Hatton Proved To Dela Hoya and Calzaghe It's Almost Impossible To Make A Comeback
it's difficult to come back from retirement in a sport that demands absolute peak physical and mental conditioning. many thought hatton would make a fairy tale comeback. that train came to a screeching halt after he lost to senchenko by 9th round ko.
there were also talks of dela hoya coming back to fight in the 154 lbs. division. another is calzaghe who many believe could beat the reigning champion, andre ward. and then there was holyfield who wanted to face the klitschkos.
these retired fighters should remain retired. it's not easy to compensate for rusty technique, lose of timing or diminished skills. youthful stamina is another quality that is hard to regain. bottom line is it's the fighters' decision in the end. i just observe on the boxing aspect.
