    great fight. yeah cotto did run, but in the same respect mosley wasnt going out throwing and trying to win. cotto actually landed more effective shots in the 12th and that is the whole goal of boxing, so i cant blame him, especially when his corner told him he was winning. Anyone who questions either guys will in this fight doesnt know boxing, this was a brutal, brutal fight.
    When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

      God I cant wait for the FM - Hatton fight, Ricky will probably get his **** kicked in but hopefully it'll be a stormer.

      Super read for anyone actually iterested in Ricky Hatton...http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/spo...cle2863107.ece

      Hatton doesn’t care that the boxing writers give him little chance against Mayweather. Thomas Hauser, perhaps the most respected American writer, rates Hatton, but says he will lose fighting Mayweather at the heavier welterweight division. Adam Smith, a close friend of the Hattons, and Sky Sports’ boxing commentator, gives him a 2-out-of-10 shot. Many American writers have not been so kind.

      Hatton will shadow-box his way through the jitters on December 8, as he always does. At 7pm, as the first bell approaches, he will walk to the ring with Graham, Kayes, his cuts man, Mick Williamson, and, depending on their availability, with either Wayne Rooney or David Beckham carrying his belts.

      When Blue Moon is played, the lucky 3,900 who won the ballot to be in the arena for the big fight, the 10,000 watching on closed-circuit screens around the casino, and tens of thousands at home, will scream along to the words. Then Mayweather will arrive, and we will see whether Hatton can become the world’s best boxer, or simply remain its most amiable ambassador.

          Can't wait. Even if I wasn't a Floyd Mayweather fan I'd still buy all his fights just to listen to Roger in his corner. Roger is the ****** man. You know that every time he opens his mouth he's gonna say some akward, vulgar and hilarious ****. He's the star of 24/7, not Floyd, Hatton or Oscar. I wish Roger was my uncle.
          When you reach the upper level, your mind body and soul must be one.

              A nice article about the Hatton - Mayweather fight and I agree with the majority of what it says, unfortunately.

              Mayweather by boring UD.

                and another excellent article as well. It's weird I know in my heart of hearts that the fight will probably suck, yet I am still very excited.

                  I think the 24-7 may be building up some false hope for hatton fans. I mean, he looks great, but to me this is a mismatch and will likely be a boring fight. That said, I am for some reason excited for it as well.,

                    You'd be surprised, most all of my friends that follow boxing do not think Hatton wins, a lot of the uneducated fight fans are the ones thinking Hatton will "Knock that punk out".

                      In my mind Hatton is only +190 on the moneyline for a reason. If he was that big of an underdog he would be like +400 or something. Vegas knows something. I think this fight is closer then alot of people think. Hatton in my mind is better then alot of people give him credit for.

                        yeah, that is the point of the show tho. Hardcore fans will buy the fight regardless. Capturing the uneducated ones = cash money

                              If Oscar can't even hurt him, what makes you think Hatton can knock him out?

                              You think Hatton hits harder?

                                Oscar is 34 years old. He isnt the Oscar that everybody used to know. Hatton is in the prime of his career. We will see who hits harder after tommorow's fight.
