    Ricky Hatton = :bowdown:

    It was a killer body shot, but Castillo obviously was uninterested in the fight.

    Hatton came to the ring in a sombrero Maywether style. It was awesome.

    It was a beauty of a liver shot. very well placed.
    I wish JLC would have put up a better fight.

    Hatton vs Cotto would be awsome to see.

    No it wouldn't.

    I don't think Hatton is going to move up anymore unless he is fighting Floyd. He needs to overpower his opponents and he can't do that with a lot of the welterweights.

    It WOULD be awsome. I didnt say it was gonna happen, but i know many boxing fans would love to see it.

    Cotto is a brutal body puncher and i would love to see if Hatton could handle a well placed left hook himself.

    The styles make for a good fight, minus all the clinching from Hatton.

    1st. Castillo is all used up from the looks of this fight, that guy looked shell shocked from the opening bell

    2nd hatton did what ever he wanted, castillo didn't try to do a thing, he just took what hatton dished out until taking that shot to the body

    3rd i agree with above, hatton won't go up in weight class again unless there is a big pay day with floyd waiting for him, he's much better suited at the lighter weight class

    4th that fight was so 1 sided i enjoyed the Forman v Moorer show that followed more than hatton fight lol.

    5th this fight looked like a sparring session, castillo had nothing to offer, getting KTFO is one thing, but never even coming close to challenging someone and finally going down after a body shot is just sort of depressing to watch

    I'm a big fan of both fighters, but I really don't think Hatton would fair very well against Cotto.
