Hatton is going to bleed a lot, look stupid slow .. and then lose.
He'll look like he's moving in slow motion. This one won't be close, it's a simple payday for Mayweather.
It'll be stopped in the middle rounds when Hatton can't see through the blood in his eyes.

He's 'pound for pound' the best in the world right now. This is a tune-up fight/easy money for Mayweather.
They send one of these hard-headed bleeders over here every decade or so .. and he always goes home in stiches.
Way too slow. He'll be a punching bag.
On the other hand .. they DO fix fights all the time and this would be a good spot for the 'bigs' to cash in.
Lucky punch KO, rematch, big $$$
Originally posted by CabaHe will be fighting at his current weight in the higher weight div, if that makes sense.
Hatton was very poor last time he went up a weight and that was against a very average Luis Collazo. He's proved me wrong in the past but I think Mayweather is a step to far for him.
Originally posted by rhbI quite agree, Hatton won't be bulking up just because he's going up a division. The problem is he's fighting someone who is much more at home at welterweight, bigger, more powerful etc. If the fight goes past 7/8 rounds this could really start to tell. If you look at the Collazo fight Hatton had nothing left in the last few rounds and was lucky not to get knocked out.

He (and his team) know that carrying extra weight will hinder him so decided not to bother bulking up, yet they're still confident he'll take Mayweather despite this difference.
Originally posted by mcreynoldsYeah, Hatton's well known for scoffing lots of pies when not in training.
Hatton's problem moving up classes wasnt the weight in my opinion, last I heard his "walking around weight" is something like 180. I think it has more to do with him being only 5'6, and as he moves up he will be fighting taller, rangier guys like Collazzo. Mayweather is pretty small for a welter, so I dont think he will have a size advantage, but he does have a longer reach.
