Default Hatton should just fight Floyd at 147.

And he just cut weight to like 142-143 and he'll probably come in around the weight of what he would if they fought at 140.

No way if I'm Hatton. 140 or catchweight.

Exactly. Got to be at a weight where the fighters' respective advantages meet in the middle as much as possible.

Hatton is the challenger. He needs to go up. Not vice versa.

I guess we'll see how much PBF wants some of that UK $$$$ Hatton brings.

PBF is not - nor has he ever been - a draw. Hatton is. When you put the butts in the seats, you call the shots. I am quite sure Hatton's - and PBF's - people understand that.

I guess we'll find out how the negotiations go.

Question for those of you that think that 140 benefits Hatton...Why?

Floyd will have absolutly 0 problems making that weight, he will simply be faster and harder for Hatton to catch.

Hatton's already at a pretty significant disadvantage in skill and experience. Making PBF cut to fight Hatton at 140 (apparrently the only weight he's effective at) will help level the playing field, though not completely.

Hatton's still the 140 Champ. Why not have Floyd come down so he can try for one he missed. If Floyd can make 140, like all his crybaby fanboys say, then WTF does it matter?

The linear 140 champ is the challenger? In any event Hatton has alreay said he'd fight Floyd at 147 although he would train as if it was a 140 fight to preserve his speed. I've said it before and I'll say it now, Hatton stops Mayweather in the championship rounds, if the fight happens I'm going to have bragging rights for a while.

Hatton is a draw but pbf is the bigger name. Pbf wins easily.

Do you promise? Also if Hatton wins a UD will you re-register as oldanalqueen? The bookies called it a long shot when I bet on Hatton to stop Tyszu and when I bet on JC to beat Lacy.

IF they fight you are toast. This is so much of a mismatch I am not interested in it. I mean 3 years ago.

it doesnt matter what weight they fight at 140 or 147 there is still a championship belt on the line. floyd is the linear 147 pound champ and hatton is the linear 140 pound champ. i dont care what weight its at as long as it is made. and ill be rooting for hatton but betting on pbf.

Why does Mayweather need Hatton?... stupid
You're crazy, Hatton's resume is loaded

Juan Urango - Was an undefeated champ before Hatton got to him

Carlos Maussa - KO'd "Vicious" Vivian Harris

Ben Tackie - Yeah he had lost 2 in a row coming into the fight, but the guy did knock out Teddy Reid

Tony Pep - The Hugman knocked him out in 4 rounds, Floyd could only manage a a decision against him
