FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR vs. RICKY HATTON (HBO) 

Description : Here we have an original HBO Boxing PPV closed circuit fight poster used to promote the fight at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, 8th December 2007.

Another great Las Vegas blastout that I was so happy to be in attendance at. This had to be one of my best 5 day 25/7 blastout's! more than 35,000 flew in from all over the globe to see Ricky go at it with Floyd. Shame about the result but the party atmosphere was heroic.

Hatton was able to compete with Mayweather in the early rounds. In the 1st round Hatton caught Mayweather with a left jab which knocked Mayweather off balance. His constant pressure appeared to make Mayweather uncomfortable at first, but soon gave way. In the third round, Mayweather landed a right that cut Hatton above the right eye. In round six, referee Joe Cortez took a bullshit point away from Hatton after he threw punches at the back of Mayweathers' who had ducked under the top rope. Hatton became angry at the referee's decision to deduct a point from him and turned his back on him in frustration & showed Mayweather his arse, as if to say KISS THIS!. Hatton would later claim that he had become angry by the referee and that had caused him to lose his calm and contributed to his downfall.

Hatton was able to hold his own, until round six, after Hatton got worn down from chasing Mayweather around the ring. Mayweather sensed the exhaustion of Hatton, and pursued Hatton's punches with stiff, damaging counter-punches. Mayweather was clearly in control before rocking Hatton in the 10th round. He knocked him down with a left hook, and Hatton was badly hurt. He didn't look as though he knew where he was when he got up, but referee Joe Cortez let the fight continue. Mayweather wasted no time jumping on him again, landing a flurry of punches, including another left hook that sent Hatton staggering backward and down again. Cortez called off the fight at 1:35 without a count at the same time the white towel was thrown from Hatton's corner.
