Brits are known for hyping their athletes to high heaven when they're doing well (in all sports, not just boxing) then spitting on them and treating them like garbage when they fail. The harder they fall, the harsher the brit fans become with them. And few people in boxing have fallen harder than Hatton.
spot on

A vastly over rated fighter who has over achieved.Hit and grab,not very fan friendly unless he's fighting a tomato can.

I think he's alright but some people view him as a fake salesman who avoided the biggest British domestic fight for 10 years straight. Which he did but he's an alright lad

Personally I like him a lot, as a fighter and a person, granted he hasn't exactly covered himself in glory since he retired (the Cocaine scandal etc) but I loved his aggressive style in the ring and I loved his "normal bloke down the pub" type personality, as in all honesty, that's just what I'm like

Now, i'm not looking to argue about Ricky with any of you, everyone's entitled to an opinion and i'm not particularly bothered if people like him or not, But I am curious as to the reasons.

So if you don't like Ricky, why?
You will find that most true and reasonable fans of the sport feel like you do. He's a likable character who is exciting to watch (win or lose) and has that warrior spirit. Whats not to like?

But this is ESB and there are a bunch of naysayers on here. Ignore them, they are tards.

After reading this forum I like Ricky, I too would like to see his career go out on a fine note.

Tried my best to like Hatton ... and I do. Enjoyed the excitement he brought to his fights.
But his actual fighting style, I have trouble with. I hate the jump in an clinch style. It's boring, bad for the sport, and I feel should be penalized more often.

I think he was a deluded cunt who avoided witter and bought into is own shit he avoided fast fighters who could punch a bit until he fought pacman and Floyd then he was exposed as a slow plodder who cannot handle fast fighters with pop
