Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Ricky Hatton?

There has been talk that both fighters' camp are negotiating a fight between the two. Now that's what I'm talking about! Finally, two young, undefeated, unproven fighters facing off against each other! I would definitley watch this fight since I'm sure one of them will lose and a lot of us think it's Hatton. I always have a very big interest when it comes to watching an undefeated fighter lose for the first time, just to see how he would take it. Ricky Hatton is a smaller fighter than Floyd Mayweather and for Ricky, that is a huge disadvantage since Mayweather is used to fighting opponents naturally bigger than him. Some of us would think that Hatton might get slaughtered here. However, I think it would be an interesting fight since both of them are young and hungry fighters and they're both at their prime. There's only one thing that I think is strange though: Oscar De La Hoya expressed an interest to fight Hatton and that would mean more money for Hatton than Mayweather whose fights aren't that exciting to watch, instead he opted to fight Mayweather instead. I have no complains though, because Hatton looks like he wants to prove himself by beating the guy that everybody considers as the best fighter in the world, pound for pound. Ricky Hatton is going to be the underdog in this fight and it would be good if he could pull off an upset. I have been wanting to see Mayweather lose a fight for a very long time and I have been wondering who that guy will be. I almost thought it was Oscar De La Hoya, but it turned out to be just another one of Mayweather's fight where he was running away against his opponent. If he keeps running away against a smaller fighter in the form of Ricky Hatton, then I'm going to turn off the TV right away. All of us want to see a new aggressive Mayweather, not the same thing over and over again and now that Hatton is a smaller fighter than him, would he still do a hit and run? W'ell see when the fight really happens on December...

The superfight is official and will be promoted by none other than Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and (what's this?) Floyd Mayweather's Mayweather Promotions! Talk about irony here... The fight is on December 8 and is dubbed as "Undefeated". A lot of people are thinking that Hatton's 0 is gonna go, but it will be an interesting match-up. The fight venue is at MGM Grand in Vegas.
