Default just watched ricky hatton interview on channel 4 news

He's got a black eye, but the reason of this post is I really didn't realise how old and battered he looks now.

I wish him all the best, but if its boxing what's done that to him , he really should stay out of the ring!

I don't think it's the boxing that's made him look old and battered, it's what he was doing when he wasn't fighting that's taken its toll.

I just saw that same interview. I know Ricky was never an oil painting but he has aged quite dramatically in the last 3 years. I really hope he manages to make this comeback a success - I have my doubts but I hope that I am wrong. I really do not want to see him stiffened by some palooka.

Good luck Ricky, I hope you can turn the clock back.

It's a combination of things, naturally he's no pretty boy, his fighting style is pretty rough and that's taken it's toll, plus he's had a non healthy boozy life style out of the ring as well.

What would the world say if he destroyed this tin can and then called it a day? If he admitted he didn't have it in him but still went out on a W?

That would be fine, he might be able to retire happy and not hit skid row.

It's possible he'll do what Naseem did, come back for one fight, look really shit but retire on a win.

Real possibility. Then all the Ricktards will still say it wasn't about money
