Well I disagree with you and put it to you Ricky Hatton is a better fighter than the two current best 140 guys. Unlike a lot of fighters, be it a Joe Calzaghe or Mayweather himself, Hatton always wanted to fight the best out there and never hid from a challenge. Commendable in my view.

I would take a prime Hatton over Khan by stoppage cause of his pressure and Amir's weak chin. BUT Bradley would box circles around Hatton all day and any day IMO.

I don't mind you disagreeing with me, but it must be said...you're looking at it all in the most favorable light...Hatton didn't step up until almost his 40th fight...and that was with EVERYTHING on his terms...he had a FULL stacked deck against old Tszyu....

I'm sure it has to occur to you he was ready to cash out after building an undefeated record of merde...he is ALLLL about the money...like Oscar was, like Floyd and Pacquiao are...


If a fighter wants to pull the wool over the people's eyes and make a shit ton of dough before he retires, all he has to do is take The Hatton Route...his career and financial security was orchestrated and set up to perfection...

I'm with that....Bradley is a TRUE P4P boxer....he's definitely more skilled and smarter than Hatton...a guaranteed win anywhere but The M.E.N.....

lol...I don't know about that...Hatton would definitely get the preferred treatment in England in that situation....what's funny is the term "Prime Hatton" though...I think he was prime for one fight...the KT win sent him downhill...lol

even if you fight tomato cans going 43-0 before you lose has to count for something...even if hatton was a b level fighter at some point in those 43 victories wouldn't he have lost? I don't know how many people in this forum have played some kind of sport and have gone undefeated, but that's pretty hard to do even if you compete against weak opponents..ex: a lot of people don't consider Ortiz an A level fighter and he exposed berto real bad, and a lot of people don't consider berto a b level fighter so two C+/ B- fighters fought for the WBC welterweight belt and the undefeated champ got exposed badly...but i think Hatton was a good fighter..it's hard to say if he'll get into the hall of fame....but he was fighting his ass off against floyd he just didn't have enough technical skills to win...what people don't realize is floyd has been around boxing/ competing in boxing i would estimate at least 28 years....he's like a grand master...you can't really fault a guy for losing to someone like that

You know it was me who called him that, SENTRAL...lol

It's quite simple...Hatton was NOT "very good"...I would say at his best he was "good"...which means he was NEVER an A Level fighter...

He didn't deserve to be in the ring with Mayweather or Pacquiao, and both those guys knew that...that's why they chose him....he was nothing but a fat, foreign cherry to them...so saying he ONLY lost to the very best holds no weight....barring those two big names, his resume pre and post Tszyu can be used to wipe an ass...


In the end, Ricky Hatton proved himself to be as unprofessional as he was overrated and underskilled...


LMAO

On a side note, GEESH SENTRAL, you're KILLING ME with the big pics of Amanda Helen Tam in your sig. Maybe you can crop some of these smaller ones and use them instead:

The Fonz, why do you call Hatton trash?  I think you're being very disrespectful to a man who was a very good fighter.  He wasn't ATG or anything near to it but he was a very good fighter and he had a very good career.

Somebody else called him a weak minded fatso but that isn't true either.  I don't need to see a stack of photo's depicting the out of shape Hatton because that has no baring on how he looked when he turned up for a fight.  He was always in tremendous shape and being made a mockery of is extremely harsh and merely shows a personal dislike towards him rather than anything rational. 

Still, I believe he was a very good fighter and as Fitz said, he can be proud of having a very good career.  There are many fighters out there both past and present who achieved less than Hatton despite being more talented.  That in itself is a testament to his dedication and achievements.



Maybe trash wasn't the right phrase? What I meant to say is that Hatton was a pathetic excuse for fighter whose best wins where an over the hill Tzyu and an over the hill and unmotivated Castillo. He did absolutely nothing to deserve that shot against Mayweather so I'm happy that it ruined that no talent having peice of cow dung.
