In all honesty, the fact the Tszyu has stayed away from the ring, shows me that he was content with his effort.

My guess is that if Tsyzu was'nt happy with his effort for whatever reason, he would have wanted to correct it.
.....but I've got to believe with the way he comported himself before and after, that he was happy with the effort and is going to leave it at that!
No mate tszyu isnt content with his performance against hatton,hes just a smart man who knew it is time to call it a day with lots of cash and most importantly his health still in order.

You claim that because he didnt fight again after the loss he was HAPPY with the loss???

You havent a clue mate...

Exactly.

The only reason the fight was 2am was to satisfy US TV paymasters so the fight could be shown at a decent time Eastern US Time. Both Hatton and Kostya had to adjust to this absurd condition imposed by the TV network (Showtime I think).

Sorry, maybe I should have just said Tszyu went to the challenger's backyard and Hatton fought a fight that only a local ref would have allowed.

We saw what happened when an american ref actually told Ricky to stop holding with Collazo...he nearly got KOed in the last round.

His cling-on & bang-away style was as bad in this fight as the last few rounds of his Urango night.. The intentional low blow he laid after the break was a foul only second to Zab laying into Mayweather... actually it was worse b/c Tszyu has always been a class act and no way deserved it. The ref obviously gave Tszyu time to recover but no penalty to the Hitman.

This fight was more of a rugby skirmish than boxing. Yet he still makes these audacious comments about PBF being boring/unwatchable when this fight is hardly a FOTY. I really hope Mayweather doesnt fall prey to these IMO lowbrow tactics and wins every minute of every round.
so the longest whinge in the history of sport goes on.

I'm sure the whinging after Mayweather beats Hatton will be longer.

i doubt it, mayweather will beat hatton clearly enough without people bitching. most brits know hattons chances are slim and we're not that whiny when we lose, just shrug our shoulders and go meh.

I don't think so, most Hatton fan know Mayweather is a great fighter and will be hard to beat. If Hatton does lose most fans will accept that he gave his best shot against the P4P #1 and came up short.

The reason that the Zoo 'thing' drags on around here is that most ESBers picked Zoo by very early KO, said Hatton had obsolutley no chance and were very vocal and insulting to Hatton in the process....so now, instead of just admitting they got it wrong, they're just trying make excuses why they picked the fight so badly.

Beautiful I was just about to say this. The guy who started this thread should watch the fight again and pay attention this time

Zoo never faired well against pressure fighters, Hattons style (though extremely unappealing) is very effective against pure boxer/punchers like Zoo. The fact that Zoo was in his mid to late 30's didn't help but really didn't play much of a factor when thinking about how Zoo reacts to guys that smother him. I'm not a fan of Hatton's style but he is a determined hunger warrior which should be respected.

Don't think it would make any difference. He is so biased and blind to reality that he only sees what he wants and then bores us all with his non-adjective comments.

Hatton wanted it more and Hatton gave as good as he got. To talk about the low blow and fail to state that he was retaliating to Zoo's is silly - everyone clearly knows this was Hatton saying "anything you can do, I can do better".

Bring on Mayweather.

What does non-adjective mean exactly?

The fight was stylistically a nightmare and Hatton is to blame <period> Hatton got away with everything and the low blow was a nasty incident in which Hatton does not get critizied for. He showed no real class. He's just a punter of a boxer and he'll get what's coming Dec 8.

Better fight than anything Run-away-weather has ever been in.

Tzyu and Hatton got it on and neither man complained, when Hatton got hit low he hit KT back low. Both men went at it to see who would come up short and it was Kostya.

Are you guys boxing fans or what?? What's all this 'it was dirty and nasty' bullshit. That was a fight between two gladiators, a war of attrition and the beauty of boxing is you have all these different styles and now and then you get 2 brawlers like that and sometimes you get brawler V boxer like Hatton Mayweather. It's all part of the fun.

If everyone boxed like Mayweather it would be like watching the amateurs.
