It's a doco on his comeback. He's pretty brutally honest in it too, speaking about the boozing and his depression. Definitely worth a watch IMO.

Interestingly enough Senchenko was a no-show at yesterday's presser. The mind games have begun.

Fenech Grove scenario - 20 %

Ricky's rough house style causes TKO via cuts - 60%

Ricky by lethargic points decision - 20%
The Fenech Grove scenario was 100% in the end

grove was never good enough to wipe fenechs ass when fenech was at his peak. grove fought fenech when fenech was finished fenechs mojo dissapeared as suddenly as roy jones did. it happened in just 1 fight, it was all gone.

both fighters ruined their legacy by fighting when it was obviously all over. grove was just a victim had he fought fenech before fenech lost his mojo in the nelson 1 draw....green would have been just a victim if jones would have fought him at his peak...

1 fight can be the difference between a champion and a journeyman.

mate, grove and fenech combined to create the best example of a right hand and its result for kids to watch and learn for the history of the sport.

Never liked Hatton as a boxer. He's style of hold and roughing up opponents is shit and borderline cheating. It also really annoyed me when he crapped on how he was fighting for the p4p no.1 crown when he fought Floyd and Pacman when in fact he was nowhere near being p4p no.1.
He had a good career at 140, was always ordinary for a top fighter at 147 and ridiculously overrated by some fans especially the Brits.

Just because you beat p4p no.1 doesn't automatically make you the p4p king.

Did you rate Buster Douglas the p4p king after he ktfo Tyson ?

When you beat a legend, you become a legend

Anyways, gutted for Hatton but hey, that's how it goes

Hatton was a very good fighter maybe not a great fighter, but he would of still been world champ, if there was still only one world champ like the old days.
