Hatton and Pavlik are both come forward fairly one dimensional fighters who rely on high work rate and have racked up good KO percentages beating (relative) lower - mid class opposition.
Taylor and Mayweather both technical boxers who like to fight at their own pace picking accurate precise shots. Both fighters are former olympians. Both looked beatable in their last fight(s).
Comparing Taylor to PBF and Hatton to Pavlik is way off. PBF is more than likely to do to Hatton what Pavlik did to the one dimensional Edilson Miranda. Taylor has shown no where near the allround gifts that PBF has including excellent defence, timing, conditioning and knowhow.

Whic was exactly my point, there are very few similarities unless you go right down to the basics.

I disagree wholeheartedly with Mayweather doing to Hatton what Pavlik did to Miranda though. Theres no way Mayweather has carried destructive power up to 147, there has been no evidence whatsoever of this, infact when has Mayweather ever steamroled an opponent like Pavlik did to miranda?

Arturo Gatti at 140 pounds when Gatti was the WBC champion only better and more dominant and technically better than Pavlik was. Another PBF performance that would prove instructive is his destruction of the then unbeaten and undefeated Corrales.

I have another question for you how many world champions has PBF beaten and how many has Hatton?
