To say that Dempsey was being unfair somehow is missing the point. Ricky made a good stack of money from this comeback. If he'd pulled out a points win we wouldn't have heard any of this depression spiel. If you choose to live in the spotlight, you need to be comfortable with its glare.
I agree.
Life is tough for all of us.
Hatton's is a much better position that most to pick himself up and find new opportunities.

Yeah, that is a bit weird.
It's not like Hatton losing was any great surprise either.

Happy days..

I could see from the start, that Hatton's timing, speed and co-ordination was way off. Thats what years of eating shit and boozing does to you, Ricky Hatton in general has aged beyond his years compared to other athletes/boxers who have lived disciplined lives, when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle.

Very sad for Ricky Hatton because i could see how much this meant to him, and no loss, no loss in sport is more emotionally hard, than a boxing loss! Very emotionally saddening, and disturbing.

I honestly will probably not post for awhile now, i am really upset.

Even though most people would think i would be more upset for David Haye or Audley Harrison..? You are wrong.

I worry for Ricky Hatton's general mental health, and the affect this loss will have on his life.

Fighters like David Haye & Audley Harrison, in general just love life and can cope in general life and move on from a loss.

Ricky Hatton seems to be unable to move on from a loss.
Great post, PK.

Wish Ricky all the best...

What else is there to say?

and not to forget the real PRIMARY reason he fought last night....to give the flagging hatton promotions a boost.
other reasons he had are well and genuine but thats what got him to come back first and foremost.


greed may well be his undoing in life i think..maybe i'm wrong...but what will his next stunt be if hatton promotions starts going tits up again....he could lose the fortune he made very easily in the part of the boxing game that he wants to be in now...he is aiming to be britains de la hoya.


..and he is a very very rich man, now...he can sit back in comfort knowing he got to the top of his sport....a world champion......bet he'd have taken that the day he turned pro.....but its human nature to always want more

I've changed my perspective somewhat with regards to his choice of opponent. I think it was an ok choice reason I say that is because Senchenko isn't a destructive puncher albeit a solid one with a good jab but doesn't really have the power to take Ricky out cold (though it was a good body shot)

I think if he went for a string of soft touch opponents and he looked good beating them his ego would have likely gone into over drive and he would have been talking about big fights against dangerous fighters who could really hurt him. It was clear he started talking about world titles in his post fight interview. It's a blessing in disguise that Senchenko took him out the way he did. I would not like him to have been pole axed again, especially at 147 by a hard punching welterwight.

Can just imagine him taking out a bum or two and everyone would have been building him up again for a really big fall. This was the best thing to have happened to Ricky in my opinion.

hatton was the least professional boxer of all time
