Default Do you think Ricky Hatton will change his style of fighting?

He used to be a come forward brawler, but do you think this time he will change his style? Especially after what happened against Mayweather and Pacquiao.

I've seen footage of his training, he's fighting like Winky and Clottey right now with the turtle shell.

Style is something that's natural and unique to you. Ricky is, and always will be a come forward pressure fighter, in his first comeback fight though, I expect him to be a bit more cautious as he feels his way back into the sport

Bob Shannon is a very good trainer, expect Hatton to be able to make it ugly when necessary and Shannon's fighters either have a good block or good head movement

Almost impossible to change a style he has been using his entire career(47 fights). He can add slight improvements but nothing else.

I think he'll still be an aggressive infighter, but I expect him to lose the explosive footspeed that made him so successful, so I could see him trying to fight behind a jab and be more patient in his pressure on his way to the inside.

Don't think you'll see any major changes. Too late to modify greatly. Some slight refinement perhaps.
