    my heart says i agree, but my head says no.

    if he can get some early body shots then possibly, but it will all depend on if he walks onto mannys shots like he used to

    the ref should be a lot better than the mayweather fight, which is good news for hatton

    apparently they are showing the weigh in

    edit...think its at 10.30

    double edit...apparently sky sports news have announced they are showing it, with ricky expecting to weigh in at about 11.15

    Been lookin' forward to this fight...I'm a fan of both though...loved watchin' Hatton against Mayweather, and Pacquio destroyin' De La Hoya...should be a nice fight for this neutral here.

    i got money on hatton 10-12 ko and hatton points win...only cos they had the longest odds though.

    such an unpredictable fight.

    i got work tomorow so not sure whether to stay up and watch or go to sleep early and wake up at 4

    15 quid on box office.

    @ anyone who is planning on watching it online...

    go to footyonline.tv

    pay the 1.50 (or 3 quid for the month) and it will be a perfect picture with all the undercard fights :boxing:

    didnt matter about the ref dan, mayweather was always gonna smash him. an absolute cunt.. worse than arjen robben but by far still the best ( most skilled boxer ) in the world.

    hatton paqciauo is so close, im torn. ive got them both covered in various accumulators and how the day has worked i want hatton but still, it will be a great fight and an even fight.

    id get it on B/O but av got a big golf match 2moro but my advice is this get it and snort coke and stay up because!!!........

    it will either be a LONG WELL FOUGHT EVEN CONTEST or HATTON WILL KO HIM EARLY either way for a british fan it will be one of the best fights to watch in a while. proper fight.

    i know, i didnt say it would have changed the result in that fight to be fair...but kenny bayless is a lot more experienced, and should let hatton work a lot more on the inside than in the mayweather fight.

    yeah, i cant remember who the ref was in the mayweather fight but he was possibly the worst kind of ref for hatton but in my opinion..unfortunately ricky hatton has not got the quality in his gloves to match floyd mayweather. Mayweather posesses a skill that few people in the sport have managed to achieve, thats how good he is. and I'm glad he is coming back. See, if hatton wins tonite he is gonna be fightin floyd again which is good for british boxing, and lets hope floyds hands go, because they are vulnerable/weak. he will have problems with them.

    either way itll be a fuckin big fight tonite
