Will wait until Hatton completes his career at 140lbs. He probably can still make the weight.

Come on, is this thread for real? All I have to say is, of course we're talking about the prime "Radar" Benitez, and not the version that got ko'd by Hilton and Moore, right? I don't care what version of Hatton you bring into the picture, Benitez would have been IMPOSSIBLE for Ricky to deal with, and would have lost the most lopsided of all lopsided decisions, that is if the referee didn't step in to stop it because of Ricky taking too much punishment and being so completely outclassed. Benitez, for a relatively short period of time, in his prime, was supremely gifted.
