint like naz, with his extravagance and outrageous behaviour in front of cam. He dont run his mouth at the camera or taunt his opponents! Ricky stays humble throughout. HBO need clowns to make fights,so that they can join the other bunch of clowns sitting on the commentary panel. Takes one to know one in ther case!

Oh that was absolutely disgusting. I'd have to label that as the worst commentry in the history of the sport. All four of them continously spewed rubbish about what was happening.

Castillo was supposedly shot but could still let off 50-60 shots a round, landing at a 30% clip. Not only that but after his slow start he was beginning to get more into the fight and even win exchanges on the inside. **** HBO. They are ****suckers.

Hatton came out of the gates fast and Castillo couldn't handle it. Castillo admitted pre fight it would be hard because he won't know what angles Hattons shots are coming from. The KO had nothing to do with being shot or not. If it put down that Castillo, it'll put down Castillo two years ago.

Seriously, I'm shocked at how bad the commentry was. Look at how none of them got excited when Castillos knees buckled and then when he went down. They were disinterested in the fight. The ko was clear as day but Lamps thought he was faking a low blow.

Kellermen said congratulations then started spewing shit. What a disgrace. You train for 3 months, for a fight that everyone thinks is 50-50, only to be told hes suddenly shot.

The EXACT same shit happened with Kostya Tszyu.

Hatton was the stronger and more powerful fighter. He won the body bashing war. He started faster and was clearly the more agile, nimble, fluid and dynamic fighter.

He summed up the ko perfectly. Castillo crossed his arms in an Archie Moore style and he found a spot behind his elbow.

So it wasnt just me

I thought the American ignorance / arrogance was a new thing, it shows the broadcasters are just as bad

I'd like to give Lederman a good left hook to the ribs, see if he still claims "RH is doing 90% of the holding"

They are a bunch of prats. How can you complain about the electricity being conducted that night. The music, the chants, the celebrations was all top notch.

Brits are probably the best fans in the world! Even if our fighters leave, 10,000 still rally around to go support them.

On 23rd June 2007, Hatton owned the Thomas and Mack Centre in every way.

What a ****. As he was saying that Hatton was punching and hitting. Even when Castillo had Hatton in a headlock they hated on Hatton.

If Hopkins holds and hits, he's called a master.

Yeah, Hatton clinches but last night he was throwing Castillo around, holding and hitting. It was physical where both wanted to take control. Hatton did what he had to.

Listen to the GF talk about the low blows. Cortez said his cup was a little high and then pointed to where would be considered ok - he pointed about one inch lower than where his belt line was.
