So nobody should ever throw body shots then in case they counter with the hook? No world class fighter has managed to counter him like that before.

Two e mails to Junior??

I think his inbox might crash, it's not used to receiving so many e mails.

Hatton was aiming for Floyd's body??

Looked like he was head hunting to me.

So one poor performance against an ATG makes him a poor fighter? Forget about everything else in his career, thats the only fight we should judge him on?

I don't see what was poor about his performance. Hatton fought the same way he always did, probably winning 3 rounds. Mayweather was just the best fighter he ever took on and as you said an ATG.

Why the hell has this turned into ANOTHER Hatton thread?

Not even Gatti walked onto a shot like that.

The fact that you are totally unaware of what type of punch Hatton threw says it all.



By the way heres your absolute idol getting knocked down by a lesser boxer then Floyd, and a 43 year old grandpa. It happens in boxing sometimes; such is boxing.

Just give the Hatton hate a rest please , this thread is suposed to be about Junior Witter.

Calzaghe got up again and won, and he is a much better fighter than Hatton.

Ricky said on his documentary that he is pissed off that people keep saying he got battered against Mayweather. From what i saw he was ineffective throughout the fight and took quite a bit of punishment in the last 3 rounds.

43 year old popkins is not a prime Floyd Mayweather.

This thread is supposed to be about Junior Witter anyway.

Enough already

This is a WITTER thread - not a Hatton one

Fair play to Witter, pretty honest stuff there. I personally think he should consider retirement given his age, however, I can understand why he wouldn't want to go out on a loss.

I think they may have picked a shocker in Bradley, BAD matchmaking...

I see no reason Junior can't get back in the mix, people went over the top about him before the fight and they are doing the same in reverse now

Maybe he DID just have an off night, I'm up and down like a yoyo when I play sports, Witter has shown signs of this in the past

His main obstacle will be getting another chance though

He ought to get busy, get a win or two and he'll be up the rankings with someone in no time, it's hardly a deep division and Hatton will likely be gone by the end of the year
