The only way you logically can pick Hatton to win is if you're a devoted fan who wants to believe he can do it. But style wise it's a terrible fight for Hatton. He doesn't have the skill or experience. I was ringside at Hatton's only fight at welterweight. They're not in the same league, sorry.
Ok thats fine,but anyhing can happen on the night,and i cant wait to see,look i picked kessler for the last big fight,so i aint one of these know it alls,good luck to both men and im just hoping hatton can give it his all thats all most fair british boxing fans are asking

yeah he's fighting someone who struggled at 147...just lost 10 pounds a week for the last month, and is convinced his power and pressure will win the fight. Sorry, heard that the last 4 Mayweather fights, and Hatton isn't as good as DLH. He's shorter, so Mayweather can box from the outside. Not saying Hatton can't win, but it's illogical to pick him. Put your money on Hatton and talk to me after Dec. 8th.

I honestly think style wise this is a bad matchup for floyd as he lost to the only two fighters who bought pressure - castillo and delahoya

and imo no-one brings the pressure like ricky

Please if you are a Hatton fan. Don't let anyone convince you he's gonna lose. I think you should by all means go out and bet.
The odds are great. What do you have to lose?
Bet your money, and lets bring these odds down this time.

Mayweather fans do seem a little more evangelical than most fans.....no grey areas at all. 'This will happen', 'that will happen', like the fight is going to progress exactly like they say and theres no room for discussion.

I hope his fans put their money where their mouth is but don't count on it. I want them to so i can get better odds.

Um MW never lost ..He was pressured but did not lose ..Though I do agree Ricky's pressure is enough to give him fits like a Castillo or a Delahoya ,I think the results will be the same ..Low punch out put from Floyd with acurate shots on his way to a wack ass decision !

There is a case for both men , they both have a shot. I like Hatton for his low key hard cool approach , no bombastic bragging.. He can win...

Floyd is regarded as P4P for a reason. He is proven over a long time as a great fighter up to this kind of event. But this is the one that could define his legacy in the highest order.

Floyd can't take risks..

Hatton most probably will take risks ..

Thats the difference. IMO .. Hatton is not cutting any corners..

But Floyd does reckon Hatton is not nearly the best fighter he has faced..

Floyd may just get a rude awakening.......

They're not trying to convince Mayweather fans through, I'm just trying to convince myself!!

I think they're both great fighters, and although I will be pulling for PBF, if Hatton wins I will give him his due. I don't think it will be an easy fight for Floyd by any means, but I do think that he has the tools to deal with Hatton. The only problem that I do have is that when Hatton beat Tszyu and Castillo it didn't matter they were starting to show sings of age (Kostya not so much, but Castillo definitely), yet whenever Floyd beats anyone, they are considered nobodies.
