In my last blog, which I posted all of about 1 hour ago, I mentioned among my scattershots that the Ricky Hatton/Jose Luis Castillo fight looked to be a big event. Well, it was, for Ricky Hatton. I know many people who saw it will say Castillo looked like a shot fighter, and he did. After 2 wars with Diego Corrales and Floyd Mayweather, Castillo has fought his best days.
But this was outright destruction. Even if Hatton hadn't landed a perfect body shot that put Castillo down, his shots to the head would have added up eventually. This leaves an interesting possibility that Hatton will challenge Floyd Mayweather in the near future. I've already harped on Mayweather's penchant for ducking other fighters, but it would be sad for the sport if it doesn't happen. As much as I am a fan of Mayweather (I admit it) I think Hatton would clean his clock in 8 rounds.
