Matthew Hatton vs Saul Alvarez boxing on 5 March 2011
Hatton is not a world beater, because he is very limited with not much power or speed going for him. However, he looks a lot better than what I’ve seen of Alvarez. The Mexican fighter just looks god awful slow with his punches and his defense is totally missing. I don’t care if Alvarez is 19; his hand speed is as poor as some of the older fighters I’ve seen. Alvarez should be fast and not painfully slow and his defense, it’s just awful. I think Hatton can beat this guy and I have no idea why the sanctioning bodies have Alvarez ranked at #4 WBC, #5 WBO, and #7 WBA. To me, Alvarez looks like a good 2nd tier fighter, someone in the middle of the pack.
Matthew Hatton vs Saul Alvarez boxing fight
Both fighters are entering this fight at positive times in their respective careers. Hatton is fresh off of winning and defending his European Welterweight title and is eager to show the world that he is ready to take on a world-class fighter. Alvarez is continuing his destruction of the welterweight division and is gradually taking on (and defeating) more and more experienced and well-established fighters. Hatton is the more experienced professional of the two, yet he has the most to prove in this fight and will have more skeptics to silence than Alvarez, who is expected to expose Hatton to be nothing more than a mediocre fighter at the world class level.
