I am not a Huge Hatton fan...but call him just an "OK fighter" is dubious IMO ! And "ok fighters" Dont reach his level and do as well IMO !

what exactly is his level. 2 titles in 2 divisions? which was a close fight with louie but a lot of people including myself believe he lost. back then the UK had very little to brag about as far as boxing. so they saw ricky as a guy to follow. so they padded his record. he got a huge fan base and made a lot of money TRUE but skill wise he is very limited and very average

I know what your saying buddy ...but dont you think for a such a limited fighter he achieved quite a lot? for his skill set I think he did !
The way i would describe him...is an above average champion who only lost to the very best ....he didnt really duck anyone ether witch is more than can be said about a lot of other champions now days !

If Hatton wasn't half as popular among fans, would he ever have had the opportunity to even face Mayweather or Pacquiao? Where do you rate Hatton as a boxer, not only since the Pacquiao KO but considering his career as a whole?

Is he a

1. Bum (C class fighter): because he lacks many core boxing skills
2. Average Boxer (B) with average boxing ability
3. Excellent Boxer (A) with above average boxing skills.
4. Elite Boxer (A+ Class), he's the cream of the crop.
hatton is an excellent boxer, but he's not elite and he's better than average.

kostya tszyu was p4p number 2 when hatton beat him. so does that make every boxer ranked below just ok?!
