    Heres Junior's comments on the Hatton-Castillo fight 24 hours before the fight happened...

    "I dont see it as much of a fight, to be honest. Castillo is going to struggle at his new weight & i think his best days are behind him.
    "I see this like Lennox lewis v Mike Tyson a few years back. It would have been great two years earlier- & this is the same"

    & How right Witter was. What an awful fight, both Hatton & Castillo happy to grab & hold & fight dirty, & then Ricky lands a left hook to the body, Castillo turns around, walks away & then goes on one knee & takes the full count, when it was obvious he could have continued. Castillo only there for the payday, & what a waste of time that fight was. Even paul Dempsey was apologetic afterwards to the paying customers.

    Of course the legions of Hatton nuthuggers will be over the 'blue' moon, but that win dont impress me much.

    Next for Ricky, an MBE & hall of fame. I give Hatton credit for that, hes got a sharp business brain. Maximum profit, minimum risk. hes a hero cos he has popped off a couple of old timers with big reputations from former glories when in their prime.

    Even Bob Arum was going on about how Ricky couldnt lose before the fight, & when Hatton gives up a belt to fight someone, you know theres something fishy going on.

    & thank **** for Max Kellerman. Told it how it was, but we couldnt get to hear him cos Setanta decided to give us the usual suspects instead...

    But I dont want to rain on Rickys parade, cos that would be out of character for me. So have a whale of a time, & dont mind me.

    both are big inside fighters, so the tieing up was inevitable.

    still a good entertaining fight imo, but if you were watching in the hope that hatton got "exposed" then I guess you wouldn't have enjoyed the fight very much.

    Youd be more than happy to jump on his **** if he was Scottish and you know it.

    He won the fight and for that he should get some credit. However I am not going over the top as their is some validity to Witter comments. To prove himself the best of his era then he needs to take care of Witter and sort out this domestic issue. There is no excuse really. Then he needs to fight the younger fighters like himself at their peak such as Cotto, PBF, Malignaggi, Ajose, Margarito and co then we can determine his true standing. Not sure that beating a 33year old Castillo makes him an all time great however he has a chance to achieve greatness.

    There was nothing wrong with this fight, the KO or the oponent.

    This blind hate of all things English is getting embarrasing.

    Hatton is a class act in and out of the ring - although I didnt like his seemingly innocent friendship with late racist Bernrd Manning.

    Good win against Castillo but it wont secure his legacy as they will always be question marks over the Mexicana's form.

    For me he has to beat Witter and may be Malignalli, then move up full time to 147, and fight Cotto/Margarito/PBF/Mosely

    :roll: Fail to see what you have against Hatton, and this bias obscures any legitimate criticisms against Ricky.

    it's so predictable the dissing.i'm not getting carried away,i still don't think he beats mayweather,cotto,de la hoya or mosley but he deserves credit for disposing of castillo in the way he did.castillo actually fought well and showed enough in there to suggest he was no shop worn fighter.to take him out with one body shot like that was mighty impressive.
