Dunno bro.

I just know he basically called Ricky a spot picker.

He feels he had the harder title fight, and that Ricky is catching Castillo at the right time, just like he did Kostya.

He said he wants to fight Ricky before the end of the year, we'll see if it happens.

If it does, Ricky UD 12. Paulie will have the other side of his face broken.

I say that with nothing but love and respect for Paulie though. Kid is tough as nails, and has some serious skills.

It's just that guys like Cotto and Hatton are on another level.

I like Paulie too. But the bottom line is Hatton and Castillo are the top dogs. Kostya was top when ricky fought him 90% of people said hatton was getting knocked out. When Ricky is retired in a couple of years I hope to see Paulie ruling 140 with his speed and movement.

Rightfully so . . . the fight contract says the fight is gonna be at 140 . . . so no big deal.

This is just a press release to HYPE UP the fight. Castillo have had problems with his weight before and I don't think he's gonna screw up his career by being careless again this time. He's not gonna blow out this opportunity.

Rules are rules..

If the fat bastard can't make his weight he shouldn't be getting the privileges of such great fights..

Castillo should just be a pro and make weight......

If Hatton pulls out i wouldn't blame him..

It isn't a matter of being a bitch..

Hatton is not trying to run from anyone.. If Castillo conveniently fails weight it is more like him looking for an out.....

theres no way that Castillo is the bigest threat in the 140lb division.

Its his second fight in the division, and the first one he won it by SD against a guy who was 15-0

You really think Hatton is going to give up a $3-5M purse? I don't think so. He would force Castillo to dry out and take off as much as he could, then he'd fight him anyway.

Too much money at stake here. I wonder how HBO would feel about it? They'd probably be a little peeved and I believe Hatton's contract is up with HBO after this fight.

Well nobody is CLAIMING that Castillo is the biggest threat at 140 buddy. I guess people like me is just HYPED UP to see how it's going to turn out knowing Castillo's fighting heart and his experience.

This is going to be war . . . and it's gonna be good until it last.

What is wrong with not fighting against a man, if the guy doesn't make weight? Hatton cuts down more weight than Castillo and I bet that he will be on weight. Also Castillo is now fighting at 140 instead of 135. There is no reason why he shouldn't make weight.

I haven't read the whole tread, I only read a few post and what the poster who created the thread posted about what BBC RADIO FIVE LIVE COMMNENTED.

It is a shame that many of you are talking about it in a such a way that makes me think that you guys don't know how to read.

Castillo said crystal clear, according to BBC RADIO ......" He was currently a comfortable three pounds over the limit when he took part in a public training session at the Top Rank gym in Las Vegas on Wednesday "

My question is, what is the big deal about being three pounds over the limit two days before the weigh in?

I agree, but the article is from wednesday and I thing the weigh in is on Friday, don't you think that this is just normal, I mean, I don't think is a big deal to be 3 lbs over the limit two days before.
