Hatton Rips Saul Alvarez: Canelo's Record is Overhyped
By Jhonny Gonzalez
European welterweight champion Matthew Hatton is planning to make it war on Saturday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Hatton has vowed to bring the battle to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the product of Guadalajara, Mexico. He doesn't predict a win by knockout. Hatton is looking to outbox the unbeaten Alvarez.
Alvarez said Hatton is a "no-hoper" with no chance of victory, but the British boxer took a few swipes at Alvarez's last few opponents like Carlos Baldomir and Lovemore Ndou, and he also took a dig at Alvarez's pro record.
"It will be a great fight. He does not like to be pressured, and he doesn't know what to do when he is forced to fight in reverse. I'm not old and I'm not finished like his last opponent. I'm young, fast, and I can control the ring. I think the fight will go the distance and hence my desire and my hunger will triumph," Hatton told Sal Rodriguez.
"I have fought with more experienced people than him. Although he is bigger than me, we have to analyze his fights, and he hasn't fought anybody good. I'm not saying it isn't a dangerous fight for me but it's dangerous for him too. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain."
this is a BUM fight. neither guy is deserving of a title belt. Alvarez the albino mex with obviously a white father and hatton the pasty faced pale brittie are basically bums.Comment by Dirk Diggler UK on 03-04-2011

So we have a man with an overrated record fighting a man with an overrated name. All this proves to me is that I'm a real fan because I'm excited for this fight. I hope we see something special.Comment by BesWorldChamp on 03-03-2011
