Default Is everybody blind!?! Hatton needs Graham.

Hatton dumped Graham after losing to Floyd Mayweather.....Floyd Mayweather!!!! The BEST boxer on the planet!!!!!!!!!! In a competetive fight too!

Since then he's had a further two trainers who tried to change him from a vicious pressure fighter into a joke technical boxer with a diluted pressure fighting style - which didn't work.

Like it or not Hatton trained for the best part of a decade with Graham - it's all he knows. Graham got the best out of Hatton whether Rickey wants to admit this or not. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.

I am right. I know it. 100%. If you disagree; tough. I am right.

No, Hatton just needs to retire. After three years out, his body can no longer afford to fight with the style he built up under Graham. Had he continued training under him, he would have still continued neglecting his defence and getting knocked out regardless. He and his depleted body is the problem. Not the trainer.

Hatton's always been the same fighter, even without Graham. That's his problem.

No Hatton dropped Billy Graham after the Lazcano fight not the Mayweather fight.

I agree. hatton was short and he didnt had the mentality of a technicl fighter, you could not make one out of him even with the most technicl trainer. hatton came with brut force and won the mayority of his fights by doing so, thats why graham was the best trainer for hatton, because he focused ultimatly one that force of ricky.

If Graham has opened up a rehab center then yes. Hatton is done. He'd better be glad he didn't chose Bradley for an opponent.
