Default Tony Oakey revival inspires Ricky Hatton to come back (maybe).

"Tony found himself in the same position I find myself in now," Hatton told the Manchester Evening News.

"I had a fight and I had a bad defeat and was thinking: 'Have I had too many fights? Have I had enough?'
"But he looked better than ever winning the Prizefighter and was supremely confident in his interviews.

"I've not made a decision on my future yet, but if there is any inspiration I can take, it's from what Tony did.

"Everyone thought it was over for him, but he's come back. Maybe I should look at that and think 'my career is not over yet'."

"One minute he says, 'Do I need it anymore?'" said Ray Hatton. "The next he says, 'How can I go out like that?'

"It has to be his decision and whatever he decides his family will stand by him."

I think that lifestyles away from boxing make Hatton and Oakey quite similar..... I the levels that they are operating on are poles apart....

I hope that Hatton makes the right decision and calls it a day and retires...

Yep it will not happen. Hilarious if it did though.
