Best fighter Hatton ever fought in his prime is actually Collazo

Best fighter Mayweather ever fought in his prime is Castillo

Most definitely. Crazy, ain't it...that he gets this shot and payday.

but the crazy ass Hatton fans will tell you that Tszyu and Castillo were both A Class when they fought him.

They'll also tell you that the wins over Ben Tackie and Vince Phillips mean something....


Hatton is all bullshit....a smoke and mirrors career...an illegal hold and hit style...I've said it before, and I'll say it again...he's lucky to have gotten this far...


Tszyu - Travesty of justice for the win. Hometown, illegal tactics, and Dave Parris advantages. Tszyu was paid well and said, "**** this shit.". Hatton gets a big NAME on his resume.

Maussa - A lucky, tough bum with a belt. Hatton gets cut up and throws a leaping left hook that connects for the KO.

Collazo - Hatton steps up to take on a B- boxer and narrowly escapes defeat. Hatton gasses out and gets pummelled in the end of the fight. Many feel a draw or Collazo win.

Urango - A strong bum, who in the 5th round, takes it to Hatton's body. Hatton is practically done for the rest of the fight. Hanging on. No stamina. Gets a wide decision because Urango's a bum.

Castillo - A battle worn and halfway downhill version. Castillo gets discouraged because Cortez is all over him. He needed the money and his heart wasn't in it. So when Hatton lands a good body shot, Castillo decides to take a knee and not get up. Hatton gets another big NAME on his resume.

Mayweather - Does Hatton really deserve this fight?

That's right. He doesn't...and that's why I'm betting 5 grand on Mayweather.

Its funny, given this, that Billy Graham Hattons trainer thinks that Hatton is nearly at the point where he can retire because he has 'nothing left to prove'.

I have also thought about placing a big bet on this fight, I have about 4k in savings that is yelling at me to bet it, lol.....but then I read some other posts on how you should never make your first money bet (this would be my first) a big one. I get the feeling that I am going to be kicking myself in the balls after this fight for NOT placing one though

Or have I gathered wrong?
Can't answer for Brooklyn, but I will say that he changes his avatar every day or couple of days.

Hey, guys...if my hate filled, laser guided, truth missiles on that ****er don't convince you...don't bet...lol...but this matchup is one of those opportunities you can't pass up...

Mismatch. The safe and sure bet is on a Mayweather win. It'll be 2 to 1 or less at last call...

what do you mean deserve? Surely you're not implying Mayweather has only taken on only the top fighthers?
having said that I agree with your overall analysis.
