Re: Did Billy Graham and Team Hatton con the british public
I don't think you can blame anyone for being positive, they can not go into the fight expecting to get whopped.
Having said that, I do think that Ricky was always going to lose, and people should believe in their own thoughts based on previous fights rather than being sucked in and believing the hype like mindless fools.
I think it is probably time though for Hatton to stop making excuses regarding his ability to fight at 147 and instead look at the real problem. If I were him I'd be thinking seriously hard about whether he has the correct people within his team; whether the reason has performed poorly at 147 is because he fought 2 good fighters who were better than the competition he'd faced at 140.
I expect Witter to beat him if they were to meet.
