I picked DLH to win but Mayweather got it on pionts. Oscar took most of the first half but Mayweather strated to rally late on and take control. There are some big match-ups for Floyd including a rematch with De La Hoya, a tussle with Shane Mosley and possibly even a showdown with our own Ricky Hatton.
IF and a very big IF this fight does happen Hatton would have to up at least one weight possibly two and i dont think his punch carries well at the higher weights, even his trainer Billy Graham said he should stay at light-welter.
I don't think Hatton is quite up there with DLH & Mayweather so Sandy is right about his chances with both of them. I love Hatton too - he's one of the nicest fellas in boxing but I feel he may even struggle next month with Jose Luis Castillo in Las Vegas.
Taz, I agree on the age thing with DLH - his body just can't do the things it could back in 1996 - imagine what he'd have done with FM back then?
There's a good fight next weekend - Kevin Anderson V Eamonn Magee - Sky Sports. Scot Anderson is a throwback fighter, and now he's training with Bob Shannon in Manchester - a trainer who's renowned for getting his lads fit. He'll need to be against Belfast hardman Magee - this guy's been done over by the IRA with baseball bats and was told by doctors he'd never fight again (he was lucky he walked again - they bashed his legs to bits) but he came back to resume his career.
Who needs these big fights in Vegas when we've got some very watchable guys over here who'll give 110% everytime they step through the ropes!
