    As I said before, you Hatton fans are a fragile bunch. Instead of defending your boy, you lash out at anyone who dares criticise him. So what if I said Harrison would beat Guzman? Whats that got to do with the argument?

    As for your 'take' on the hatton Collazo fight Strike, I find it as laughable as your take on the first Harrison-Medina fight. Of course you will have people proclaiming you to be right, cos Im the big bad scotsman & you are the heroic english Hatton fan, & we all know how this forum operates.

    Attacking me about Harrison just cos I dont like Ricky? poor show. Although I shouldnt be surprised, cos as I said before, Hatton fans are more fragile than your average boxing fan & lose all control of their senses when you dare question Rickys so called 'greatness'

    I suppose I can forgive you thoughfor your nastiness, cos you Hatton nuthuggers must be going through pre-fight nerves, just like your idol.

    You know, when it comes to rating Collazo, people forget just how many people do actually think he is a serious talent. The fact Shane Mosley gave him a chance says a ****ing lot. In the hype for that fight, Mosley was all praise for Collazo, and there was a fair bit of talk about this being another Mosley/Wright fight.

    I think Collazo proved himself. He is a good fighter. He'd beat a lot of fighters currently at 147lbs.





    Just on the defending hatton thingy now, honestly, I get in so many arguments about him, but I'm not even that big a fan of his. He scrapes my 10 favourite fighters at the moment. However, I get into so many of those petty arguments because his haters are so ****ing biased. He is EASILY the most disrespected fighter on this forum.

    You always get a ****ing load of posts about him. he hasn't beaten anyone, he hugs, Tszyu was old, Castillo is shot - It's ****ing pathetic.

    Maybe Strike and others don't feel the same way I do about it, I dunno.



    And Arthur is a ****ing ****. I hope you can back what you said about Hatton up, Dunky. Have you got any proof? That will make him a clear favourite of mine :D Arthur is going nowhere though, and I love it.

    Or when he threw his gumshield at Witter after the Hutchison fight


    In fairness I like Hatton as a fighter, and hope he wins everytime regardless of what i think of him.

    Well Dunky mate I agree that Hatton avoiding Witter is despicable. I am not sure whether it was Hatton avoiding Witter or Hatton's management however you get the distinct impression that someone did not really fancy it. My only beef with Hatton is that for all his fights I have not seen him genuinely defeat another young gifted fighter at their peak. You suspect they have chosen Castillo because he is a name fighter past his best. However I might be wrong but I think they miscalculated as Castillo might do him in tonight.


    Ajose and I watched Ndou and Malignaggi yesterday and Ajose is adamant he would take care of all the world champions at Light Welterweight including Hatton and Witter when the opportunity comes.

    Certainly I don't believe Hatton won the fight against Collazo and Collazo is not exactly what I would call a great fighter or highly skilled. Furthermore I was not impressed with Hatton's performances against Maussa and Urango.

    Hatton fans even think he can beat PBF but deep down Hatton does not crave this contest otherwise he would not have asked £13 million when he has never earned a purse anywhere near that high. That is a ploy to say I don't want it so let me price myself out.

    one of hatton's better moments.

    my stance on hatton-witter hasn't changed.

    if witter beats harris, let's get it on.

    witter was boxing euro bums for years.

    he's finally stepped up a bit and won some worthwhile fights.

    nearly there junior.

    nearly. :yep

    well olu whoever you are, how you doing mate this is the first time i've had a bit banter with you.really though what do you and my mate dunky base your opinion on as regarding olusegun beating hatton? i must admit i don't know much about the guy other than he's beat a couple of average british pugs as well as some from the continent.so as a result of my ignorance i decided to consult his record on the dreaded boxrec.(it has it's uses)and what did i find?the combined stats of his last 5 opponents as follows.
    total fights 125. wins 62. defeats 67. draws 5.combined knockouts 19.
    now don't get me wrong here statistics can lie,and some fighters can be sleepers who are also avoided,but on what basis do you and dunky come to the conclusion that this man can beat hatton? especially that he's had to go the distance with gary reid someone who hatton would dispose of inside 3 rounds and that they're obviously avoiding punchers like the plague.comments please.

