Default That ref

The point deduction was a joke and meant Hatton had to go after Mayweather a bit more in the hope of making it up. Didnt decide the fight obvioulsy but didnt help Hatton's gameplan. Feel sorry for Hatton, but he was caught cold, and couldnt recover.

Hatton made a tatical mistake, he admitted that post fight. Cortez done him no favours, but like he said, if he was in Mayweather's boots, he would of taken advantage of that, like he has in the past.

Hatton has admitted he has nothing to complain about, and showed the class of a World Champion in losing to the very best boxing has at the moment.

true...there was nothing blatant enough to count as an excuse for losing. mayweather was simply too good.

I thought the ref was a disgrace really. Seemed no matter what happend in clinches etc, it was all hattons fault, when really Floyd was just as dirty or 'cute' if you like. Not that I believe that it would have changed the outcome, as Mayweather was sublime at times, but I think Hatton knew pretty early on it was going to take a miracle to win with Cortez acting as he was.

As said, don't think it really changed the outcome as Mayweather grew in stature as the fight wore on, but had Cortez actually let them work things out a bit more on the inside, it would have boosted any chance Hatton had.

i totally agree.......everythin seemed to be "ricky dont do this, ricky dont do that" when all the time floyds forearms and elbows were gettin flashed around, and when ricky got cut i thought floyd was targetting that area with the elbow when they were inside........mayweather seemed to duck down an awful lot and when hatton moved in mayweather would stand up and cortez was straight in to split it up because it looked like hatton was holding.

another thing i noticed was the noise during the american national anthem!!!!.........the referee might not have liked that sort of disrespect..............could be a little lesson on away days for world titles etc.......respect the country your visiting because you might not know when you could need their backing

Absolutely...it is the lowest of the low to disrespect a national anthem (nevermind the event hosts!). Probably didn't have an impact on things, but the only blip from the travelling fans. A shame really.

But yes, just generally shocking refereeing. For Cortez to see every little thing that Hatton did, but completely miss a host of fouls by Mayweather strikes me as odd, or bias really. Even worse, was the fact he could be heard on many occasions telling Floyd to watch his forearms/elbows, but not once made it seem like he was going to pull him up on it...complete polar opposite for anything that Ricky did.
