That's exactly how I saw it. Maybe that's reading too much into it, but that was my first impression on reading the article.

It's all so ****ing transparent. He keeps going on about how Calzaghe, Haye, Macca have all fought at 2am but the great guy he is, he's treating the fans to a 10pm start.
The guy is a sneak, cringeworthy.
Point understood, but not agreed with!

He can come across as being a bit false, with the whole 'is it a bird, is it a plane, no it's Hatton' routine with regard fighting early etc, but I don't think it is done in a particularly devious way.

Let's face it, Hatton isn't exactly an intelligent enough fella to be able to think of making loaded remarks

This fight is at 10am as the US networks do not want to cover it.
They're probably saving dates for Witters come back.

I think some people will manage to get upset (or feign being upset) no matter what he says. The Klitscho remark is typical, what has that REALLY got to do with Hatton not fighting Witter..?

I think you may be underestimating how manipulative the guy is. I mean, he's not made such vast sums of money from being a p4p fighter or from having a Gatti like style, because he does not fall into either category.
He's done it through selling himself as a man of the people etc. whose best mate is a retarded kid and the Man City business.

EVERYTHING. Hatton made a poor analogy that his willing to fight anyone and go out on his shield even if that meant lacing them up to fight Vlad as apparently he "loves a ruck". But yet he avoided Witter for near on a decade despite Witter doing everything that was asked of him. Its time you woke up and smelt the coffee.

Thats where we differ, I just think you are a bit paraniod about the guy, see things that really arn't there and kick off over things that wouldn't cause you to bat an eyelid if it were any other fighter.

I think what most people really dislike is the whole celebrity culture in the UK at the moment (I hate it) and see someone 'normal' as almost a totem figure, and are willing to support them because of it.

Maybe that is right, maybe it isn't, but I would certainly rather support a normal person than some arrogant wanker who is up their own arse and obsessed with being in the paper constantly - I will name examples in a few minutes.

Its time got over Witter-Hatton not happening. You'll have it as part of your epitaph the way it going.

Fair enough Gaz, we disagree. I just think he's a conman, a manipulative and sneaky individual.
I hate such charlatans. Eriksson is another one.

surely this describes Hatton perfectly?? Or did I miss a joke somewhere?

I've never met the guy but I know people who know him well. They all say, without exception, that he's a genuine nice guy. Until something happens to prove otherwise, thats good enough for me.

I agree on old baldie though....
