Dominant Mayweather stops Hatton (Ben Dirs, 12/09/07, BBC Sport)

Floyd Mayweather put on a vintage display to stop Ricky Hatton in the 10th round and retain his WBC welterweight crown in Las Vegas.

Manchester's Hatton, 29, applied most of the pressure in the early rounds and found some success with some big lefts.

But Mayweather let his hands go in the middle rounds, with his fierce left finding its target as Hatton attacked.

And the champion floored Hatton with two big lefts in the 10th before ending it with a devastating left hook. [...]

The judges' scores at the time of the stoppage were: 88-82, 89-81, 89-81.
