Hatton Shows Some Rare Courage When In Front of Manchester fans
By Gary Jones: After a week of watching Ricky Hatton get constantly embarrassed over and over again by Floyd Mayweather Jr,, Hatton finally showed a little courage at Manchester when he let loose with a couple four letter words directed at Mayweather. It was funny, but also sad, mainly because Hatton had stood by in earlier press conferences, smiling silently and chewing his gum with a ridiculous look on his face like he was too embarrassed to respond. But once in Manchester, Hatton suddenly gets brave and finally responds now that he’s backed by thousands of his fans, many of them singing English songs, cursing and drowning out any comments made by Mayweather.
The best that Hatton could say, however, was calling Mayweather a “puff” and “a six year old,” mixed in with a couple of four letter words. It was pathetic of Hatton, and made him look less than courageous in large part because he had waited until he was in front of his home fans to finally respond to Mayweather’s constant insults. Up until then, Hatton had been repeatedly nsulted by Mayweather, who had done an excellent job of making a complete fool of Hatton.
It was truly sad, a classic case of a person who couldn’t stand up on his own two feet alone and face down an important adversary. It was only until he had all his devoted, half-crazed fans shouting approval for him that he could finally utter a few words in his defense. Before then, Hatton had trouble even looking Mayweather in the eye. So bad was it, that Mayweather had even whispered sweet nothings in Hatton’s ear, yet he had done nothing to fend him off and was completely getting punked in front of thousands of people, not to mention the millions that have seen the press conference on Youtube.
From what I’ve seen, Hatton has already lost the the mental fight, and will most assuredly lose the real fight because he’s not able to deal with Mayweather’s mind games.
