Before you critisize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.

Calling him a bum is simply hate. The guy was a good boxer and had a good career. No shame in only losing to Floyd and Manny.

Hatton was a bum against Pacquiao and Mayweather. Embarrassing at seeing punches.

In his prime, 2003-2008, Hatton was above average. When he peaked in 2009 he was still good, and seen as very dangerous coming in to the Pacquiao fight. A 45-3 record is very good.

Hatton beat the lineal champ and an ATG in Tszyu. Challenged 2 #1 p4p boxers.

Not everybody can do that.

He's excellent. His style ensured that he won't have a long career.

If Hatton wasn't half as popular among fans, would he ever have had the opportunity to even face Mayweather or Pacquiao? Where do you rate Hatton as a boxer, not only since the Pacquiao KO but considering his career as a whole?

Is he a

1. Bum (C class fighter): because he lacks many core boxing skills
2. Average Boxer (B) with average boxing ability
3. Excellent Boxer (A) with above average boxing skills.
4. Elite Boxer (A+ Class), he's the cream of the crop.
Hatton was a good fighter/brawler with huge intensity and heart, by the time he fought Pacquiao and Mayweather he was past his prime his trainer had already left him because his trainer wanted Hatton to quit.

The majority thought he was "Excellent" in 2009?

LMAOO!!


Excellent BUMP....shows how bad it was/is over here...

Hatton had to cheat to get his biggest win...that's all you need to know about him.


Well...there is one more thing...I completely OWN each and every one of his "firty free fousand fans" (aka fools) that support(ed) him...

hatton is no bum, it takes a lot of hard work to lose that much weight, he was just overconfident thinking he could bully his opponent with very minimal risk
