Ricky Hatton

Posted 1900/01/01 12:00 AM by jonnydog

We all seen Hatton blow up from his fighting weight of 10 stone to almost if not 13+ stone since winning the IBF light Welter title June this year.


Well he was being interviewed last night prior to his fight with Carlos Maussaand to unify the IBF/WBA light welter belts; the guy has shifted the weight and is looking well for it no signs of weakness etc.


Time will only tell if this ballooning in weight then losing it in time for fight night (even if controlled) will have a serious effect on such a hot prospect from Manchester, England

Big weight changes didn't seem to affect Archie Moore. Perhaps he will be the same. book

Hatton's been yo-yo dieting for years, it's never hampered him in the past, why should it hamper him now? book

Heart said Hatton, My head said PBF,

if he takes the same kind of loss from manny that he took from floyd, won't it be terrible for his career? or, is he too popular? book

Fair do's. He got completely outclassed by pac-man and he probably should retire, but it would be nice if he at least went out with a win. "There's only one RICKY HATTON". book
