    HUGE step up for Conor Benn. Maybe it's the big fight that awaits after Conor has defeated Amir Khan ?

    Wait... shouldn't this actually read "MAB is returning to the ring"?

    Fighting one of the Hattons in an exhibition...

    Ah, I wondered what they'd call it. I know what I would. Good luck to them, if they need to replenish their coffers who am I to stop them, won't be contributing though.

    Pardon my ignorance mate but your happy for 2 fighters who were over the hill 10 years ago grabbing the limelight from more deserving cases ( not to mention the money which both made plenty) so you can watch a ringwalk?

    I can't see any problem with it.
    It's only an exhibition fight- not as though he thinks he's gonna be top dog.

    And I think it will do Hatton's health ( and waistline) good to train for a fight.

    If people don't like it don't watch it, simple

    It's called nostalgia? It happens as you get older.

    Big fan of hatton but what is he doing with this. Cant help but think hes also choosen the wrong opponent for it as well. These things work better with a bit of needle....or an opponent that gets peoples backs up etc. The problem is barrera,s probably loved over here just as much as hatton if not more so.

    Hatton was also about a passionate crowd....its a bit like do we really want to see him punching barreras head in. Now junior witter or something like that would work....or a floyd rematch. Who would admittedly batter him worse than the first time round at this point...but an opponent like that would have changed it from a... what is he doing to a lets see this...could be interesting.

    I predict it’ll be as big a success as Nigel Benn vs Sakio Bika was.

    Is this a huge Box Office event - perhaps Soup Hatton could be on the undercard along with Connor Benn and Derek Chisora.

    Like an exasperated parent who can't understand why his young son can't skateboard Ricky has to grab the board and show him how it's done.

    "I was good at this once, just watch this ..."
