Go for Kell Brook … i think Khan will be too fast this older version of Hatton.

Brooke definitely wants this he said so on sky sports, it would net him a few million bucks so its no wonder really.

Hatton vs El Chino Maidana, man thats a fight I thought i’d never see but if Ricky has anything left it would be a great fight.

I love reading Colins’s articles ; they
are such utter crap ! What’ll he say when Senchenko blows by Hatton ?
Hatton was overtrained ?

Hatton would do much better against Amir Khan. Hattons pressure would make Khan slug it out with him which is a sure way to get Khan knocked out. Brook would be too skillful and if he came into the ring fit, he would make quick work of Hatton.

Foreman got very lucky… But the more you try the luckier you get.

Every comback takes a different path.. Hatton doesn’t have to do it like anyone else. He can take his time. He has a massive advantage because he’s a very popular guy.. He can pick and choose his opponents very carefully like George Foreman did when he came back at 38 …. Foreman knew that it’s not so much who can beat you—but who you fight and when you fight them.. George lost 2 title fights to Holyfield and Morrison at ages 42 and 43—but when Moorer upset Holyfield Foreman moved Heaven and Earth to get the first shot at Moorer… Foreman saw something and knew Moorer was the right fight for him.

Hatton sucks.

Ricky’s style isn’t made for successful second chances. He’ll end up taking a beating. :-(

Hatton’s head will experience punch fatigue pretty early on in this comeback. Punch fatigue = where the nervous system closes down to reduce the experience of trauma. If Ricky does get through a few opponents, he’s taken way too much punishment in the past to step into the A game now. Brain specialist doctors should do an intervention on Ricky.

Khan would cut Hatton to ribbons, Brook I feel would also stop him. He may get through his comeback fight but as soon as the calibre of fighter in front of him is of a high class that will be the end of this come back. Hatton does not take a shot well and has only one game, but it well make for some exciting nights.

Brook, Khan’s speed would give Ricky nightmares, Kell doesn’t have alot of experience and has struggled against lesser opponents.

This is going to end badly fro Ricky Hatton. He should have never made a come back.

Hey, thats my bike!!

It won’t matter who he can do better against when Senchenko spanks his ring rusty butt.

I would imagine Hatton would be more competitive with Kell. In his prime I think he would have beat both. Would hate to see Khan get Ricky Hattons name on his resume.
Apparently Hatton “overtrained” for the pacman fight….. I would imagine he is overtraining for the Senchenko fight?

I think khan

Ricky should have stayed retired. What a weirdo.

Khan would starch Hatton, been out of the game too long and Khan too fast and strong.

Thanks Herron… I don’t see it as a matter of Hatton getting back to form. That’s not a lofty goal. It’s a matter of tuning up really well in a few fights and then building on that base. Take the Hatton of the Malignaggi fight and build diligently on those skills after each fight until he retires for good. Before the Ortiz fight Mayweather said, “I think I can still get better.” …. If you don’t think like that you actually go backwards. When George Foreman was 38 he said, “People think I’m crazy, but I’m actually going to learn how to pace myself and box.”

Dara has the beat (lol at matching of hatton up with randall bailey) or anyone else that has bricks for hands berto lol ….

I’m a Yank and I definitely think Hatton should build himself up in the UK and not bother flying across the pond for his first few fights back. First because he’d be screwing up his own training schedule, secondly because he is the draw, and thirdly because his fans deserve it. I live in NYC and it’s annoying that no sooner did Cotto get to the big time that they made his biggest fights in Vegas. I’ve seen all his fights in NYC and would have loved to see the others here as well. These promotional deals with Vegas don’t really favor fans.

Hatton needs to work out that rust; right now any active fighter has an advantage over him. This author is out of his mind, Hatton needs to prove himself against Marcos Maidana, Andre Berto, Thomas Dulorme, Mike Jones, Randall Bailey, Devon Alexander, Selcuk Aydin or Robert Guerrero to get a fight with Khan?!? My God Berto would smash Khan to bits! Most of those other guys are tough matchups for any fighter around the weight too. I mean some of these are full sized Welterweights and Khan is getting KO’d by Lightweights and Jr. Welterweights.

boob man

This guy is a tool! First fight back in how many years and go in straight against marcos maidana?? Get real a few tune up fights first then go for the big boys. Hatton can still give us some good fights win or lose it doesnt matter, hes a class act!

hes coming back against a former world champion,reguardless of calibre or era if ranked by wba your not a bad fighter might not be great but not bad either.nice two warm up fights then a fight against khan.then against a top 5 contender.then face mayweather or pacquio.could be interesting.

getalife

It sounds to me that in the second paragraph he’s giving his verdict on what he thinks would happen between Brook and Kahn, not himself……..

Joseph Herron

Right on the money once again, Tark…the verdict’s still out on whether or not Ricky will ever get back to form.

Honestly, I’ll have to see it to believe it.

Hatton won’t ready for Brook or Khan whatever the outcome.. He won’t be for a while. Hatton can’t step right back in like Vitali or Floyd and look like he’s never been away. He’s not a “natural” … Hatton needs several fights of this caliber to ramp up his defensive skills and outside boxing skills which Floyd Sr started to teach him. He loves boxing and wants to master it, but it’s going to take time. It’s not a matter of ring rust. It’s the development and refinement of skills he’s never mastered but has the speed, power, and talent to do so. I think he knows this.

He would easily do better against Kell Brook. KB has absolutely no inside game!!

Posted October 6, 2012 2:51 pm 


Jason

I suspect neither … As much I love Ricky … I think he’s had his time

Hatton can’t decide who he’d do better against – Khan or Kell Brook
