Hatton = Zab Judah with a bigger gas tank?

The closer to the Hatton-Mayweather event we get, the less optimistic everyone seems to be about Hatton’s chances. It’s like it was fun to believe the hype leading up to this fight but now that it’s time to get in the ring everyone is steeling themselves for the reality of the situation.

I on the other hand am sticking to my guns and sacrificing goats to the Elder Gods in the hopes that Hatton takes out that cocky motherfucker Mayweather. Of course, the Elder Gods care not for boxing, no matter how many goats I bleed. So let’s hope this tidbit of info proves prophetic:

Hatton watched as Zab Judah had success with Mayweather by pressuring him early in their 2006 fight at the Thomas & Mack Center. But as Judah tired, Mayweather picked up the pace and won going away.

Hatton has vowed he won’t get tired and will keep the pressure on Mayweather throughout.

“You wonder what might have happened if Zab had been able to sustain that pressure,” Hatton said. “I know I’ll be able to sustain it. We’ll see how good Floyd is when he’s facing that heat.”

    It’d be nice to see someone take Floyd down a notch, but I don’t think Hatton’s the guy to do it. Hatton likes to wear his opponents out with body shots, but Floyd’s just too fast for him to catch. If De La Hoya–who’s a much better pure boxer than Hatton is–couldn’t pin Floyd down long enough to do major damage, I don’t see Hatton being able to keep him in one place either.

    Still, you can always hope, right?

  • RT says:

    I hope he can land to the body a lot early, clinch, rough him up and turn it into a fight that should zap some of floyds speed and get him off his game.

  • RT says:

    Ricky’s known for holding and hitting and that should help big time

  • Erin says:

    Try for Mars/Ares, Fightlinker. I’m sure the God of War can include boxing in his repertoire. If that doesn’t work, try hitting up St. Sebastian, as he’s the patron saint of athletes.

  • kentyman says:

    Hatton should take Mayweather down with an inside leg trip and exploit his complete lack of jiu-jitsu.

  • Accomando says:

    “…De La Hoya–who’s a much better pure boxer than Hatton is…”

    And he’s like 7 years older too.

    Hatton will finish the gameplan that De la Hoya started. Hopefully, Hatton lands a decisive body-shot in the late rounds to end it before the judges give it to mayweather.

  • Fightlinker,

    All of this Mayweather talk reminded me of a Youtube video that was promoted shortly after the time Mayweather called out the UFC or during the build up to the De La Hoya fight. I forget…

    It should really piss you off and probably explains your anger all at the same time.


  • Thomas says:

    How many Bulls, Cows, Goats and Ex-Girlfriends do i need to sacrifice to have mayweather lose?

  • Xavier says:

    Peter McNeely 2K7 needs to go away now.

  • godzillad says:

    Castillo crippled Mayweather with body shots, and Hatton uses them more than he does jabs.

    Hatton by 12th round stoppage.

  • Erin says:

    Thomas, I beleive the correct formula would be:

    10 goats, 5 ex-girlfriends, 3 cows and 1 bull. Higher weight=more sacrificial power. This, of course, assumes that your ex girlfriends weigh more than goats and less than cows.

  • scorchamatic says:

    man, i’d love to see hatton win this fight, but it’s not going to happen. hatton will take 5 shots to land one and mayweather’s defence is too good to let that one slip in. i’d love to see mayweather lying on the canvas in a pool of his own blood, but i don’t see it happening. hope i’m wrong though.

  • Archivist says:

    Castillo won their first fight, plain grinding him on the inside, in my view.
    In their second fight, Floyd wisened up and adjusted to it easily.So i am totally fantasizing relentless pressure, similar to Hatton-Tszyu (Rabbit punches and uppercuts to the jewels). Ricky does have a reasonable chance. I certainly hope he makes the most of it.
