Mayweather quit boxing and came back to defeat Oscar De Lahoya not an easy way to make a living, even past his peak Oscar is a class act, he is now hanging around in the hope that Hatton will win and he can fight Ricky in Great Britain, that would be another big pay night for a great, if past his best fighter.
Can Hatton win ? Of course he can there are only two people fighting, him and Floyd Mayweather if you say it fast it’s not so bad is it ? Hatton is 29 and Floyd is 30 so there isn’t anything in it as far as age goes. We have to accept the accuracy of this despite the evidence of our eyes which tells us that Hatton is several years older than Mayweather and they haven’t been easy years either by the look of him.
Floyd by contrast looks nothing like a boxer so, for someone with his record you need to start wondering why, he could pass for a cabaret singer or male model, the reason is of course that old phrase invented for ‘Sugar Ray Robinson’. He’s the best ‘pound for pound’ fighter in the world. Floyd also comes from a background which offers few ways out, crime, sports or a communist revolution are the best bets, he knows what he is fighting for, nothing less than the survival of his whole extended family is at stake as he sees it and that is a good motivation.
Mayweather came back for Oscar because he knew he could take him and the same goes here but Hatton is no De Lahoya and he will unfortunately find that out, Floyd is the real deal and Hatton is fearless and durable he hit’s very hard as well but you have to catch Floyd to hit him and while you are trying to do that he will be hitting Ricky so much that he will think he is surrounded, Hatton’s main chance is complacency by a fighter who has been toying with retirement at the age of 30 good luck son, you will need it.
