Floyd is going to stop Hatton. End of thread. That white flag is going up in the air. And Hatton does show hurt when tagged to the body if you notice he holds immediately I guess most didnt b/c he holds immediately anyway.

This will be the first fight in a wee while where Floyd will feel like he's fighting someone of equal size. Comes down to the first four rounds in my view, if Floyd sees that his punches are having effect on Hatton, he'll start teeing off more.

but of course.

One thing I'd like to point out is I believe PBF's power is underrated a little around here.

Eamon Magee is/was a naturally bigger and harder hitting fighter than Floyd. He's also a southpaw and Hatton was up at the count of one.

Of course Floyd will stop Hatton, it could even be before 5 rounds under the right circumstances. Hatton is going to get eaten alive.

When I think of a fighter being rocked, I think of someone who is ready to go, and Floyd damm sure never had Oscar hurt to this point.

Amsterdam, while I respect your boxing knowledge, your taking this way too far.

Floyd needed more time than that to stop Gatti.

If you repeat that to yourself enough times, while refraining from watching any Cotto fights on video, while juggling Floyds nuts... you may even start to believe what your saying.

Yes, but Hatton will be walking into Floyd's sharp counter punches and Floyd's power is now of a full fledged WW. Floyd hurt DLH twice to the head and once to the body weighing at 150, DLH has a great chin and is a full fledged LMW.

Floyd's filled out to 147, Hatton is a small 140. Stylistically, Floyd could very well sit down on his shots more and drop Hatton with a vicious 1-2...

I am picking Floyd tko8-9, but all I am saying is don't be surprised if Hatton gets blown out before 5 due to the awful style match up that he's facing.

Floyd never rocked DLH. Why does this even need to be pointed out?

Mainly because I think as hard as Tszyu hit, he was never able to catch Hatton on the END of his right hands. Hatton would quickly jump in and suffocate Tszyu's power. The ref was also instrumental in that happening.

I think the Collazo fight proved that if you can enjoy some distance from Hatton that he can be hurt as the fight wears on. But Collazo is also bigger than Mayweather and he also comes from a southpaw stance, which leaves a little space when the orthodox Hatton tries to suffocate. Hatton it should be noted has always had trouble with southpaws. He was also dropped by Eamon Magee.

As I've said multiple times this is gonna come down to the ref. We all know Hatton has that lunging punch and tie up style which is reminicant of John Ruiz, only Hatton continues to punch after tied up. The ref may not give him this opportunity and there is no way Hatton can compete with Mayweather at a distance.

If the ref does allow the holding though, expect Mayweather to be in the fight of his life. The jab and grab is no joke and will not exclude the best boxer on the planet. It brings everything back to square 1.
You know, that aint half bad

and you know what happens when a good defensive boxer/ counter puncher in pbf tangles with an in-boxer/slugger in hatton: the outboxer will always have an edge stylewise. but is still depends on the physical condition and physical attributes by the boxers.

Check Oscar vs Floyd highlights on youtube and you will see that one a counter right hand from Floyd made Oscar's legs buckled.
