theres a bit of contradiction there jet, when you say hattons all heart then compare him to ruiz ??.Jetcar said:Here is my two cents:
Rahman: under-achiever extraordinaire
Margarito: this guy sucks. No defense, no footwork, but has heavy hands. Some bad losses on his record.
Hatton: one dimensional "mini-John-Ruiz" (I'm preparing for Tommygunn's rebuttal -- I imagine he'll ban me for having slighted his hero... ) All heart, questionable skills.
Valuev: this guy is the worst champ (HW) in my opinion in the last 5-6 years. Right behind him is John Ruiz's pathetic reign....
Guys who should have done more (i.e.: waste of talent):
Lewis: skilled, but didn't do much when it counted the most
(should have rematched Klit, in my opinion)
Roy Jones: skilled but never fought the big fights when it mattered. (i.e.: Calzaghe, Darius M., etc) Beating Ruiz was a hands-down gimmee.
Floyd Mayweather: needs to fight better opposition at more meaningful times in their careers. Fighting Oscar helps his bottom line, nothing else.
i will say hatton does fight one way and it is forward which ive always found very exciting.
