I'm not putting Witter down Just pointing out that Tszyu was THE CHAMP, a unified Champ, and wasnt a tomato can type win which the original poster stated of hattons record. Perhaps Junior will, could, and might, but he hasnt faced that level yet.

Yes, taylor should box Pavlik and will. He'll use his jab, shuffle back, and come out swinging when hes forced too

No, he's right. Your post was pure ignorance. Floyd wins this one fairly easily imo. But only coz he's the best in boxing today. Not because Hatton isn't elite. This should turn out to be one of Floyds best scalps on his resume.

I would slightly favour Witter over Castillo but not KT. He struck me as still having quite a lot left in the tank. Main reason he lost to Hatton was because of stylistic differences. KT's great but he could get disorganised by pressure at times.

It's gonna be over in 5 rounds - or less - no matter what he does.

There is a REASON Taylor has been facing light-hitting fighters coming up from lower weights ever since Hopkins rocked him!!

Tszyu never seemed to be a very active champ to me.

What future hall of famer only fights once a year as champ? Hatton stalls and picks most fighters at the right time.

Witter took any fight he could get to get to world level while Hatton fought journymen or past their best fighters In Manchester to get a shot at Tszyu. Witter earned his titles much more.

Floyd doesn't need to slip about pot shotting against Hatton. Hatton won't do as well as DLH did.

come on now, Gatti-Mayweather was a whitewash from the start. . . Hell, Hattons hugs will do more damage than any of Gatti's missed punches.

Nice gif btw, great quality.

I think many people are underestimating Hatton. Hatton will (try) smother PBF, so that he cant realy throw jabs. PBF leans back when defending, giving him abit of space to get his reply-shots in. Against Hatton it will be a totaly different fight. Hatton will be sticking to PBF like JLo's tanga to her butt. If Hatton can not remove that space between him and PBF as shown in the picture, he'll lose badly.

Im realy curious to see how PBF handles Hatton's style. I think PBF got more in his arsenal to win this one, even though I hope Hatton will deliver us an upset.

Oops, nearly forgot the topic

JT slugging it out ... this one I want to see first before I believe it.

Taylor wants a slugfest because Taylor needs a slugfest, he is not going to be the better technical boxer in the ring on Sept. 29, but his experience in a slugfest, along with his power would make the fight swing in his favor.

I don't think he has the advantage in power

I think that Taylor's power is underrated, and I know that Pavlik's chin is not tested, Taylor's power does seem to be inferior to Pavlik's, but his chin is tested.

Plus the x factor, Taylor is an experienced fighter.

There is no question about it: Taylor is the more experienced fighter and has faced the better fighters. I think Pavlik's chin has been tested against Miranda. He seems to have an excellent chin.

Taylor's power is not enough to put away certain LMW's, much less a big MW with a proven solid chin at least. Pavlik has put away guys who have otherwise not been stopped outside of their bout with him.

The power is not even remotely comparable. The Ouma fight tells you everything you need to know about Taylor's mediocre power, considering LMW punchers have hurt Ouma badly and Taylor could not so much as drop him.

Pavlik would have had Ouma out in 3 rounds.
