Khan, Brook Agree: Ricky Hatton The Tougher Opponent

By Edward Chaykovsky

British rivals Amir Khan (26-3, 18KOs) and Kell Brook (28-0, 18KOs) agree on one thing - they view Ricky Hatton (45-2, 32KOs) as the tougher opponent. Both boxers were asked by Sky Sports Ringside if Hatton would be a tougher opponent [if Khan and Brook weren't facing each other].

Hatton returns after a three-year layoff on November 24th against former WBA champion Vyacheslav Senchenko.

Khan: Styles make fights. I've sparred with Kell, I've never sparred with Ricky. But I think a tougher fight would be Ricky because he's been in there with the world class opponents. He's been in there and shown that he's a class fighter at that level. To be in there with Mayweather and Pacquiao, that's no joke. He's proven himself.

Brook: I think Ricky with the experience. He's an all around fighter. He can take a shot and keep coming. He's got a good engine in him. He's an all-action fighter.

Gotta give Hatton credit, that dude gets sought after as much as Cotto. He is definitely a premier draw, even 3 years after his retirement.
