Thumbs up When Your Heart Ruled Your Head...

... and you made a tit of yourself against your better judgement.

Anyone else made embaressing picks due to blind patriotism and/or falling for pre-fight hype? I shall start and be honest here: as much as I rate PBF (regular posters will know how much I rate him), I honestly fell for the pre-fight 'Undefeated' event hype and started to really believe that Hatton could give PBF one hell of a performance and maybe upset the odds.

This is without a doubt my ultimate boxing fan related shame and I still cringe now when I look back. Stylistically, Hatton was never going to win this fight and, against my better judgement, I got consumed by the event. Anyone else got any bad boxing picks they want to 'fess up about when they allowed their heart to rule their head?

You aren't alone around here mate, loads were picking Hatton against Mayweather and Pacquiao The Mayweather/Hatton fight was considered 60/40 in favour of Mayweather by ESB which was ridiculous

I've never let my heart rule my head, I even predicted my favourite would lose but one pick I'm not proud of is Marg over Mosley. That was a shocker.

I thought Bruno would beat Tyson both times!! Hey, I was only a nipper. Moving on.

And yep I bet on Hatton to beat Floyd. I thought Hatton was gonna do a Duran - Leonard 1. The shame, the shame of it all.

That's how I feel about it as well. The shame. Sky warped my mind!

Maybe this is a recurring theme with Hatton. I'm glad others felt the same way and I haven't been embaressed by this as much as I thought I would be, though. I always thought Pac would do Ricky, though- by that point I had learned to never be let down by hype again and to go with my instinct.
