Default Neither

I dont love the guy nor hate. For the most part i'll say his TV attitude is all show, all about the Pay per view numbers. I met him a couple of times here in Vegas , also met Tyson many, many times. They were totally mellow and nowhere near what they appear to be like on TV. Both took photos with me, signed stuff, hung out.

I'll say that Mayweather is easily the best pound for pound fighter around today.

I love watching him as a fighter. Time (certainly this next fight) will help determine if he belongs among the all-time greats.

I'm a big fan of Floyd Mayweather.

I am a big fan of Mayweather and also like Hatton a lot as well. I think Hatton may win the fight because I'd be willing to be the farm that Mayweather will be running the entire time trying to stay away from Hatton. If the fight goes to the judges Ricky will win based on his agressive style.

Default Floyd doesnt run!

When has Floyd ever ran in a fight? He didnt run against Dela Hoya thats for sure and Hoya was a much stronger puncher then Hatton is. Poeple say Floyd runs, what he does is stand there and box your head off in a offensive yet very odd defensive style. Floyd wins an easy decision.

Floyd will definately be fighting backing up in this fight. Hatton will place constant pressure on him like he's never seen before. Hatton is the closest thing to Joe Frazier to come along in many, many years. They should call him mini-Joe Frazier. Floyd will HAVE to stick and move, stick and move if he wants to survive because Hatton will always be coming forward.

I can see it now, round 1 - Hatton comes out and starts blasting away at Floyd. Floyd is so shocked that he gives a sly grin as he backs up.

I think he's just selling the fight and is probably a decent guy.

My prediciton: Mayweather unanimous decision (in a very uneventful fight) 116-112

This is one of the fights that true boxing fans have been waiting for. Something we could finally sink our teeth into and say “I would pay to see THAT fight. When it comes to Floyd Mayweather controversy has been following him throughout his entire career as well as his personal life. Many things have been called to question when proper attention should be focusing on why has he never fought someone who would truly put his skills to the test? Some may reply, “Well what about Oscar De La Hoya, what about Arturo Gotti? They were known as respectable fights in their right”. My reply to that is what about them? Did Mayweather really win that fight between him and Oscar or was it really a win for De La Hoya to lose seeing as he is the promoter for the up incoming fight on December 8, 2007. Undeniably we have to give attention to the fact that Mayweather has been ranked number #1 pound for pound fighter. He is one of the best BOXERS in the sport. Any fighter who decides to get in the ring with him must know or should know they need a game plan to even try to contend with his agility, and hand speed to even have a remote chance of winning. That being said Ricky Hatton has made his remained pleasantly humble within the media as the people’s champion, being someone we can relate to. Let’s not take away from the fact that this down to earth young man has been through some fights that have been knockdown drag out WARS! His gentlemanly exterior seems to shred off once entering the ring and this tenacious immovable object of a human weapon is raging at his opponent with nothing but malice in his heart. Let me be clear folks, we are in for a hell of a fight. Both contenders know each other’s weakness and strengths, neither has ever faced someone like the other. What my prediction is both fighters must be prepared to neutralize the other’s strengths and exploit each weakness. But I feel that once they enter the ring the determining factor will be superior fighting capabilities, heart and who is willing to go the distance for the prize!