    Please make the fight and we would happily come to Manchester and take it. If Ricky and you think this is the same proposition as fighting a 35 year old Kostya Tyzu or Castillo perhaps on the slide then you are mistake. Fight a live and dangerous contender like Ajose and then let us find out who is a great fighter.

    I think you are missing the point mate. Before I start nice to talk to you. Ajose Olusegun is a Light Welterweight who has been avoided like the plague because he has the 3 proverbial curses like Marvin Hagler had in the late 1970's that being he is good, he is black and he is a southpaw. This former world class amateur won several international amateur medals such as the All African Games Gold medal and represented Nigeria in the Sydney Olympics.

    As a professional he has had to take many fights at very late notice and still defeat his opponents in style. Furthermore he has had to take many fights against men in higher weight divisions and beat them. He is Light Welterweight who has regularly beaten and stopped Welterweights and Junior Middleweights and in some cases Middleweights. When Sports Network called him up to fight Bradley Pryce at the last minute they thought they were calling up an African opponent for Pryce to kick around well as you know Pryce got humiliated in his hometown.

    He knocked out Ali Nuumbembee the current Welterweight Commonwealth champion and with his victory over Gary Reid the other week can claim to be the Commonwealth champion at 3 weight divisions from Light Welterweight to Light Middleweight.

    He won the African Boxing Union title against Victor Kpadenue who went the distance subsequentl with the hard hitting British Middleweight Gary Lockett.

    All the top Light Welterweight in the UK have been avoiding him. Colin Lynes and Ted Bami pull out of bouts with him, Junior Witter vacated the Commonwealth title rather than face Ajose who was his mandatory. Mick Hennessy made it clear on the pages of boxing news that he had no interesting in putting Lenny Daws in with him for the Commonwealth title. The top welterweights in Britain are not keen either.

    I guess he has been viewed as high risk low reward however now he is about to enter the WBC top 10 ratings in the division and adding the Commonwealth title to his African belt this might change with him been backed by Sky Sports and Frank Maloney. This is a world class fighter ready, willing and able to fight and beat the very best. Don't forget he did some of these guys as an amateur.

    Ajose is not avoiding punches or anybody rather he is prepared to take on all comers especially the best. Please quote me on this "If you are a Light Welterweight I don't care who you are Ajose Olusegun will beat you period".

    As for Ricky I like him for his crowd pleasing style but he needs to fight the younger fighters like himself at their peak or approaching it such as PBF, Cotto, Witter, Magarito and Ajose. Witter and Ajose are based in the UK so there is no excuse. Remember Nigel Benn fought Chris Eubank to establish his legend and Hatton needs to take similar risks to ensure true greatness.

    We are prepared to do our bit which will probably mean becoming the WBC mandatory and forcing Witter's hand. We are ready are Hatton and Witter?

    Olu I like you and I respect that you come on here to fight your guys corner with people who are going to disagree with you and knock your guy. Ajose needs a world class victory before i'd give him any chance at all Vs witter or Hatton.... put him in with Collazo or Urango and make a point then people might start thinking.. surely those fights won't be that hard to make.

    We will take any of these guys tomorrow or Witter and Hatton period. The question is would they? God knows that we have offered. If you don't call Frank Maloney hence we might need to become the mandatory contender. When we became the Commonwealth mandatory Witter chose to give up the title.

    Theres another saying - you dont **** on your own doorstep. And as I currently do bits for VIP promotions (and Ali) then I'd be pretty stupid not to have congratulated the Glossop based UK adoptee. Ive also met Ali and found him to be a nice guy, really nice guy. Couple that with the fact he was told before the fight that if he lost he was getting packed off back home, lets just say there was quite a bit riding on it. As for glass houses and stones - well u dont like Hatton for being a disrespectul ****, and yet your fav (ex) fighter is disrespectful to the point of lamping innocent people.
