I cant watch footage of these fights without seeing it as a child sat with my dad shouting at the telly. Big fights were awesome in our house- I was aloud to stay up however late was necessary, and I was even given beer! What is amazing is that even without the veneer of nostalgia, these fights are incredible, it is a real privelidge to watch them.
In my mind, this is how I see Hatton vs Mayweather going. Working off the backfoot can only work for so long when you are being swarmed like that, and Pretty boy is selling Hattons skills very short in the run up to their fight- could cost him dear (I hope)

These fights, Kung Fu and Bruce Lee movies were "required" watching in my young childhood! I remember when I started kick boxing I used to emulate Hagglers stance swapping much to the annoyance of my Instructor. I remember saying to my rather blunt instructor after being pulled up on it, well more for keep eating jabs when I tried it, "I was watching Marvin Haggler do it on video!". He's response was, "He's black and can box, you're white and can't. Left or right, pick one!"
I think Hatton is going to end up with a very very messy face, but I'm predicting he's going to walk through everything Mayweather has throw and drop more bombs than he can handle. I see a long fight, Mayweather taking the early rounds with Hatton punishing him for every round he takes and taking a victory in the latter rounds. T'is going to be a cracking fight!
