Come on, Tommy.
jey you've been hating on hatton since i knew you, infact ive never heard you say a good thing about him.
by the way jet you said hatton got slaughtered in the press stateside but i seen an interview with hatton on friday fight night and he said he loved it in the u.s and the press were great with him.
I've said lots of positive things about him, I just don't think he's "legend"...
You can't defend his last performance though, he looked like crap, compared to other fights he's had, and this is supposed to "be his time" right now, when he's peaking, right?
I've never seen so many clinches, so many one-sided clinches
in a long time, coming from someone who was supposed to be so quick, and such a pressure fighter with a great body attack.
I'm not a fan-boy, so I don't hate on anyone. I've said lots of negative things about PBF, too, just for the record.
Hatton is pretty one-dimensional, and when faced with a southpaw, who had decent footwork and defense, it was almost the end of him. Blah blah 147, I know I know.
There wasn't anything that impressive about his win against Urango, that's for sure. (for the record, I watched the fight again, last night...)
but this is boxing, so a moderate looking Hatton and a crappy looking JLC will meet in a few months time...boxing will make everyone forget about their last performances and market the fight as a barn-burner and everyone will be happy, since these guys are evenly matched, and will stand toe-to-toe and knock each other silly.
