All thanks to FW. I am sure Hatton would have faced anyone but FW was more concerned about protecting his unbeaten status. Good job he gave FW the ultimatum and got himself a crack at Tszyu otherwise he would still be defending the WBU title on FW shows (or maybe FW would have got him the WBO belt by now).
He has done the same with Calzaghe. For years JC was festering away fighting FW handpicked opponents. He steps up to fight Lacy and shows why he will go down as ATG. He looks a better more motivated fighter against the likes of Lacy and Kessler.
I think Khan will get a title later this year or early next year then be happy making a couple of defences a year for 5/6 years. Nice easy money for the lad to retire on.
