I think David UK has some great points- if Cotto and Hatton can fight at catchweight(144?) it would make one of the biggest/best fights of the decade.
I possible fight with PBF will run into trouble over money- Hatton IMO brings just as much to the table

Dave i like the way you think sort of. i mean i like that you want to keep Hatton active because thats what his slobby ass needs.

but i dont like that people want there favourite fighters protected. thats BS.
i want every fighter out there to face the best they can not aviod the best.

so if you want Hatton to aviod all southpaws that would mean no fight for Hatton with such guys like

Zab Judah at 147 or 140
Sharmba Mitchell at 147 or 140
Paul Williams at 147
Cory Spinks at 147
David Diaz at 140

so your telling us that he needs to aviod all these fights.
Judah,Mitchell and Spinks are 'nothing' fights for Hatton and I doubt HBO would agree to them anyway.

Fact is, he's always struggled with southpaws,Magee,Collazo,Urango.

There's plenty of big fights still available,Malignaggi,Mayweather,Harris(if he beats Witter, which I doubt) Cotto.

Hatton hates Witter and the only way I could see that fight happening is if Hatton loses a couple of fights and looks for one last payday in the UK

judah will be a good fight, spinks would be boring but he would run to a boring ud.

The other observation which I forgot to mention, was that the Castillo fight wasn't a gruelling fight, so there's no reason to have a long rest. This should preserve Hatton's 'miles on the clock'

but what so that means a fight with Judah will never happen because poor old Ricky might lose.

imagine that he can put away Tszyu with dirty tactics yet probably gets a lesson by Judah. what would that say about his legacy.

i didnt want to say this to you of all people Dave but you are starting to sound like Frank ****** with trying to hide Hatton's flaws.

How about a rewriting of a Manchester chant with Hatton put in place of "football"....

Left side of crowd: "Oh Manchester".
Right side of crowd: "Oh Manchester".
Left side: "Is wonderful".
Right side: "Is wonderful".

Whole crowd:"Oh Manchester is wonderful, its full of tits, fanny and Hatton, Oh Manchester is wonderful".



Maybe change fanny for ***** so the Yanks understand it, and so that HBOs team have to apologise to the viewers.
