    They did point out the beating Hatton was putting on him throughout the fighter. After one round, Manny said that he didn't think Castillo had a chance due to Hattons speed and accuracy, not usually an attribute the media had given Hatton a lot of credit for.

    In Manchester, Hatton was a ball of excitement whose body shots were just outright vicious.

    In America, Hatton's been rather boring and seems to wanna hold more than punch.

    HBO doesn't need to say anything cuz Hatton's not doing himself any favors with his style. Castillo was NOT initiating those clinches. He was lucky to get the nod against Collazo and he put on a snoozefest against Urango who isn't even in his galaxy. When those are your first two impressions on your new network you've dug yourself a hole. I like Hatton alot. I always have. I just have a feeling that the weight fluctuations inbetween fights have really taken a toll on him and he can no longer fight at a frantic pace like he used to. He controls the fight by jumping in throwing a punch or 2 and then holding. It's like he's recharging his batteries every few minutes with a clinch. I see many subtle differences and I think they are weight-correlated.
