Personally I'm kicking back about to order a pizza and drink a beer while watching this Vera dude get his azz handed to him

I know I'm only talking to myself here, but in the hopes that someone else is watching and they check this thread-

I am dying laughing at how bad Vera's defense is for this uppercut Kirkland is throwing.

Lol 10-7 round. I am watching a bit of it, it is hockey night up here in Canada.

lol I have never seen a guy throw 3 punches(missing all) and then just stand there looking at him and take a huge body shot followed by a nice hook lol. Ass kicking.

Those body shots are deadly from Kirkland!

Vera is out on his feet almost.

What do you all think about the Hatton/Malignaggi fight ?

I think Merchant is drunk lol. I'll take Malinaggi. I guess. lol Also I like that boxing weighs you the night of so people know the actual difference, maybe the UFC should do that.

What's with the sumo suit on Hatton? That guy is all heart but no skill.

Yeah I wonder how much Floyd Sr. has been able to show him in such a short time...

I wish I could prop the rowdy Brit fans, that's kind of cool.

Maybe we need some MMA songs to sing!

He's just not a good boxer lol. I think Hatton will have to retire much sooner with all the punches to the melon.

LMAO his boxing coach says "Stop throwing that uppercut from the outside, that's why he's catching you with that right hand!" Maybe he should be training Liddell

I'm sure he's learning a lot from 'jab and grab' malignaggi

I'm surprised there haven't been any warnings for ducking below the belt. I've seen it a couple of times from Malignaggi

Lol Hatton should learn something from him....head movement. Malinaggi is fighting like garbage, i've never seen him throw nothing but a jab lol.

I would probably agree

I am a little bit behind you guys since I paused my DVR to go pick up pizza. It looks to me like Hatton has won almost every round except the first. So 5-1 from my end. Malignaggi can't hurt Hatton and he's letting Hatton fight his fight.

On a side note: This is bothering the hell out of me... is the guy in the sunglasses in the crowd Bono??

Finally the ducking below the belt warning!!!!

I had to look it up, I couldn't understand what they were singing:

Hatton has attracted many fans who are very vocal in their support during fights. The main chant is a modified version of the popular Christmas song "Winter Wonderland", with the lyrics changed to promote Hatton;
There's only one Ricky Hatton,
One Ricky Hatton,
Walking along,
Singing this song,
Walking in a Hatton wonderland.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricky_Hatton

Weak song.

The dude is like a fricken national hero over there. I think it's cool to see such passion for a fighter

Sweet jesus easy on the emoticons, LOL!

Anyway, good call throwing in the towel IMO. He wasn't going anywhere in that fight.

Another sad day for boxing that one of their marquee cards doesn't really produce. I enjoyed the fights, but I'm sure 90% of people out there thought it was a snoozefest
