Props to him for stepping up, but what's the point if your not gonna try and win?
That's my recollection of it anyway, i actually haven't seen it since i watched it live, and that must of been what 12 years ago now?
No I agree mate he was poor. Iv only seen it once myself and that was at least 10 years ago, it's not a fight many people re watch
. But yeah it's true that he did step in as a replacement with 2 weeks notice.
But I definatly still reckon that Ricky Hatton was intimidated by Junor Witter (prime) and saw him as a risk he wasn't prepared to take.
