    Devastated

    I know it's been 2 days, but I just can't get over it. Kostya Tzu lost, and I don't know what i'll do with myself. Please help guys, Ricky Haddon isn't even in Kostya's class, how did it happen?

    I can imagine the reaction down there: Tszyu enters the ring as the great true-blue Aussie champion & leaves it as the unfortunate Russian!!

    Think it's probably purely an age thing. Hatton is 26 & must be at his peak or very near to it, Tszyu is 35 & struggling with the weight limit.

    When the great Pharlap went over to the USA to race, they made two headlines up;

    If he lost: NZ horse fails

    If he won: Australian horse world champion

    Yeah, the English media will do the same thing with Pietersen.

    Actually, from what I've seen, the media reaction over here has been overwhelmingly positive; it's not as though Kostya's about to be disowned or anything.

    He's still a champion to me, i'm just upset that he lost. I'm also upset that you're leaving SJS, don't worry.

    And Piper, this is serious

    Why, in you're expert opinion is Hatton not in his class?

    Tszyu himself seems to disagree with you...
