I'll be honest, I don't know a hell of a lot about Floyd, but I saw him on Cribs and he seems like an ss lol. Not that a boxer should be nice and cuddly but still, I hope Hatton wins.

This is exactly what Floyd wants and expects. It's mostly an act to generate more interest in the fight. He's playing the villain role to add to counter Hatton's hero role. And you cannot ignore the race angle either. It's gonna be Rocky vs Creed all over again.

This is how uninformed casual fans will view the fight:

Here you have Ricky Hatton the hard-nosed blue collar Brit who represents everything that's good and had to work hard for everything he's got is going against the cocky, loud-mouthed, straight from the hood Mayweather who thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread.

A lot of white people out there are absolutely praying that Hatton smashes Mayweather's face in this Saturday. But it's not going to happen though.

Yeah but I'm all for Hatton and I doubt he will walk this or anything, but Mayweather is playing into his hands, hasn't he been intentionally wearing Manchester United shirts or something? And he says he's just a fat man? As if Ricky didn't already want to kick his ass.. there's confidence, and then there's stupidity. Floyd seems to be on the line.

Floyd Jr. = boringest fighter of ALL TIME.

Hoping Hatton kills him with the quickness, but I always hope this and it never happens.

Sucks this is on the same time as a high profile MMA event. It's going to be tough to watch both.

On Hattons best day and Floyd worst...he doesnt have the same quickness as Floyd. Best bet for Ricky is to jump on Floyd early since Floyd starts off slow because he spends 2-3 rounds feeling out a fighter. Floyd rarely ever goes away from his gameplan to outbox an opponent especially one who relies on the inside fighting, physical style Ricky has.

This fight could either be a good one or one that resembles Floyd vs Gatti. Either way Hatton wont be winning the fight unless he baits Floyd to go toe to toe with him...try and challenge and mess with Floyds pride and get him off his game. Then and only then is he open for an upset...dont see it happening.

Just hope the fight is better than the previews on HBO which are comedy. But they were comedy when he fought Oscar and that fight bombed.

I hope like hell that this is a good fight but Hatton has a tendency to hold and grab and Mayweather's defense is so good that he makes fights boring sometimes. I hope Hatton hurts Mayweather early, so Mayweather actually starts fighting...otherwise, it will be a less than spectacular decision in favor of Mayweather.

Just watched the weigh-in earlier, pretty intense, another face-to-face. Sounds like Hatton took all of Manchester with him!!

"Who've you come here to see? Floyd?"

"NOOO!"

"Me?"

"YEEAAH!"

Amazing.
