none of those were ko punches. when a fighter gets hit and there in trouble is when you can judge. just like when hatton was hurt in the last round round against collazo.
He proved he can take a good shot. I cant wait for floyd to fight hoya. then his chin will be tested wont it. Come on Goldenboy. I see a big left hook geting in somwhere in that fight. Still floyd has a good chin hehe. Might take it well

Would you all agree with me when I say that Kostya Tszyu is, was and more than likely always will be the greatest Light Welterweight Professional Boxer of all time? :cool:

I would say that he had a style that most guys at #140 could not handle specially the right hand and yes as far as a guy that has stayed at#140 yes he was the man I always hope he would put on #7 and fight D.L.H to see how he would do. and I always wondered why Floyd would not get in to the mix specially as he got older and slower.

i would put kostya at 1 just now because hatton hasn't finnished his career yet. if hatton can beat castillo you'd have to say he was the est because he's beaten everybody at the weight.

I think if Ricky Hatton can come through Castillo and then anouther mayjour name he will be ranked very close to the top for lightwelter. Although Julio Cesar Chavez was a great fighter.

In my opinion it would either be out of Hatton, Chavez or Tszyu.

Yes. :thumbsup: I like Chavez for the best ever at light welter but Haton hasnt retired yet has he. Anouther few majour fights and RETIRE. He could become the best ever for 140. In my opinion hes already the best fighter ever to come out of britain. Come on Ricky Fatton.

#2 lloyd honeyghan.
#3 ricky hatton.[/QUOTE]

cool.

I have never realy been a huge fan of lennox. His styale just didnt realy catch me but he is obviously Britains best ever Heavyweight. Yes Lennox lewis is at the top of the british list but i am a huge fan of Hatton.

Frank Bruno is always in my list. Love that bloke lol. Big Frank.

Also like Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank and i spose love him or hate him naz has to be there somewhere.

look bud ive let you dig youself a hole you cant get out of here. ive never said in any post that hatton would beat chavez. what ive said is he would win a close UD with hatton at 140 and that he's my GOAT at 130. :rolleyes:

i also said that hatton hasn't finished his career yet and my views on a chavez vs hatton fight could change.
