Calzaghe: Hatton Will Not Get Any Better at Age 33
Former world champion Joe Calzaghe, who retired several years ago, has warned Ricky Hatton his return to boxing could be a huge mistake. Calzaghe believes 33-year-old Hatton is putting himself at risk by returning. After three years of retirement, Hatton is due to make his boxing comeback on November 24 at Manchester’s MEN Arena, but an opponent has yet to be announced.
"It’s dangerous and especially when you’re in your 30s. It has to be a worry,’ said Calzaghe to The Metro. "Personally I like Ricky, I’ve known him for many years and the last thing I’d like to see is him getting hurt. I’d prefer Ricky not to box. He’s not going to get any better at the age of 33, but it’s his decision. He’s returned to the gym and that has given him focus and direction, but I’d rather he stay there training and not fight. No-one should be encouraging him to return and I just hope it doesn’t wind up being a big disappointment for him."
He better fight fighters with no punch because whatever punch resistance he had is gone. I think he should stay retired.Comment by NoLove on 09-19-2012
