The only thing that has me concerned is the possible ring rust with Floyd. Manny is hot right now, and I would hate to see him catch Floyd when he's not at his best.
Hey, I'm not hot-shot!


I'm bandwagon!!!

I think it's funny that people say that crap every time we see an early KO in a boxing match, but when that happens in MMA they call it "exciting".

Okay, well I just watched the fight and that is hardly a fair way to look at it. Hatton looked like complete crap against Manny. He moved slow as hell and had no footwork or head movement. When he fought Floyd he was actually moving well in the beginning. Obviously training with Mayweather Sr. did not garner the pay-off he expected it would. Or he just didn't listen, which seems likely considering Floyd Sr was yelling at Ricky that he should have listened to him from day 1 in between rounds. Who the hell knows. Regardless, that was not the same Ricky Hatton who fought Floyd Jr, and it's no surprise that Manny knocked him out like that.

We don't know how Floyd is going to look after all the time off, and obviously Manny is on fire right now, but Floyd is the king of counter punchers and he won't play Pac-Man's game like Hatton did. I think it's fair to say that right now Manny would appear to have the edge, but Floyd has been there before and every time the non-believers have eaten crow. So, while I will definitely be pulling for Mayweather, I will reserve my judgment on the exact outcome until after I see PBF fight Marquez, and until closer to the actual fight.
