Angry Hatton eyes knockout win over Mayweather

NEW YORK: Ricky Hatton tries to ignore the taunts of World Boxing Council (WBC) welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather, hoping to make a knockout statement in the ring at their December 8 title clash in Las Vegas.


Mayweather, a six-times champion in five different weight classes, ridiculed the Briton this week by calling him "Vicky Fatton" on the first stop of their promotional tour.


"I think he's lacking class," Hatton told reporters on Wednesday. "Spending an afternoon with Floyd at a press conference doesn't make me feel like writing a book and saying good things about him.
"He'll never have the love of the fans the way he carries on."


Image is important to Hatton, who dominated as a junior welterweight before stepping up in class for the biggest match-up of undefeated welterweights since Oscar de la Hoya and Felix Trinidad clashed in 1999.
Mayweather, a slick fighter hailed as the world's best pound-for-pound boxer, has a 38-0 record. The hard-hitting Hatton is 43-0.


"I'm just a regular guy who likes to do what any 28-year-old would do," the Englishman said. "I play darts with my local pub team. I'm very close with my family and with my old mates."
Hatton, looking reasonably fit in a pin-striped suit, said he aimed to knock out Mayweather.


"Some fighters are just happy to get the win," he said in a sneering reference to Mayweather's defensive tactics. "It's never my intention to just get the win.
"I like to think that when I retire, when you put on fight videos from your home library of the exciting fights, mine will be up there before Floyd's. That's important to me, very important to me. That's why I've got the following I've got.
"That's why fans like me, because they can relate to me."
Hatton resisted efforts by Mayweather to goad him into action in front of the cameras at Rockefeller Plaza but took his own verbal swipe at the champion, who is a contestant on the Dancing with the Stars TV show.
"It wouldn't be the sort of thing I'd do," Hatton said. "But the longer he stays in it, the better for me, so vote for Floyd.

"Actually it could be good training for the amount of back-peddling he'll have to do."

Well . . . it's not suprising because I see that as the only way Hatton can win this fight . . . by knockout.

Nobody can win against PBF by outboxing him . . . at this point.

Yeah, you'd have to be a good boxer & a track star to keep up with him. But he is hitable as Zab proved.

Hatton's pure class. Mayweather can have all the money in the world, but that will never buy class. Just his hanger-onners and suck-ups.

He is hittable . . . if he chooses to stand his ground and trade. But the guy is smart buddy.

i dont think hatton can beat him, pbf style is more of a problem for hatton then hattons style against pbf.pbf has fought guys just like hatton back in his younger days.

come forward, pressure pressure !! nah thats not the style to beat him.pbf can fight guys like that all day/if hatton had some height and reach on him fighting like that then ok i could see it, but hatton nah im sorry.

it is boxing and anything can happen but logic says mayweather jr all day.

Case close my ass!

When and where did Castillo beat Mayweather? Stick to the facts dude . . . don't argue based on your hallucinations.

And for the sake of bullshit arguement . . . indeed if Castillo did beat PBF . . . how long was that?

I'm saying nobody beats Mayweather by outboxing him . . . NOW! . . . at this point of his career

INTIENDE?

Hatton can't outbox Mayweather. But he can knock him out.
