Urango landed a good body shot, but Ward just doesnt have enough skill or brains to deal with Hatton. I expect a more conservative performance from him much like his UD win over Tackie. Ward is wide open to body blows himself.

It's a boxing tactic, just like how Mayweather sticks his elbow in people's faces. And Hatton is a very busy fighter, holding or not. He throws a lot of punches.

Hatton was a level or two above Micky Ward. He'd outbox him in an exciting fight where Ward has his moments too.

I find hatton a notch (or 2) above the talent of gatti (who was a notch or 2 above ward!). While hatton may not KO him, this would probably be as lopsided as Hatton/Phillips. Sure Ward might stand in there...but to what end. I like Mickey to much to even wish him into this fight!

Ricky murders him. But could be a quite exciting execution.

Castillo was old as **** and already fought corrales 3x and was moving up in weight.


Ward ****s up Hatton, Hatton is a little bitch.

Check it, aight.

Castillo fought Chico twice, and had fought above 135 numerous times before.

Ward never beat anyone as good as the 35 year old Tszyu who came off a 3 round destruction of Mitchell.

Ward was a very entertaining fighter who was at least a level below Hatton.
