    A fight in which he embarrassed himself, not really an argument considering he was horrible to watch and had no friends outside of yourself (Betty) and ESB’s self proclaimed hardest man scurlantings.

    Witter was so weird when in front of the camera talking, I couldn't watch it was that cringe..I'd pick Hatton with Graham and at his prime to beat Witter, but there was a handful of performances where I was glad he wasn't in with Witter, but you could say that about all fighters..Hatton>>Witter with a scare or two on the way

    Did Hatton really ever get over his first defeat could his fragile mentality have taken that and got back to the top in his 18th fight let alone later on in his career
    Oh dear oh dear boxings become a popularity contest
    Hence why the sports in such a dire way
    Ah bless

    There’s a difference between losing to and beating elite level fighters, which Hatton did and then losing to top level fighters every time you move up, which is what Witter did.

    Who do you consider Witters greatest victory? I know it’s not on the level of a Tszyu, but....

    The question is whether Bud could have survived against prime Hatton at 140 or just ducked that Floyd style.

    Remember Fatton's best weight was 140, which Floyd could make, but fought Ricky at 147.

    Gamboa was quicker than Bud! He actually won the early rounds before Crawford adjusted.

    Bud punches harder than Hatton did at 140 and is a far better finisher, Floyd was just a league above Hatton.

    It means Gamboa`s speed was bothering the more skilled Bud and Hatton didn`t have that kind of speed so would have been easily outskilled by Crawford and easier to hit than the faster Gam.

    No but Hatton brings a whole different ball game at 140 which was his elite weight unlike Gamboa who was and should be a career 130 guy who was coming off a 12 month layoff at 135 which he didn’t and still doesn’t have any elite business at.

    Horn is a total bum who Crawford just toyed with while testing the waters at 147 Crawford could have ended that fight whenever he wanted to, he barely got out of second gear. He would have to take Hatton a lot more seriously as Hatton is many levels above a scrub like Horn. I would still pick Crawford to win a UD or by late stoppage.

    Definitely would be his best win, but who has Crawford fought that has a style like Hatton? I don’t think I can think of anyone?
    Hatton was a pressure fighter, once he found his rhythm he was relentless, I don’t think Crawford has faced anyone like Hatton, but I still think Crawford adapts and sparks him out pretty early tbh
