Cleverly: Ricky Hatton Could Still Beat Maliganggi

WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly supports Ricky Hatton's decision to return to boxing and insists he could once again be crowned world champion, though accepts it is unlikely.

"It's a good shout for him to come back. He's only 33 and has had a good break from the sport," Cleverly said.

"He may have the hunger again now and go out on a high after that loss to Pacquiao. I support the decision.

"He was a great fighter - hungry, determined and would fight anybody, taking on the very best. He was a great champion and a fighter to look up to.

"Winning a world title after having so long out of the sport is a long shot, especially after living that lifestyle, but it's possible.

"He's still got the foundation there from many years ago. He could still beat someone like (WBA world welterweight titleholder) Paul Malignaggi."

Hatton wasn't that good when he was in his prime and really should stay retired.

I doubt Hatton can make 140 anymore. He had a hard time making it in his prime. Even if he COULD beat paulie now, that isnt really much to brag about. There are a lot of guys at 140 that can beat paulie

Paulie always would have lost the first time because Hatton had the footspeed to chase him down and could walk through whatever came from Paulie. I have to see how he looks in his next fight to tell you if he can still do it or not
