I dont see Malignaggi beating Hatton, but I see a pretty beatable fighter in Hatton.

Matter of fact Hatton is wide open at times, especially for left hooks. Boxers who like to move around and counter have a lot of opportunities to land there shots on Ricky and boxers who like to exchange also do.

Honestly I would Pick Bradley and Torres to beat Hatton. I think Bradley would be able to land a lot of his quick straight right hands and he would hurt Hatton multiple times, maybe he would even get him out of there. Same thing with Torres, I think he would be able to hurt Hatton. Hatton would back him up against the ropes, but Torres would let his hands go there like he did against Cotto and like Lazcano did against Hatton. IF Hatton would really back him up. Because if Torres has to go forward himself, he tends to lose his balance.
We also shouldnt forget about Kotelnik who throws nice short combinations and who would land some great shots on Hattons chin, thats for sure. It would just be the question how he could handle Hattons pressure.

Witter looked like crap after some rounds against Bradley, but he would also stand a chance. There are several guys at 140 who would be very good opponents for Hatton IMO, although the division definitely isnt very strong right now.

Bradley, Torres, Witter, and Forbes all have what it takes to beat Ricky Hatton at 140.

Bradley because of his accurate punching and speed.
Torres because of his power punching.
Witter because of his quick counters (although I'd take Hatton to outwork him)
Forbes because of his defense coupled with speed and technical skills.

Hatton should rightfully be favored over the likes of Kendall Holt and Paulie Malignaggi.

Yes. Any of the top 135 would beat hatton at 140. Pacman Marquez Cassamayor Guzman Campbell. And at 140 Amir Khan. I know of at least 8 fighters at 147 that could beat hime if he dared to go to 147. So he should stay at 140 where his lack of skill is not taken advantage of.

I can't see any top 135 pounder beating Hatton because they'd be at a strength disadvantage and would thus be forced to fight at his distance, leaving them susceptible to his roughhousing/mauling tactics.

Casamayor struggled with Katsidis's attack and as unrefined as Hatton may be, he's much more refined and technically skilled than Katsidis.

Khan simply lacks the chin to compete at the higher levels of the sport. Limond cracked his jaw and he's a featherfisted featherweight who moved up.

Agree with you completely at 147; Mayweather, Cotto, Mosley, Margarito, Quintana, Judah, Clottey, Williams, Berto, and maybe Collazo in a rematch all beat Hatton in my opinion.

He looked very beatable the last fight, but if he gets a solid win against Malignaggi, then that changes my thoughts a little bit...
