Tark, Hatton is a washed up fighter period end of story, he is 34 and he was NEVER going to become anything more than the brawling pressure fighter he was in his prime… NOW he cannot take a punch and he is slower and less capable.. He could have Jesus in his corner and he is still not capable of being effective over the course of a bout against a World Class WW fighter… Give it a rest… Hattons done

I don’t have any dreams of Hatton fighting at world level… He fought at a decent level in this fight for a few rounds.. I don’t like his bouncing and that crap came back in this fight.. He wasn’t relaxed.. He wasn’t settled.. He wasn’t smooth.. He did far from his showing vs Malignaggi where he was perfectly composed and never threw wild punches all night.. I just put that all on his corner.. I see a lot of horse-pucky corners but usually not working for fighters of Hatton’s caliber … Senchenko’s corner did a fabulous job, and if you don’t think trainers and chief seconds can make a difference you’re nuts.

Tark, your dreams of Hatton fighting at world level for the duration exist only in your mind…Ricky got handled and what happened was meant to be his fate… Like I said his opponent took him out in what proved to be relatively humane fashion and that should be the official end of Hatton, who looks like an old man after all the self abuse.. Beating Paulie who he could safely walk thru belied the fact that he’s a sitting duck for guys with sound skills, as his toughness waned he began getting buzzed,drilled and dropped… It’s over!

You’re a loser Box…. And Senchencko didn’t do Hatton any favors Sred..He did hmself a favor by not panicking when he lost the early rounds. Just the fact that he never wavered for a second upset Hatton tremendously. He’s used to guys crumbling mentally. Ricky’s corner needed to calm Hatton down and settle him down. Tell him he’s scoring with the jab and to keep using feints and patience, relax and not look for the KO. They did a really terrible job. Floyd Mayweather Sr did a great job for Ricky in the Malignaggi fight. He got Ricky right back on track as soon as he veered off course in the 1st round..

Nobody could have helped Ricky in the Pacquiao fight because as soon as he got hit really hard his new boxing skills flew out the window and he was the old Hatton. This kid Senchencko is not a puncher and not a real good boxer. It was a winnable fight.

TARK YOU might have liked this Fight for Hatton but I liked if for Senchenko on the DAY that the Fight was announced. Learn how to like the Fight for the WINNER instead of the LOSER.

Hatton was a fun guy and he always came to fight but Senchencko did him a favor and stopped him without leaving him on his back seperated from his senses.. Hatton looked much like his old self absent the ability to handle a punch… His face was bady bruised and he was beginnig to fade as the night wore on… Sugar Ray Leonard had to have Camacho (RIP) make the point and now Hatton let Senchenko do it… There is NOT a feel good story to be had, Ricky should NOT look for positives in his performance he should accept the LONG end of his athletic prime and accept that he beat a fated Tszyu and guys will destroy the faded version of him…Move on Ricky…

His lack of fixing the weaknesses others exploited did him in, he is still easy to hit while lunging in and his head doesnt move

All the stories have been told of kings and days of old, but there’s no England now…

AD knows absolutely NOTHING about boxing. I smell a Brittard.

SREDMOND has been an internet troll for years, no hope for him.

If Hatton loses it will be because he has NOT been fighting at the World level for years, the last time he was seen in the ring he was made to look like an inept club fighter by a streaking Pacquiao who destroyed him, he has been a bloated coke sniffing, beer swilling shell of an athlete for years… Weight class comes a distant 5th to all the factors working against Hatton

I like this fight for Hatton…. To me, you don’t do tune-up fights… If you’e out 3 years, 4 years, 5 years you jump right back on the train where you leapt off, like Vitali did with Sam Peter and Leonard did with Marvin Hagler… The reason is you’re expected to beat tune-up fighters with ease. Nobody heard of them so there’s no electricity in the air and there’s no excitement. You might make a mistake and get caught like Leonard did with Howard. Or get your ass kicked like Robinson did in his 2nd straight tune-up with Ralph Jones. If you fight a champion you’re going to be ready. You’re going to be sharp. The training expenses are there to hire superior sparring partners and have the best camp. Best of all you’re expected to be rusty and your opponent half expects an easy fight, and the way Hagler fought the first 4 rounds you know he did with Leonard.

He wasn’t anywhere near 200lbs coming into training camp,he’s a trainer now and in the gym Mon-Fri also ticking over training himself,he was alot fitter coming into this camp than previous ones at the peak of his career.

Hatton has been dropping this weight for a long time. WIth his style, he`s probably better having had the time off than he would be if he`d been in the ring taking shots. Really point me to the fight where Ricky has run out of steam for any other reason than he is being too aggressive and is being outclassed – I don`t think it has happened – he’s never had stamina issues, in fact it is one of his strengths that he can fight 100 miles per hour all fight. His problems are that he has never been comfortable at WW – Collazo had him in trouble in round 12, and he only won the fight due to a flash knockdown in round 1, and as Roach pointed out, Hatton sets his punches – you can see that lead left hook coming, and he needs to set his feet to throw the hook to the body, both things a good enough fighter can take advantage of – Pac did it by coming in faster under the hook, and Mayweather caught bodyshots on his elbow and responded with inside uppercuts – as well as checkhooking Hatton into the ringpost. Still, there is only one Ricky Hatton, and I love the guy so hope he can bulldog Senchenko, and get those bodyshots going. I think Senchenko is going to freeze.

Congratulations to Ricky Hatton, on making weight. He looked much better for this weigh in than was the case for the Pacquiao fight. Hopefully he’ll make a good showing, but really Hatton will not fancy fighting at 147. Look at the reach difference between him and Senchenko. He may get by Senchenko, but once he meets someone with reach and pop, he’ll get busted up. Still I wish him luck though.

If Hatton lost 70lbs during training camp, then his hopes of winning diminish. I think that has always been his biggest problem. Much like Juan Manuel Lopez, he gains too much weight between training camps.

I will say this, though. If Hatton can win tonight and makes the rematch with Malinaggi then I can respect him coming back in order to go out on his terms with a couple of wins and a belt. Always did love watching him fight.

Whether Hatton wins or loses tonight hardly matters. He couldn’t hang with the elite at 147 3 years ago and it’s unlikely he could do so today. I’m more interested in finally getting a look at Quigg tonight. Heard good things about him and want to know if he’s the truth.

If Hatton loses to Senchenko tonight, you’ll have to accept his excuse for the loss.

If Hatton loses to Senchenko tonight you have to look at his weight loss as a huge factor
