    Why don't we see more big names willing to come to the UK?

    I just find it funny that's all.

    On one hand the US is boxing's home and you are largely unproven and unnoticed until you have fought and won there.

    On the other, especially in debates about MMA vs boxing, people are quick to bring up just how popular boxing is in the rest of the world compared to MMA.

    At least I don't have to listen to anymore Hatton Wonderland chanting for a while.

    it is sad because i downloaded and then watched the event, and I bet it is much better than UFC 83 will be.

    hatton certainly knows how to work a british crowd though.

    Maybe I was wrong in saying he wouldn't fill Wembely against Whitter.

    Good to see him fighting still, unlike Lennox who said he should hang em up.

    Hatton has been fun to watch and it doesn't suprise me at all he could lose 2 or 3 in a row and I'd still watch...

    omg thats insaine! He is an awesome fighter! His crowd behind him in his fight against Mayweather was probably one of the coolest things I have seen in any fighting sports. It will be interesting to see if the Canadian/GSP fans at ufc 83 will top that.
