I just got back from watching at the pub.
Saw the end of the Ponce-DeLeon fight, Lacy dismantling Manfredo and 80% of the main event.
I say 80% because we lost satellite feed for rounds 7 and 8. A very unhappy crowd at that time.
I thought the Ref did a terrible job in the first couple of rounds, but he seemed to loosen up a bit from round 3 on.
Mayweather must have been winning easily on points.
I was surprised he had the KO punch in him, but it was a NICE shot.
Hatton running into the corner probably didn't help him.
The ref, to his credit stopped it at the right time though. If Floyd had hit Ricky when he was heading down that last time, it could have been nasty.
If there was any doubt before, I don't think there can be now, Mayweather is the best pound for pound.

The cards were apparently 89-81, 89-81, 88-82 Mayweather.

I decided to wait for the replay next week on HBO because I figured this was going to be a replay of Floyd's destruction of Arturo Gatti. It sounds like Hatton did better than that, and a couple of the ESPN.com guys gave Hatton a few more rounds, but it doesn't sound like Floyd was ever in trouble.

The question is did Hatton look good enough to get the May '08 fight with Oscar for sick money. I'd like to see Floyd-Cotto now but I think that is going to have to wait until Cotto is unavoidable.

The scores seem about right, they could have been lower with the point deduction and still have been OK. The point deduction itself seemed harsh, since Hatton didn't actually hit Mayweather, he got the top rope. I think a warning would have been more appropriate.
You could barely hear the commentary where I was, but I think Teddy said at one stage that some judges could give more to Hatton because he was always coming forward early, but they might miss some of Floyd's inside work.
Hatton-DeLaHoya would work better stylistically.
Hatton's biggest problem was Floyd's range and speed, Oscar would be a better match for him I think.
An article I read talked about Hatton going down a class though, so I don't know if they could match weights.
