While I’ll let the real experts provide the proper analysis for what turned out to be a pretty exciting fight (worth the $20 cover, anyway), my own personal highlight had to be Jim Lampley comparing the atmosphere to that of the Harvard/Yale game. He’s a worldly sort of guy, that Lampley.
Watching the bout with a largely pro-Hatton contingent last night, here’s a list of who garnered the loudest ovations upon being shown in attendance :
2) Tommy Hearns
3) Tom Jones
the most boos :
1) David Beckham
2) Mark Cuban
And that’s pretty much it, no one else was razzed.
