Ricky Hatton V FLoyd Mayweather



December 8th Ricky Hatton and Floyd 'Prettyboy' Mayweather go toe to toe on the 8th of Dec in Las Vegas.
The welterweight clash pits Britain's current world light-welterweight champion, undefeated in his 43 fights, against the man rated best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
Mayweather has won world titles at five weight levels and defeated Oscar De La Hoya for the WBC light-middleweight title in his last fight. He remains undefeated in his 38 professional fights.

Hatton's no slouch either, his fights include his memorable defeat of Kostya Tszyu for the IBF World title and victory over Luis Collazo to become a two-weight world champion.

Mayweather is a arrogant but brilliant and skilled fighter, Ricky is as tough as nails down to earth curry and beer loving everyman.
I'm naturally going to be cheering Ricky on-I've watched him being interviewed lots of times and find him adorable. There was a great write up about him in the times the other week and although his habit of letting himself go between training is unorthodox, it seems to work for him.
I am going to trundle down to the bookies later to put 10 of my beloved Euros and also 10 of the paramour's beloved Euros on him.
It's pay per view. It should be awesome. Anyone else watching/betting?

Hello. I am placing two bets first is on Mayweather to win in one of the first three rounds (not sure which one yet but 50-1) and the second on Hatton to win on points. Ding Ding!!

So tough you do it twice eh Docky? I like it.
Hedge betting Nonny, I think it will go the distance myself. But I'm hoping Hatton take him out in the fifth or sixth.

I want to see Senor de la Hoya fight in his dress.
Kidding.
Mr. M and I used to love to watch the fights years ago until it was Holyfield on his knees getting the shit knocked out of him by Bowe. The look on his face was of such distress that it kind of put me off the sport.

hah!@ the dress comment.
Yeah, boxing is pretty brutal, and the idea of two gown men knocking each other senseless is a strange one. But I still cannot resist watching the big fights, and I used to LOVE Ultimate Fight Championship and had many a drunken night betting, hopping up and down and screaming at the TV.

Call me a big flowery girls blouse tottering down the road on 4" heels in bad weather with a tiny leopard-skin skirt, pouffy 80's hair and bubble-print leggings, while littering the road with feminine hygiene products and singing "I Feel Pretty", if you must, but I can't get into the boxing at all. Don't get it. don't like it, don't watch it.

I did like that Barry McGuigan though. He was a right wee champ.

You...lady you.
What about the power? the rolling nexks, the bouncing and down, the eye contact? the sweat? the blood? the body punches? the rabbit punches? the uppercuts? the bravado? the 'dirt' talking? the fancy assed entrances? the left right combos? the hooks? the spitting? the corner guys? The vaseline? the swellings? the sound a ribcage makes as it takes a shot? the shouting? the money? the pitchers of drink? the hollering? the clapping? the swearing? the leaping up and down screaming at the telly? The 'ooooohhhh that had to hurt, are his legs his own?' the wincing? The second pitcher of rum? the high fiving? the hand full of crisps that almost chokes you so you wash it down with an industrial sized gulp of rum and leap into the air to scream, 'you've got him you've got him, get 'em on the ropes!!"
I don't get it Miss Sam, what's not to like?

I'm with Sam. Boxing is barbaric.

Spit, snot, ear biting and silly outfits. Meh.

HOWEVER - I think I would enjoy kick-boxing. I just don't want to look at it.

You would, UFC rocks! Although that's not kickboxing. Google Ramon Dekker and watch some of his fights, oh my god! He was just the ultimate. He's a Muai thai fighter. Awesome, totally awesome.

Hatton's funny. I mean he looks like a bag of spanners but is quite a witty fucker and not an egomaniacal bullshit talking prat like most pugilists.

Should be worth watching.

Mike Tyson kind of wrecked boxing for me....but then if you're talking about our cute wee David Tua, well, that's entirely another story.

Mike in his heyday was a hell of a fighter, but then he lost all credibility with his shenanigans.
BBB, I agree, it should be good. Plus the more Mayweather's camp -especially his uncle- talk shit about him, the more I want to see Hatton win.

Ya just can't beat UFC, but the Calzaghe fight a few weeks ago was fookin brilliant.

I missed it Sheep, but I heard it was something else. Actually a taxi driver gave me and almost blow by blsow account of it. I head it looked shaky for him at the off and Kessler looked particularly good, but he started to drop power around 5 and 6. I suppose the fitness counts a lot when you're going the distance. I don't know how they can even keep their arms up after a full fight, let alone throw a punch, but they do.

It was like watching a Rocky movie, only good.

Did you have money on him? I like nothing more than putting little bets on fights and finals, cranks up the tension. Even if it's only a tenner-actually it is only ever a tenner. I couldn't face losing more than that, I would be gloom.

Na, I'm a very bad loser so I generally don't bet - hissyfits galore. Its not a pretty sight.

50/1 on the yank to win in one of the early rounds? I know Hatton is hard as nails but surely thats worth a sly little punt... I think Hatton will be outclassed. The yank will reign supreme.

Anonymous nonny said...

The 50/1 odds are sure to change as the fight approches I reckon the I can't make up my mind between the first and second round, imagine 100 euro at 50 to 1,even a fiver will do!!

11:51 a.m.  
Blogger fatmammycat said...

I think it will go the distance, Mayweather may be the more skilled of the two but Hatton's a terrier, he'll never give in.

12:56 p.m.  
Anonymous nonny said...

If it goes the extra mile perhaps Hatton will win on points, odds there are only 3/1 nevertheless I shall stick a few shillings on it. Anyway may the best man win and I hope your bet is fruitful!
