You know the Hatton haters are getting desperate when they have to resort to Malignaggi as the guy who can finally beat him.
Delusional! IT reminds me of the pathetic dudes who seriously thought that Gatti would expose Mayweather

I'm a Hatton fan, but his last couple of fights have been terrible to watch. Even if he's in a foty with Castillo and wins by KO, his haters will say Castillo was shot or some bullshit.

Regardless of how he did it, the simple fact is he's a world class boxer who beat the no.1 LW of the time and then beat several other alphabet guys, one of whom was at a higher weight.
I can say hand on heart i have never heard anyone i know from the U.K say they dont like Ricky,even my gran likes him!! lol. That a true statement

That post wins ESB prize for the honourary "billy bullshit" post of the year award. No ONE GIVES A **** IF HATTON WAS ILLUMINOUS YELLOW AND COVERED IN GREEN SPOTS.He gets slated because people know he can do better and most are not happy with the way he picks and choses his opponents.You can call yourself a fan of boxing if your going to insinuate BS claims about people hating him because of his colour.

I'm Mexican so I'm a bit obligated to root for Castillo. That being said, Hatton is one of my favorite active fighters and I wouldn't be too heartbroken if he beat Castillo.

I give two shits that he blows up between fights. The fact that he makes weight EVERY time is a testament to his professionalism. He fights his ass off every minute of every round and he truly "keeps it real". I find it impossible to dislike a fighter cut from that cloth.

IMO, this fight (regardless of outcome) will not change any opinions of Hatton, just reinforce existing ones. If you already dislike him, you will dislike him more for losing or for beating a (conveniently after the fact) shot fighter. If you already like him, you'll applaud him for giving 100% regardless of the result.

Well I feel a little silly for saying that now as I've never met anyone who dislikes him either

But i'm basing it on the people who believe he's ducking Witter. Or they think he's boring, when they've only ever seen his fight with Urango or something.

Nice post How will the Mexicans take to MAB walking in with Rickys belt? I was a naz fan bye the way and now MAB is one of my fave fighters.

Zoo was virtually done at 140 when PBF was there. No one could stop PBF at 140 he would have beaten old man Zoo and humilated Hatton there as well.

Hatton most certainly has bigger fish to fry. Although it would be good to see him beat the snot out of Witter, just to shut him and his fans up. But considering the talent available at LW and up again to 147, why would he bother with him?

I agree,i would love to see him fight all the top 140 fighters and hold all the titles,he dose not have to fight at 147 imo.

before he fought kosta tszyu, people never give him a chance. then when he beats a still very good KT, he get credit for beating an old man.

Ricky took some punishment in the early rounds of that fight. i didn;t think he was going to win until the late rounds.

I think the manc mexican has been on the slide since. he hasn't looked good since the manussa figjht. i don't know whether it's decline or he may be struggling tlo adapt to fighting in america.wwill soon find out
