Holy Crap, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is good
Floyd Mayweather Jr. took charge of his dream matchup with Ricky Hatton and turned what many viewed as a competitive match into a one-sided beatdown, as Pretty Boy annihilated Hatton, finishing off the Englishman in the 10th round.
There was a star-studded crowd to see the fight, including Tiger Woods (bam, it’s a golf blog).
But the night belonged to Mayweather, as he showed - like Woods - he truly dominates his sport. After his masterful counterpunching and defensive exhibition against a very tough and previously undefeated foe in Hatton, Mayweather stands head and shoulders above the rest of the boxing world.
And by beating Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton in one year, Mayweather has shown he deserves mention among the all-time greats. He’s Pernell Whitaker with more speed and a better punch.
Just an inspiring performance by Mayweather. Like him or not, he is an elite athlete. Glad Tiger had good seats to see.

Hatton should have leant on that shoulder and complained to the referee that Floyd wasn't offering a defence apart from his *rse - yeah the Ozzies would call me a whinging pom.
But all that aside, Floyd is another class, great accurate punches and movement, the left hook was a beauty.
As for our other man Joe, mmm, we can hope for a while; but if Joe wins I'll tip Justin for a Rose Slam.
