What do you reckon Mayweather has done with Hatton?
I was just wondering what you all think Mayweather will work on with Hatton.
Personally I think he'll take him back to basics, Hatton pre-Kostya never started to walk into punches. I suppose he thought he didn't need to move his head to win fights and just rough himself in there.
I want to see the old Hatton, good head movement, footwork and boxing. He was exciting to watch in his earlier days.

I think he's worked on Hatton's boxing skills, improved his defense on the outside and also is probably trying to make him use his jab a bit more, hard to say until we actually see him in the ring against Malignaggi though.

Sent him to a tanning salon to start with and then most likely worked
on his defense...

Aslong as we don't see Hatton shoulder leaning, I'm happy .
I liked the old Hatton, with the explosive style, who would jump right at you, with his deadly bodywork and quick feet. THAT Hatton would not have won a UD over Lazcano, he would have destroyed him.

His physical decline has likely gone too far at this point. The new trainer may bolster him mentally (which he also desperately needs) but I'm not sure it will be enough.

There is a lot of truth here, Hatton of late has gotten into a rut of staying too close, clinching and brawling.
Hope Mayweather will accentuate his strengths and return him to the quick footed in and out explosive Hatton of old.

i agree, Hatton would of knocked out Lazcano by like the 5th round atleast. I say Hatton beats Malignaggi hopefully by KO

You will see a new Hatton in the Paulie fight.
He will have speed of light reflexes.
Quick elusive movement and footwork.
Shoulder roll defense.
Very accurate lead right hand.
Overall great boxing skills and intelligence.
