Hatton should change his last name to Ruiz
I agree with this to an extent--I think after the point deduction and all the holding Huggy Bear Hatton was doing made Castillo quit. I think Ricky is a sham and he must train under Ruiz--This is only the 3rd or 4th Hatton fight I have watched and he gets away with more holding than ANYONE I have ever seen at a championship level.
What I don't get is WHY??? Hatton seems to have all the tools that all the holding should not be needed. He has quick hands, good footwork, good power and he can throw combos like a demon--so what's with the RUIZ act???
