He knows what hes critics are saying and knows he has to pull off a decent performance to keep HBO happy. I think and hope this will be a quality fight with some scary moments in but will see Hatton victorious.

Hatton hasn't shown the same class in his last three bouts. Questions hang over all of them.

Castillo has always stayed polished and consistent, even when he looks off. Against N'goudjo he didn't lose, 7-5 or 8-4. Plus N'go was a good fighter.

With Castillo you know you are going to get hands high, good jab and solid body work. With Hatton you don't know. If he can bring back a Tszyu like performance then we're talking. In that fight he had his hands up and actually picked off alot of Tszyus shots.

Now Hatton is consistent in one thing and that is being inconsistent with his body attack and defence. Dare I say it, his stamina took a hit v Urango. He says it is because he was ill. It must be.

I do question how Hatton takes a body shot. Urango hurt him downstairs and Tszyu went low but not enough for him to go down, complain like he did or even retaliate. I think Hatton may get rattled when challenged downstairs. Castillo will challenge him there.

We know what Castillo is always about, we don't with Hatton. Thus Hattons bet partially lay in intangiables i.e. is he stronger? will the natural size count? does he punch harder at 140?

Hatton has to make his natural size count and he needs to maul and brawl Castillo so Jose fights his fight.

It's a pick em. A 50-50. That is where greatness lay - winning bouts that people aren't really sure you can win.

I'm tipping Hatton by UD but only if he brings his A game. If he doesn't it's good night Manchester.

If Castillo were younger, I would pick him to win by stoppage. But, given that fact that he's 33 and has been in quite a few wars, I also have this fight as a pick'em

Hatton wins by late stoppage despite an inspiring performance by the ageing champion

Good post, alot of people are mentioning Hattons ability to take body shots, it was a factor in the Urango fight but that guy hit like a mule. Hatton has to watch Castillos left to the body, thats a sickening punch

Hattton by UD, Castillo is not going to be able to out-strength Hatton like he's done to quite a few of those lightweight opponents.

Hatton is stronger, quicker, more agile and will outwork him.

Castillo close UD. If he's not shot, then that slight edge in class and power should tell, but there are quite a few intangilbles in this matchup.
