Sorry Gaz completely misred your point- I guess Steve Murray hit me a little harder then i first thought.

Okay guys another excellent debate with a wide range of views aired.

If anyone is interested you can see an article in the Ring's magazine new faces about Ajose Olusegun written by Evan Korn. It is an excellent article.

Also Ajose has got up to number 11 in the WBC ratings. A certain Mr Ricky Hatton is at number 1 in the WBC ratings. I assume this is because Hatton gave up the IBF title to face Castillo hence the WBC were able to put him back in the ratings.

Witter on the other hand has done that (won the WBC). IF he beats Harris then he has every right to expect a match with Hatton. Hatton should fight either PBF Cotto or Witter. It is that simple. I dont want to hear about Malignaggi. In fact a witter fight would be a great tune up to Cotto or PBF.

Witter has done things the hard way and now deserves his shot at Hatton. This will be a massive fight in the UK, dont let anyone tell you different.
Yep, a really huge fight, they tell us it isn't, but it is! It should be on ITV for eveyone in the UK to see down the pub on Saturday night.

Most Hatton fans had him down as a live underdog, which I think was a fair assessment.
