Ricky Hatton believes he does many miles on the back foot like Forrest Gump and his fans gat to take it the same way Ricky took it when wearing the "Ricky Fatton" T-Shirt. I mean, he can come in the ring with 50cent, laughin straight to the bank with this (ha ha ha ha ha), the sombrero and the mexican colours and we can't say ****? I do think he's a classy individual...

The only thing that turns me off him is that he very seldom comes close to doing anything in the ring that he has threatened to do--that aspect I can't handle-hence I'm no fan of his---Give me the TONEY of yesterday ----dirty frigging mouth--but always tried to accomplish what he promised-prefight. Floyds private life---thats his to do as he sees fit. Another hassle is he's in the dont get hit game and the defensive role does'nt go down well with the majority of fight fans....

Mayweather really needs to stop playing the villian. At first it served him well with the fight fans paying good money for the chance of seeing him get knocked out, but now it gotten to the point where his detractors hate him so much that they will go to any length to discredit his victories.

he's about as funny as a fart in an elevator and his attempts to play the bad guy are pathetic. For a real villain see a real bas ass: Mayorga.
I don't so much hate him as find him extremely boring, tiresome.

Well then he or his fans cant expect anything but people thinking hes a ****ing **** then,i mean how olds the guy?,he aint a kid,im sorry but i bet he is like that out of the ring,i think your jsut trying to defend him.How do you know hes not like that then?,he everytime ive seen him talk and be seen acts like that.

Me personaly i would after a few years of it,try to more humble,but each to there own,its just that if hatton does win(and he could its boxing you all anything can happen deep down),he best leave the country,BUT if he wins(and yeah he should),his head will swell to epic size and will need scafolding to hold it up.

i just ignore what floyd says, but what ****es me off about him is that he's just content with cruising in fights settling for decisions than letting his hands fly like when he was at 130.

1- to hype fights
2- to portray a "hip hop" lifestyle which some what follows reason 1

he does all this garbage to put on a show and its kind of a way to celebrate how far he has came... you gotta admit... if you were a millionare it might be fun to just run around as arrogant as you can possibly be because the reality of the situation is .. your a great person

in reality floyd is probably as regular as the rest of us and likes to put on a show and it works becasue hes a boxer.....


or maybe im just to big of a fan...

anyways what are your thoughts?
I'm a fan of the sports . . . so I like PBF inside the ring . . . as a fighter. He's one of the best if not the best in the modern history of the sports.

But other than that . . . his attitude . . . his life style sucks! He is an idiot punk.

Great fighter, the best of his generation in fact. I respect his skills and work ethic and enjoy watching him fight.

Though he is without a doubt an annoying individual who often makes remarks and statements which seem inane and quite frankly idiotic. I can understand him wanting to portray himself as a bad guy to sell more tickets and promote a fight. But as a prominant fighter he becomes a role model for those who watch and participate in the sport. I think it his arrogance that bothers me the most. He comment about $12.5 million being slave wages sticks out in my mind as one of his more ridiculous statements.

I respect the fighter but not the man.

I don’t hate him. I think he is a supremely skilled boxer and the runner tag is unjustified. The aim of boxing is to hit without being hit. In one to one interviews he often comes off well but his ‘designer gangster’ act leaves me cold. Some of his most ardent fans are as ill informed, as they are irritating in the way they are unable to cope with anyone who sees the world differently than they do. I suspect both Mayweather and some of his groupies suffer from a narcissistic personality disorder.

What's so good about mine?

I'm not rich but I have just anything I need, and I enjoy my life with what I have without being an ass to the people around me.

Simple life amigo . . . simple life.

I used to be a fan a few years back but no more. Mayweather now mostly talks about how great, rich he is and disrespects opponents. I don't wanna hear it. If he fights Cotto, Williams, Margarito, Mosley, he'll find out how great he really is.

Hey it's diversity based on culture differences. So if it's okay with you or others . . . it's not for me.

I'm just responding to the question of the thread starter.

Honestly that's how I feel.
