    Loved watching Ricky. A real buzz saw of a fighter. The Tszyu fight was one that stands out for me. Ricky pulled it out the bag against one of the most fearsome fighters around at the time. Great career. One of our best.

    If anyone wants to skip it I've summarised it below.

    Me depression.
    Lickle Ricky Fatton, grew up on a council estate fighting in Vegas.
    I still wonder how it would've gone if it weren't for Cortez.
    I were winning that second round against Pacquiao by a country mile.
    Right hook roll under.
    Kosta Zoo.

    That reads like a very bitter post. Did he ignore you when you asked him for an autograph / photo with him or something?

    Tbf I think it’s clear as day that he has suffered with depression though. All that crap with his family keeping stuff from him, must have been pretty crap aswell.

    Apparently he’s a massive Daniel Dubois fan and like you is 100% convinced he’s going to win this weekend if that helps Jim??

    Several sources over the years have said he didn’t get all of his purses if you know what I mean.

    The reasons he fell out with Billy Graham and Warren at the time and now they are friends again.

    Usual rhetoric is "my dad went to prison and my mum was on drugs" makes a change for Fatton not to follow that trend.
