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?
