I give Hatton alot of credit for the win over Castillo I believe he was partly responsible for Castillo's decline.People will say Castillo was on the way down anyway but he didn't have a defeat to prove that.

Castillo beat ngoudjo by 115-113 fair and square I saw the fight about six months ago it was dead level going into the championship rounds.It was a decent scrap.Going back to that point Forrest may deserve to be above Hatton because he was ww no 2 going into the mosley fight but the Quartey fight was a strange verdict although i'm not convinced Hatton beat Collazo either.

It didn't suggest a decline to you though?

As for Forrest, he best Mosley, with ease, when Shane was no.1.

So I watched some Nazarov. A strong aggressive hard punching southpaw with a fantastic moustache. I really like him.

next up Christopher Battaglia!

And? Chacon prevailed in an incredible super featherweight era in some incredible fights and showed an amazing heart and fighting spirit. Very hot and cold at featherweight as his often partying ways but still picked up a great scalp in Lopez, stopped Chucho and didn't he beat Mercano as well? Can't be assed to check but it's not available either way.

And Lopez picked up some solid scalps, outpointing Kotey away from home and is, aesthetically, one of the naturally gifted power punchers.

They're both very good. Certainly moreso than Zab Judah.

Don't put too much stock into ranking fighters based on the IBHOF either, it's just a bit of fun
