How nice.

Did you make that up all by yourself, you should be proud.

If Hatton beats Mayweather he gets second maybe third p4p.

If Calzaghe beats Kessler he gets to further legitimize his top 10 p4p status somewhere around 5 or 6. I can't see Calzaghe going higher than guys like Winky, Bhop and though he's been shaky even Jermaine. Just look at their resumes.

But again those would be huge accomplishments for both men more so for Hatton because stylistically PBF would give Hatton nightmares and vice versa.

Calazage would easily chew up BHOPs and Winky and they are all at the same weight pretty much

So its based on resumes now is it,seems it flips between skill and resume to suit peoples wish of legitimising their chosen best guy.If it resume and who you have beaten then Mayweather is not number 1.

Well that's very likely again I never compared the fighters against eachother that's not the type of logic I use (at least not the butt of it) when making a p4p list. Its a combonation of things ranging from popularity, skills, resume, defenses, heart, determination, style, etc,etc.

Plus if it was only based on resumes then Hatton would be lowered on the Pole. Zoo (though he was p4p and the man at 140lbs) was 35 years old and beat Sharmba who himself was in his late 30's, a great win and his best win by far but a win that was slightly overrated but a career defining win nonetheless. Castillo, well looking at Castillo in the first round you already knew the man did not look like the Castillo that we have all come to know and love. Hatton's KO of Castillo was impressive but again if you think that was Castillo that fought Corrales a couple years back then your lying to yourself. Lets take a trip into reality boys, despite all this I think Hatton does take to much slack some is deserved some is not. He's still top 10 p4p no doubt about that.

Na my p4p list is as inconsistant as my bank account but I actually never had floyd at no 1, no 2 yes but Pac & Bhop have been there for the most part.....If Ivan Calderon wins his next bout he gets on my list.

Ill admit im no mega boxing expert but dont think itll work out like that. Theres lots of things to consider He would be up in the top 10 maybe top 5 but i dont think hatton will go from not being in the top 10 to being number 1 even if he beats the number 1, sure someone who knows how it works better would know more than me.


Be good if they did im huge fans of both.

as far as i'm concerned, if Winky beats Hops convincingly than he is #1. He will have the best resume and on top of that he hasn't lost a fight since Vargas YEARS ago and even then that fight is still disputed. Winky all the way!!!

I'm far, far from a Winky fan but you do have a good arguement there. I mean the man beat would have beaten three legends (Tito, Mosely and Bhop) what more can you ask for.
