    It's gonna happen :)

    Very exciting for boxing. You can't understand how hard Ricky Hatton is going to work for this fight. He learned his lesson getting too out of shape in-between fights and showed it in his last. I might have a look at the prices when this comes round because I think Mayweather will be the understandable favourite and Hatton will stop him. Thoughts?

    BTW - This has to be Madison Square Garden or somewhere of similar stature surely?

    wow... wow... WOW!!!

    My money is on Mayweather... even though I wasn't very impressed with his last fight. I'm shocked this is actually going to happen!!! :eek:

    Surely this will be a better fight than the Mayweather VS De La Hoya fight was.
    After all the trash that Mayweather talked in the build up to the De La Hoya fight it makes wonder what sort of hyperbole we'll be hearing when this deal is finally inked! :D

    Maybe Mayweather rocks up in a Manchester City football jersey for the weigh-in and press conference!!:D

    I like Hatton but I'm putting my money on Mayweather. I just see Mayweather's skill being to dominate. From the clips I saw his fight with De la Hoya was boring but I've seen him fight enough to see his defence smothering and overwhelming. I still hope Hatton wins but that's only cuz Mayweather just talks to much smack.

    Used to be a fan of Mayweather but got real irate hearing him dis MMA and then follow that up with a really boring fight with De la Hoya.

    im up for hatton but believe mayweather will win, if hatton can pull it off he will become a megastar-this is the biggest fight of his life..

    Yes this is very very exciting. I agree with the school of thought that says Mayweather's skills will dominate. But I don't see him walking away with it, I see him winning a well fought decision. BUT Hatton did stop Castillo with a hard body shot which was impressive. It took Mayweather two tough decisions to beat Castillo. However that means little in boxing where styles make fights. Anyone remember Hearns dominating Duran and than being beaten badly by Iran Barkely. Only to have Duran return to beat Barkely. Anything can happen. That's what makes boxing so exciting.

    I've got my money on Floyd but I've been wrong before. Well just have to wait and see. Oh yeah did I mention that this is very exciting. :D

    Slip The Jab says.. "Maybe Mayweather rocks up in a Manchester City football jersey for the weigh-in and press conference!!"

    That would be bad! but What woud be real bad is if Mayweather went to the weigh in with a Manchester United shirt on!.

    My heart goes with Hatton but head says Mayweather. :)

    PBF will not be able to go toe to toe, and he will hit-and-run all night long.

    Why would he want to? that would be like leonard v duran 1, he'll fight to his strenghts as will hatton-whoever uses there abilities best will win-mayweather for me.

    Yeah I don't think that Hatton's gonna take it. He a brawler... a wrestler... and you can't brawl with what you can't catch. And lets face it... Mayweather will show up on his bicycle... can Hatton catch that? I doubt it.

    Mayweather is defensively way too sound. Hatton isn't going to win it just by putting pressure on Mayweather. No chance. I saw a prime J. Castillo put tons of pressure on Mayweather in their second go 'round and got handed his ass for it. Can Hatton do better? I doubt it.

    My money is on Mayweather.

    *runs off to find a booky :D

    No doubt Floyd can't afford to catch as body shot like Pep took! OUCH!!!

    Yeah he wades right into it don't he. Not a shrinking violet by any stretch.
    I hope he backs it up... or his ribs are going to be the first to know he couldn't.:D

    I hope Ricky wins. Mayweather certainly is the biggest fight of Ricky's career but Oscar fought Mayweather to nearly a draw, it was a very close fight. Most of us on this forum agreed it was pretty darn close. Ricky is a much faster Oscar with the power to go along with it. He must go to the body. Everyone knows Mayweather's 'D' is phenomenal. The body moves less than the head. The old saying 'kill the body and the head will die' should be Ricky's strategy from the start. He can do it.
