would the result have been the same as last night's fight?

IMO it would. Cortez single-handedly broke Hatton's rhythm by allowing Floyd to use his elbows while preventing Hatton from doing his own thing. Cortez thought Hatton did things which were more imagined than real, telling Hatton to stop holding when it was actually Floyd doing much of it.

Just goes to show you how much the refs affect the outcome of a fight. With an unbiased and objective ref, Floyd wouldve lost to Hatton like Malignaggi. It wouldve been much closer, but Floyd would still lose to a Hatton with his rhythm unimpeded by a really fair referee, and not just one who proclaims himself to be such.

Bottom line

Floyd was too good and won.


Paulie is NOT Floyd and this was a TOTALLY different weight division.

Hatton stilled would've been KOd by one of the best fighters of our time. Floyd is too much for Hatton IMO.

He probably wouldn't have stopped him. He would have won none the less. :thumbsup:

Sure. If a hundred illegal elbows,and a ref basically telling Hatton to stop fighting means nothing.
I don't think it was the elbows that put him to sleep and if Hatton didn't try to grab him so much...he wouldn't have eaten so many bows. Besides...the ringpost landed the best punch of the night :laugh:. Hatton was dominated that night...just give it up to PBF.

Wow...that's all I can say...
No whilst that is crap you are definitely capable of saying 100% morre bollox than that. ;) Haha

Floyd won though and this fight V a differing fighter at a differing weight has absolutely NADDA to suggest a different outcome against Floyd.

I think you probably agree with my latter statement, am I right?

If so all I need you to do is pretend I never made the former statement and say- Roy Jones beats Ricky and then you can quote me with a thumbs up and say PREACH.

Do you like the new avatar?

You had Hopkins winning the Calzaghe and Taylor fights too right?
No I had Cortez winning it :laugh:

Yeah I felt Hopkins won the first fight, but I thought it would end in a draw. The second fight I felt Hopkins won by decision, and I had Hopkins beating Cal too. And I have good reasons why on all 3 of thise fights in how he won; so it's not just because I'm a Hopkins fan.
