Pretty Boy KO's Hatton

Floyd Mayweather Jr. knocked Ricky Hatton the fuck out in the 10th round Saturday night in Vegas. You would have thought it was in England because of all the fans who attended the fight on Hattons behalf. It sounded like a fucking soccer match with all the chants and songs going on during the fight.

Hatton came out early as the aggressor, putting constant pressure on Mayweather. It was effective at 1st making May uncomfortable. Mayweather was limited to one punch at a time followed by a hold/grab for the 1st 3-4 rounds.

All the clean shots were landed by Mayweather and he even cut Hatton above the left eye in the 3rd with no further damage. A point was taken away from Hatton by referee Jose Cortez for hitting Mayweather in the back of the head. It was a bullshit call and it seemed as if Cortez was blind to the holding Mayweather was doing and kept warning Hatton.

Either way in the end rounds Hatton looked a little winded and became less and less aggressive and Mayweather took advantage by landing more combinations. Then in the 10th Hatton was caught with a left hook to the jaw that knocked him silly. After an eight count, Hatton got up only to be knocked back down seconds later with Cortez stopping the fight as well as Hatton's corner throwing in the towel. Mayweather is now 39-0 (29 KOs). Hatton suffered his 1st loss and fell to 43-1 (31 KOs).

Boxing sucks now, but this was a decent fight. Way better than the Mayweather/De La Hoya fight, I can tell you that much.
