Default Hatton is back tonight!

Does it hurt you Wardites that your man can only sell 8500 tickets in a superfight with Dawson when Hatton can sell 17500 without even having an opponent named?

Oakland...Mecca of Boxing, right?

Notice the presser yesterday had more fans than the Oracle arena.

I really hope that Hatton wins tonight. However, in the back of my mind I am thinking he is going to lose on a decision.

I haven't been able to help but notice the lack of these type of threads on here the last couple days considering Ricky is coming back into the ring today.

I have seen more posters just saying things that sound like they are prepared to see Ricky lose tonight.

You go back a couple years on the day of a Hatton fight there would be swarms of posters supporting him.

How is the "buzz" over there?

It does not matter how many fans he draws. What matters is can he take a punch and not fall apart. He will get hit and he better not be hung over.

It does seem like he could have found a "softer touch" to start back with.

Regardless, come on Ricky!!

He will be stopped today. Hattons chin is a joke at this point. Hell it was a joke as soon as he came to the US so the only reason I dont say it has always been a joke is because I didnt see much of him over in the UK.

Arran, everybody knows Ricky sells more tickets per hour than ward sells per fight but that's only because the Brits are 4 no1 sports fans in the world.

Senchenko can bang when he wants to but very often he decides not to. It should be a tough fight with Hatton winning by decision.

If Ward was British, he would be a national hero and enjoy similar support to Hatton. (but what has Ward got to do with Hatton's return?) Ward's fans are following a potential ATG fighter, why would they care how popular or how much money he makes?

Fans these days enjoy checking PPV and ticket sales more than actually watching fights.

Let's see if he's anything like the old Rickster.

With his bible bashing personality and his kinda boring style,(no hater though he's a genius) he would never be a national hero in any country,especially not England..

17,500 mugs.

And that's coming from a former Hatton fan who lives in the UK.
