I touched on this last week but the reason I love the current edition of HBO’s 24/7 so much is because the differences between Ricky Hatton and Floyd Mayweather are so vast its almost comical. Sure, Oscar De La Hoya is no Pretty Boy Floyd but there’s no denying that they share similar personality traits. I would be hard-pressed to find one thing in common between Hatton and Mayweather.
Some have said the whole “I love to drink me Guinness at me Pub” routine seems a little manufactured and that’s certainly a valid point but once you juxtapose it against the brash antics of one Floyd Mayweather it’s television gold.
As for the actual fight, come 12/8 the Manchester native will certainly walk to the ring an overwhelming underdog but, regardless, the Hitman seems more focused than ever.
I’m not just saying that, too. He really does. Take a listen for yourself.
