First of all lets start with Hatton. Any1 watching his fight tonight? Should be interesting to see how good he is and especially what his durability is like. Personally think if he boxes in straight lines he will get countered and knocked out but if he uses good head movement he should be able to win. If he does win tonight we could see some good domestic fights against Kell Brook and Amir Khan and maybe a title fight against Malignaggi I know Malignaggi wants to fight him again after he lost to Hatton back in 2008.
Rumers are he will be fighting either Conelo Alvarez. Young, hungry, powerfull Mexican who could take over in the future as pound for pound best for his time. Think this would be a good move for both as Mayweather needs a warm up fight before the Pac man and this guy would get the Pay Per view buys that Money Mayweather would want. Almost all of Mexico would tune in with the ladies wanting him to win and the men wanted him to get knocked out. It this does happen Mayweather would win probably on points and look good doing so. Rumers are Timothy Bradley wants a shot at 'Money'. After his win against the Pac Man it would be an interesting fight but again I would go for a Mayweather points win by a considerable margin. The only other 2 that Mayweather would be interested in is Andre Berto and Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero who fight for the Interim WBO (or WBC?) Welterweight title tonight. Dont know a lot about these 2 but if he did end up fighting the winner I would bet on The money team to pull off the win. Also has any1 seen his twitter? The amount of money he wins on bets is shocking!
Now Kell Brook/Amir Khan
Rumers are that these 2 sparred in the ametures when they were young and both say they schooled the other. Would be a fantastic fight but Khan coming of back to back loses would have to agree with The Special One's terms which I dont think he would want to. If they were to fight it would be one of the fights of the year and I would go for a Kell knockout. This kid has got power. He knocked someone out with a jab.... a jab people! And we all know about Gary from autoglass bragging about repairing Khan's chin. Think Khan will beat Molina but I think he wants a re-match against Danny Swift Garcia. This would be very bad move for him as he would get knkocked out again and Golden Boy are close to dropping him. Especially after HBO made him re-arrange his fight twice because they didnt like the opponents they arranged.
The Heavyweight game and why the Hayemaker has gone into the jungle,
There isent much hope im afraid. Nobody can challange the Klit bro's and make a good fight atm except from Haye and Price. But with the crook Maloney taking Price up slowly he might not even fight one of the bro's for at least another year which would be bad for him IMO. Price should take care of Matt Skelton next and then take out that plum Fury. After that then he should go for one of the bro's. Prefereably Vitali if he dosent retire or fight Haye and lose. He would make a very good fight of it and has reportedly knocked down Vitali in sparring before. Which brings me on to Haye and the jungle. Its obvious why he is there. As long as getting a bit of press he wants Team K2 to offer him a contact as soon as he gets out. He thinks that they will offer him a fight which I honestly think they will as soon as he gets out for around March/April time. Maybe even late Febuary. Even tho Haye got a k0 against Chisora he didnt impress me. It was a poor performance from Chisora who didnt even train properly. Haye was 'blowing out his arse' after round 5. He is body beautiful but his stamina is shocking. But apart from this the heavyweight division is shite atm. But one positive is we have good British Heavyweights comeing through. The likes of Price, Fury in the long term he is young and needs to sort his training out, Chisora is still on 28 and the guy im most excited about is Anothony Joshua. The kid from Watford impressed at London 2012 and has been touted at the next Lenox Lewis. Weather he can live up to it is yet unclear.
Fighter of the year
It has to be Danny Garcia. Possible knockout of the year as well with either his ko against Khan or Morales. Both were stunning. People say the Khan ko was a lucky punch. Ha, please he's knocked people out with his left hook his whole life. The fact that Khan spun around showed you how hard he was hit. The same thing happened to Morales. I wish more people would give this lad credit. People have excuses every time they get beat by him.
Lastly RIP Manny Steward!
