Junior Witter: "Hatton Is A Coward"

17.01.07 - WBC welterweight champion Junior Witter has hit back at rival title holder Ricky Hatton on talkSPORT, the UKís only national commercial speech radio station, saying he thinks Hatton is a coward for refusing to meet him in the ring, depriving the public of the fight they desperately want to see. Talking to Alan Brazil and Graham Beecroft of the Breakfast Show, Witter said: ďHeís a coward isnít he? Realistically, if he wants to say Iím not on his radar, why has he had a press conference talking about me? ..

ďIt is the biggest fight in British boxing history at the minute. Itís not a fight that I am desperate to have in respect itís the only fight in the world for me, because it isnít. There are many other fights out there, many other champions who will give a good fight and bring me lots of money. He is just one route among many. But itís the one that the British public want to see. Theyíve wanted to see it for many years so therefore I want to see it to give the public what they want. Iím not saying he isnít a good fighter because he obviously is. But realistically, heís one of many.Ē
