It'll be another 3/4/5am start but it's worth staying up for
Remember Mayweather made that young buck Canelo look like a fool. Inflicted his only defeat.
Fair johns that Mayweather fought a few people late in their career but the cunt was himself over 30 when he fought De La Hoya, Canelo, Pac Man, Cotto - he absolutely cunted Hatton.
Looking at it from another angle, whats he supposed to do if twats can't even hit him. The fact that he has no power is even more remarkable that no cunt can knock him out. You make it sound as if he runs around the ring hiding behind the ref!
Everyone sees Ali and spunks on their you tube. But see Ali v Holmes, see how shit he is, utterly crap and that is what being beat up in the process of handing out beats does to you. Holmes was apparently crying when he was kicking the shit out of him because he was his hero.
That's right... he took Hatton apart... it was ruthless and humiliating, in the end... and he may not have hid behind the ref... but what he did do, was some of the cheesiest, chicken shit, ducking, and diving under the ropes, you'll ever see... fair enough, the rules allow that, and he played those rules to the limit, frustrating Hatton, who came to fight... the record will say, Mayweather took Hatton out in 9, and it was decisive... but anyone who watched that fight, saw a very competitive, even fight, in the first few rounds, when it was a fight... until Mayweather decided he didn't like fighting... then he started the shitty, spoiling tactics, dodging low, and diving for the ropes... and it worked... Hatton was too thick, and didn't have the discipline to stick to his game... he started chasing Mayeather, who set off running about the ring, frustrating Hatton, who lost all focus trying to catch him... 3 rounds later it was all over!
That's all that matters, as far as titles and prize money goes... and that's all Mayweather cares about... which is fair enough... it's his chin, his career, and he's made a few bob from it... but not many fight fans are going to talk about Mayweathers fights... they'll talk about his record, which you can't deny... but he's not going to be remembered, or talked about like, "fuckin hell, do you remember that one?", the way they will about Gatti/Ward, Eubank/Benn, Hagler/Hearns, Ali/Foreman, or countless other fights, some between boxers with half as much talent as Mayweather... but people will remember those fights with a fuck of a lot more pride for the boxers involved... proper fights, between proper fighters...
"Mayweather??? meh... great boxer, but do you remember that scrap between Holmes and Norton??? fuckin hell... now that was a fight"...
