Re: Thoughts about Richard Hatton's current state
When I watched that documentary before the fight I really thought that he was in a dark place and he seemed to be trying to convince himself he could still do things. I was praying he won this fight because it could go really bad for him, worse than it already has been if he lost. Then when he lost and I saw him crying on his stool and then that interview, I really wouldn't be surprised if he ended it all.
It's obviously really hard for him to come to terms with being the peoples champion and unbeaten to losing fights. He see's himself as a failure even though no one thinks he is, like he says it's what is in his head. He said before the fight that if he lost he could hang up the gloves and know that the demons are put to rest because he tried, I'm not so sure, I think his demons could get worse but I pray that isn't the case.
He needs all the help he can get right now but he's reminding me of Gazza and it seems like all the help in the world can't help him.
