    Default Pacquiao-Hatton fight

    Does anyone beside me still love the sweet science? I was SUPPOSED to be in Vegas this weekend, but my social plans feel through (the bete noire of ESFJs). So, instead, I will be getting drunk starting at 2 with Kentucky Derby coverage, then through dinner and culminating in the fight, possibly at a Mexican bar. Predictions?

    Can't see Hatton cutting the mustard. Manny boxed a great match against de la Hoya - he's improved alot. The fight he lost against Marquez was close. Being unpatriotic, Hatton is a jumped up club fighter, a boozer. He's lost the heart for it. Merryweather showed him as a paper tiger and took him to pieces. I'll give Hatton 7 rounds at most, although he can take a punch, I don't think it'll do him much good.

    Bad luck about the missed bout, Merc. Wish I was there.

    Hatton will tire out and Pacquiao will win with a late round knockout.

    I'm really hoping this will lead to a Pacquiao vs. Mayweather, Jr. fight. Though even more than that I'd like to see Mayweather in an MMA match against somebody like B.J. Penn.

    See, I rate Hatton a little better than you two. I watched Hatton-Mayweather live at a bar back home in Philly, and Mayweather didn't take over that fight until the third round, when he caught Hatton and cut him over the eye. It was a flawless performance after that, but Hatton showed some balls going after the best P4P fighter in the world, maybe the best in my lifetime. Pacquiao defeated a De La Hoya who A) was done before the fight; and B) had a history of coming up small in his biggest fights even when he was in his prime. Hatton also apparently really trained for this fight, and cut out the extracurricular nonsense. There is also some controversy in his circle right now (see below link), which could either motivate Ricky or distract him.. I still favor Pacquiao slightly, but I think it could go to a decision. I just can't foresee a Pacquiao KO unless Hatton really craps the bed early.

    BTW, how weird are Floyd Mayweather, Sr. and Roger Mayweather?

    Hatton stands a snowballs chance in hell IMHO. But that's why they have the fights, eh?

    I'd have to go Mayweather over Pacquiao. If Floyd trains hard and has his heart and his head in a fight, he beats anyone in the world at 154 or under.

    I'd like to believe you, but I don't, I think Floyd retired to duck Margarito, Pacquiao and Williams. He doesn't have the stomach for it anymore.

    I think he was sick of the grind, but I agree that he didn't want his record tarnished. When you're undefeated, I think that is always in the back of your mind. I still think he's better than any of them, though.

    Makes me miss the old days when they fought for the glory of it and not the record. Whether he's truly better than them? That's a question without an answer in my book. And the one man who can answer it is at home washing his tights...

    Falcarius is going to watch it on the box. He is not sure who going to win, it should be interesting. Pacquiao has a bigger advantage the longer the fight goes on.
