Who you got?
I'm going to Sea World tommorow with family in town, but will hustle out of there to watch this brawl.
Should be a great fight. Both guys want to produce a classic. We shall see.

Ummmm......Diego Corrales was killed in a motorcycle accident a month and a half ago.
Hatton is fighting Jose Luis Castillo.

$hit, this is funny.
I say Hatton by a KO. (Can you KO a dead guy?)

I was reading two boxing items at once and screwed up my poll. Can a moderator help me out?

Ricky Hatton beats a corpse for sure. I've got him winning against the live body Castillo as well. Should be an entertaining fight , though. Both guys have go forward philosophies that tend to make things entertaining.

Hatton. I am lookin forward to this one.

Hatton's entrance will be the highlight.
Nothing like a few thousand drunk Brit's singing Blue Moon.

That sure was a weak fight. That was the third hyped fight I have seen recently where one of the fighters is "shot".
Glad I did not pay for that one.

Hatton by KO in the 4th. I kind of feel bad for Hatton, because the announce team was already attempting to deminish his victory by claiming Castillo was a shot fighter. Hell, Steward declared as much about half a minute into the fight. Personally, I didn't think Castillo was doing nearly as bad as they claimed. In fact, I thought he won the 3rd round (though Lederman gave it to Hatton). He was landing some nice uppercuts in that round and I thought was doing OK. In the 4th Hatton just caught him with a perfect liver shot. It would have been better for Hatton's rep to struggle to a dramatic late round win rather to than to get him out as early as he did.
Hatton is going to have to go back up to welterweight to get any interesting fights. In his first and only foray into that weight class he struggled against a true welterweight in Collazo, but fighters such as Mosely and Mayweather aren't natural welterweights either, so guys like that would make for interesting fights. Floyd probably won't fight him, but if Mosely can't get Floyd into the ring (and it looks unlikely that he will), then I think Hatton-Mosely would be an interesting bout and one I'd pay to see.

I can't believe how weak those guys are at 140 lbs. I'm actually starting to train for shot at the all Marine team, and if that is what I'm looking at, I am gonna be knocking fkrs out left and right.
Anyway, I also gave the 3rd round to Castillo, because Hatton did nothing the last minute and Castillo did a nice job beating him up inside and using his balance to get shots off up close.
Castillo's punches looked S O S L O W.
His feet were too. It was a matter of time. After he lost that point for the low blow it was over for sure. Then that shot apparently rocked his ribs.
I'm a Hatton fan, so I am happy.
BUT.... Hatton has got to stop this BS holding. It's really boring, and getting very old very fast.
The last thing we need is another Vernon Forrest btchass wannabe.

Inferno, don't you think Floyd would leave Hatton a pulp? I wouldn't wish that on the kid.

: Hattons holding did get old fast. I would really like to see him fight some tougher oppositon. However I gained alot of respect for Hatton on how he aknowledged Diego Corrales after the fight and even brought Diegos wife into the ring after the fight. :thumbs: Hatton VS Barrera / or
Hatton vs Manny Paq./ or even Mayweather
