Agreed, watching the latest fight against Gatti and thought it was one of the best I've ever seen (Manny Pacquia Vs Marco Antonion Barrera was a great one to watch as well). The speed of Mayweather is phenomenal, it look like Gatti was fighting in slow motion some of the time!

Can't wait to see Mayweather Vs Hatton, if it happens

We had this thread a few weeks ago and I went for Hopkins, but since he has been defeated I suppose I'd agree with that. I'll go ffor Mayweather too.

Why do you think Hatton is a muppet? Fair enough I was sick for a long time of the overly biased English media hyping him up, but I think he's proved that he's a class act, a very aggressive, very tough fighter who I think would give the pretty boy something to think about. Think it could be a great fight, with Floyd winning but I wouldn't put money on it, I didn't expect Hatton to get past Tszyu

I'd have to pick Mayweather as well, that performance against Gatti sealed it. Heh, it's a shame though cause I'm not a Mayweather fan. Ah well, I'll live in hope ; )

I'd also like to know why you think Hatton is a muppet, ricey.

Hatton fought a string of bums before he got Tszyu and he only got Tszyu because Tszyu was kind enough to come over here.

Warren needs to take the diapers off Hatton and let him go over to the USA to fight PBF or Cotto. Hatton won't be able to get away with his rugby style over there.

That's fair enough, it's only the casual fans who thought Hatton was fighting top notch opponents back then. When the big fight finally materialized he got the job done when most people didn't give him a chance. I'm tired of all the abuse Hatton gets, especially when most of it has nothing to do with his boxing ability. I think he's a good fighter and a nice guy, lets see where he takes things from here.

Yeah and all the talk is of Mayweather Wright match up bringing together 1 and 3 in the pound 4 pound ratings, but would it be too much of a weight difference for Mayweather.

PS: Mayweather is an absoulute class boxer and excels at all aspects of the sweet science, Hatton is somewhat of a likeable brawler.

Hatton's faught 3 times in the USA and once in Germany , albeit he wasn't fighting world champions but then again he's only ever faught 1 world champ .

Hatton would beat Cotto , Mayweather hatton is 50/50 only god knows how it would play out .

My list is :
1.El Terrible(said in thick Mexican accent)
2. Floyd
3.Winky
4.Martin Castillo
5.Barrera
