Just watched with HBO commentary and completely agree, no wonder Hatton's getting some shit in the General Forum.

Lederman was particularly bad with his 90% bollocks but in general I can't see how devaluing the product as a whole with the negative tone and particularly a man who HBO have spent a lot of money on in Hatton is good for the station. Can't think that their employers will be very happy with them trashing Hatton's performance.

The americans are just pissed that in europe boxing is growing especially in Germany plus the reurgance here in blighty with hatton,calzaghe and khan while in america its dieing a slow and painfull death. The heaveywieght division which was once thier prize possession is long gone never to return and theyre best fighter pbf is an asshole who everyone hates and wants to see lose. All thier best best fighers are either shot like tony,de la hoya and rjj or boring non repect earners such as taylor.

The racial politics in american boxing is also a disgrace, they seem to believe that if a fighter is not from black or hispanic origins then he isnt marketable and thus no use pushing.

I am a Junior Witter fan, & I am David Barnes fan too. met Barnes a couple of years back & he was a great fella. He said that I nearly blinded him when I took a photo of him & my pal

So naturally, I am a big fan of his. & of course as I have said until I am blue in the face, I was a massive Eubank fan back in the day.

Of course I lean towards scottish fighters, but just cos I love all things Scotland doesnt mean I hate all things english. Hopefully the younger englanders who dont have pubic hair yet but come in & talk like gangsters to me can get that into their thick ****in skulls.

But hey, I hate Hatton, so Im public enemy no1 & must hate all things England if I dare hate that wee gobshyte Hatton. Yup, its a kangaroo court in here alright

PS

Theres only one Max Kellerman

I have read in the main forum that a few decent American fans were so disgusted at HBO commentators that they have emailed HBO to advice that they have cancelled their subs. Even though I don't subscribe to HBO(obviously) I think I'm going to email them and pretend I'm American and pissed off at Kellerman et al

Otherwise it seems stupid to slag your 'own' fighter from a box office point of view?
It is to do with Hatton having a British promoter.

Hatton was on his last fight with HBO. He probably didn't resign so he could keep his options open i.e. independent PPVs, Showtime etc

**** HBO! CUNTS!

Scur seriously man. Come on. 43 fights later. One win over a top 10 140 pounder. Another over a top 30 135 pounder.

On paper Hatton is already HOF and a great fighter.

Hatton could go down as the best British fighter ever. It is plausible.

He doesnt beat the memories of Benn Eubank Lewis Naz etc etc.Its not close.2 victories over 2 old men mean squat in the grand scheme of things.He`ll get to the hall alright as these days anyone can get there.And his resume 43 fights unbeaten is impressive.But we shouldnt still be asking the questions"Who has Hatton fought". Kostya was semi retired and fighting once a year and Castillo who turned pro at 15 and has been in many a war (who was also as slow as molasses on the weekend) is surely well past his best.Good victories yes but not impressive for a 40 plus fight pro.These type of bouts should have been happening at least 15 fights ago.Hatton isnt a rookie, he hasnt arrived his here.In order to be considered the best fight the best.
