Mayweather vs. Hatton -- "Undefeated" Prediction
The central difference is that one of the men, Floyd Mayweather, is a mega-talent in almost every facet of the game, while his opponent, Ricky Hatton, is a clear notch below him on the ability scale. Mayweather has a proven chin, radar-like defense, and adequate power as a welterweight. Hatton is a killer at 140 but at 147 his vaunted body punching is simply above-average.
Mayweather will likely outspeed, out-maneuver, and generally out-perform Hatton in every department. No one will walk-over Hatton and he will pressure Mayweather throughout. He is willing to go all out with complete abandon and that gives him a slight chance. Very slight. Expect Mayweather to contently dominate round after round as Hatton is frustrated in his attempted bull rushes.
A truly great fighter beats a truly good fighter.
Mayweather by 12-round decision.
