If you'd asked me about Hatton returning a couple of years back I would have been dead against the idea but now I think it may just work if he was managed carefully. I think Hatton of old would have taken Khan apart but I can't see Hatton of today winning in his comeback fight against Khan. If he looks good after beating a couple of respectible opponents then who knows?

I think Alvarez will beat Lopez either fairly comfortably by UD or he'll have a war and win by KO.

Martinez and Chavez Jr is a toss up. If you asked me about this fight last year I would have said Sergio without a doubt in my mind but since Chavez has stepped up his opposition, he has really stepped up his game and is looking like a beast! I hope Martinez feels him out and then gets into his stride and takes him out late but it really is a pick 'em fight for me at the moment.

Strangely I think he'll struggle to catch (enough) and outpoint Malignaggni if that is his first opponent - despite having beaten him unless he was as sharp and quick as his best I think Maliggnagni is just too slick to get past unless he was as tuned in and quick as his prime. Yet Khan I think he'd KO. Khan hasn't the mental discipline to stay 'out' for 12 rounds, would get drawn in at some point and if Hatton hit him with his best shots would get done. He hasn't the power to KO Hatton unless Hatton really has lost it over the past 3 years, which I doubt, assuming he trains well.

I wonder who his trainer will be now? Gallagher? Funny as it sounds, I think, given his habits the very best bet - if Brit based - would be to go to Barry and Shane McGuigan just to tune him back in and remind him boxing wise, he really doesn't need much instruction or change after all these years, but Shane would get him in proper shape if he listens, complies and has it left. Alternatives could be Adam Booth or Rob McCracken?

Anyone else watching the heavyweight v middleweight fighting for the cruiser championship on Box Nation? Looks like man v boy...

Mind you, it's turning into a bloody good contest! in fact, was that round 3 or world war 3? Awesome stuff, if a tad 'wild'.

How that got to 12 rounds is beyond me, one of the fastest passing contests I remember - flew by - with a possibly unfair verdict, but close to call. A draw would have been fair imho

Factoid tidbit I never knew.

In 1992, American boxing and wrestling announcer Michael Buffer took out the trademark to his own slogan, Let’s Get Ready to Rumble, and sold it to companies that produce videos and adverts. By 2009 he had made more than $400m (£246m) from the rights.

i bet his brother is a bit peeved ,what,with him getting paid in penny sweets and buttons over at the ufc!!!

mind you "iiiiittt's tiiime" hasn't quite got the same ring to it has it??

martinez certainly burst that bubble didn't he?? i bet jose suliman was crying into his pint on saturday night.

rematch?? my arse,that was domination and exposure on the biggest of stages.i'd argue macklin(looked good as well) and barker would do very well against chavez.barker probably better given that macklin does like to stand and bang a bit more than darren.

lopez did not belong in the ring with someone so big,let alone canelo...good to see he's going back down in weight

An excellent weekend - if hard to fit it all in! Some good undercards, a very up and down contest between Hernandez and Ross, )bubble a bit frayed if not burst?) an interesting fight between Alvarez and Lopez - if only in seeing Alvarez looking more aggressive and determined than normal, given what a mismatch it was, Lopez ultra game though - and that awesome fight between Chavez Jr and Martinez.

Martinez looked so slick, crisp and fast and really handed out a boxing lesson but Chavez earned that Mack Truck nickname and so nearly nicked it at the end. How Martinez survived I don't know.

Despite all the criticism of Ariza he must be on to something getting Chavez down for the weigh in yet getting so much bigger and able to last by the fight. He really looked two weights above Martinez, I'd love to know what he actually weighed by fight time.

Haven't seen much of the weekend's action yet, other than watching Billy Joe Saunders defend his commonwealth middleweight title in pretty impressive fashion on Friday night. Did read a piece from Steve Bunce though, claiming Khan was trying to line up Andre Ward's trainer, Virgil Hunter. I can see the logic but, as Bunce points out, if one of the key issues with Roach is not being the undisputed no.1 at the Wildcard gym, why go to another trainer where he will be encountering the same situation...?

He's so arrogant and dumb that he'll be demanding (or claiming) number one in the camp status soon if he does land there, and blaming Hunter for his next loss. Muppet. He probably thinks Hunter can get him to fight on the inside like Ward!

I see from Ringside that the Khan Roach split is fact. Roach suggested it will be Virgil Hunter next but made some fairly pointed if wry comments about how unlikely it would be to change his tendency to get embroiled and how if he punches with he big boys it won't be good!

Saw the end of Bradley Saunders and the start of the next but need to get the kids in bed so am recording the rest and hope to get back live before the main card.

Have you noticed that the picture quality is the very very worst they've ever provided? Dismal. Makes MotorsTV look almost decent.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The quality reminds me of those YouTube clips where people film something off the TV...
