Hatton is the same fighter and Floyd has done NOTHING for him stylistically. He still got hit with jabs and right hands and check hooks the same as he did against Floyd jr but it didn't matter because Paulie threw 5 right hands all night and hits like a girl.
Paulie did nothing but hold all night but Hatton has a damn cheek complaining to a ref about anybody holding.
McGirt did the right thing - Paulie had no chance of winning and was starting to get busted up.
Hatton's stamina looked better than it has in recent fights. BUT it's a lot easier to come on late when your opponent is getting weaker and you are wll on top.
Paulie = limited.
Ricky = less limited.
I honestly believe that Bradley or Witter would beat Hatton now.
Am I being harsh? Yes Ricky looked better, but Malignaggi was always a safe fight for him IMO. The guy can't punch.
