Would Khan even want the fight at that point? Makes no sense for his career I'd suggest. Seeing as he'd be very, very likely to lose (if Hatton has got past Paulie and Pac I think that's fair to say).

I foresee a good couple of years before Khan goes near world level, there's a Sky deal to see through first for a start, and he IS Sports Network at the moment...

There again the money and opportunity in a Hatton fight might change their minds

I think it would depend on Khans attitude, he may think Hatton was ready for the taking and that the fight was "now or never" with Hattons impending retirement.

Can the people who think Khan can beat Hatton please give the one defining moment in his career thus far that has you convinced?

I can see this version of Ricky Hatton potentially taking a lot of punishment from Khan and losing on a late stoppage or cuts.

On the other hand, I don't think that Khan could keep Hatton off him for 12 rounds either so that's why I think it is almost a pickem fight for me.

Hatton will kill him, in any state. You guys are really hoping beyond hope for a fight that will match the hype - you just won't get it.

It's not even close to being a 'pickem'

Khan still hasn't fought outside of domestic class.

He was given fits by Gomez, who is similar to Hatton, but a lot worse.

Khan needs to prove he can fight on the inside. Can take a punch. Can take a shot to the body. Can fight a guy the same size as him. Can fight a guy bigger than him. Can prevent himself from eating shots. And can stop people getting on the inside against him.

Once he's shown some of these attributes, I'll give him a small chance against Hatton.

I really don't think Hatton is bigger than him in any sense. He's not that thick, except in the legs, and Khan is broad. Khan is way taller and longer.

There is something ****ed up about Hatton's bone structure (and eating habits), otherwise he'd make lightweight

Otherwise, I agree with everything. Khan was visibily hurt from Gomez's body shots, christ this is a former super feather YEARS past his peak. I really see Khan in a heap.

Hatton has walked through bigger punchers than Khan and been able to get on the inside. Once this happens, it will be the end.

He has kamikaze defence, and cannot fight on the inside for toffee - and doesn't like brawling full stop.

Who is the #2 P4P brawler currently??

A certain Mr Hatton I would say.

But Khan's beating up 130 pound guys every fight, Hatton is bigger than these people.

Big's probably the wrong word though, strong would be better. Khan has not come close to showing he can handle a guy as strong as Hatton.

No, you were right, seeing as Khan fights at 135 and Hatton has a WORLD TITLE at 147 he's bigger alright

I'm not sure it even comes down to strength and size. It's simply that Khan can't deal with pressure of any sort, he can't keep a guy at range with his offence and he's inept defensively inside.

He's soft around the ribs..and well..his chin is horrible.

There are numerous SFW's, lightweights or jr welters that will beat him.
