Thread: Mayweather vs Hatton

  1. #16
    I was quite disappointed with the outcome, but I'd rather see a clearcut victory than a judge's decision. Good match throughout.
    Jack Dempsey: "What would happen if a year-old baby fell from a fourth-floor window onto the head of a burly truck driver, standing on the sidewalk?

    It's practically certain that the truckman would be knocked unconscious. He might die of brain concussion or a broken neck.

    Even an innocent little baby can become a dangerous missile when its bodyweight is set into fast motion."

    A KO is undebatable normally.

    The judges scores up to that time was about right. Check the accuracy rate of Mayweather's punches and the number compared to Hatton's.

    I wouldv'e only given Hatton two rounds. He did do a good job of getting Floyd on the ropes but hedidn't land too many solid shots. the punch stats tell all.


    Mayweather Hatton
    total punches: 129 of 329 39% 63 of 372 17%
    Jabs 29 of 72 40% 11 of 63 17%
    Power punches 100 of 257 39% 52 of 309 17%

    I couldn't understand why Hatton was leaning on him sooo much. I really thought Hatton's corner was gonna take a page from Castillo and try to ugly it up a bit, throw off Mayweather's rhythm/timing, and try to force a bang out.

    I think the Mayweather camp's decision to get Baldomir as a training partner, really prepared him for this kind of fight. One thing's for sure, and that is Mayweather is in phenomenal condition.

    I actually hope that there is a re-match. It was at least moderately competetive up until the knock downs, and if Hatton's corner made some adjustments, like leaving a slight more space, and getting to Mayweather's right side more, more body work, could have changed the fight a bit. Also when Hatton got caught with the flash left, his face fell into the corner.

    Bye the way, what was the judges scores up until the TKO?

    No need for a rematch.

    Hatton got inside pretty easily, until the last 2 rounds, but he never threw his body shots once there. He has incredible body shots, yet Floyd was the one working the body and it showed in Rounds 9 and 10.

    The Punchstat numbers don't reflect the whole fight. The last 2 rounds were just target practice for Floyd. Up until the 9th Round, they were much closer than at the time of the stoppage.

    I though Hatton would win. I give Floyd alot of credit for putting on a good, exciting fight and still winning.

    Impressive performance from Mayweather...that "check hook" was amazing!!
