TBT Hatton vs FMJ

I don’t recall a bigger fight in boxing since I’ve been watching that drew so many casuals to watch. Hands down to me it was the best build up in combat sports history. The 24/7 was amazing, the weigh ins were amazing and so was the fight. The brits are arguably the best fans around. My brother had a small gathering for the fight at his pad. We weren’t expecting more than 10 guys, but everyone had to start inviting others which turned to be like 35 guys. Majority I’ve never met. Big fights like this, I can only be around a select few. I can’t stand people talking during fights, especially when they don’t know shit about it. 

 

anyways, for throw back Tuesday and Ricky’s bday I’m going to post the 24/7 videos, weigh in and the fight.

Based on I don’t know why anybody in their right mind thought Ricky had a chance of winning. Complete mismatch and tailor made for Floyd.

Great thread Barry! I loved everything about this fight as well..... except for the outcome. I was a huge Hatton fan since I saw him take the title from Kostya Tszyu and I was pretty fired up for this fight. The British fans make EVERYTHING better when it comes to sports, and namely big fight nights! 

Man, that finish with the head into the turnbucke highlight of all highlights was a big blow to Ricky and his career. I think he got the big payday and turned to the pubs to drown away the humilation of that finish. He then fought his way into another big payday with Manny, then it was off to the hills to permanently transform into a rich and retired Ricky Fatton. 

Those were some good days in those divisions.

I was a Kosta fan and something about that fight bothered me. I need to watch it again, it’s been over a decade but I remember the ref really allowing Ricky to do some dirty shit in there 

I was pretty butthurt at Joe Cortez. We all knew Ricky stood little chance but I felt he was a little heavy handed and didnt let Ricky do his thing at all. Could have at least been a more entertaining fight,but man we were all hyped.

Yea same here. I think the only fight from 130-135 that would bring real excitement for Loma would be against Tank Davis. That’s if both win their next fights.

I need to watch it again, but I feel like at one point in the fight Ricky was holding on to Kosta and either smiled or winked at the ref
