Default Who would you rather be, Calzaghe or Hatton?

As fans, its easy for us to sit and critisise fighters for there choices of opponent.

Does Ricky Hatton deserve credit for daring to be brave, or is he fool for not accepting his level and sticking to it?.. (Or perhaps it's somewhere in between?)

On one hand you've got Calzaghe who hardly took risks (& when he did it was somewhat forced upon him) yet he's retired unbeaten, healthy (a bit of coke excluded) and seems pretty content with life.

And then you have Ricky, Gazza MK2 in the making.

We all love to give VVarren stick which is warranted most of the time. However I think it's fair to assume that Hatton's career would have turned out much differently had he stuck with Frank.

Thoughts?

She clearly doesn't nag him about getting that room sorted out. He needs to plaster the walls, put up some wall paper, fit a radiator and get that floor cleaned. We could see him out of the ring for a few more months

He's already plastered the walls by looks. Dodgy aim from The Cobra..

Hatton.

There's no doubt been left as to how good he actually was.

Calzaghe... if he'd dared, we never know.

Ricky will always get more love from the fans. That said, I'd rather live as Calzaghe.

I'd rather be Calzaghe.

I simply couldn't handle having Ricky Hatton's face.
