Malignaggi: No Doubt, I Would Have Beaten Hatton!

By Bill Emes

WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi is not shocked by Ricky Hatton's ninth round knockout defeat to former beltholder Vyacheslav Senchenko last Saturday in Manchester. Earlier this year, Malignaggi stopped Senchenko to capture the WBA crown. If Hatton would have won the fight, the stage would have been set for a rematch with Malignaggi in 2013. Malignaggi was really looking forward to avenging his 2008 TKO defeat to Hatton, but now he won't get the opportunity. Hatton retired after his loss to Senchenko.

"Unfortunately most people didn't believe me. Unfortunately Ricky Hatton didn't believe me. There must be a reason that he was that stubborn in picking Senchenko as the opponent. He really thought that guy he beat four years ago was [the same guy] who knocked out Senchenko. It's a shame," Malignaggi said.

"Hatton really started to believe the hype and said 'oh Malignaggi knocked him out, imagine what I'll do to him.' He was lunging in with punches and he was convinced that he would knock him out but that didn't happen. Senchenko is a good fighter."

"I have no doubt that I would have beaten Ricky Hatton. I should have beaten him in 2008, but now I have to live with that [loss]. This would have given me a certain measure of revenge but now [it won't happen]. But I know, and no matter what anybody tells me, I was better than [Ricky Hatton]. And that kind of burns me, but now I have to live with that. But it is what it is."

Anyone would have beaten Elf hatton

Paul McCloskey maybe the worst fighter ever would have beaten Elf Hatton. Even Punchless dance queen Paula would have won. The Elf went out on his knees in front of 20,000 stunned drunken Brit fans. Great-and the Elf was crying.

I think Hatton would have beat Mallignaggi easy. Senchenko hits far harder than Mallignaggi and is pretty tough to boot. Plus Mallignaggi doesn't go to the body and Hatton wouldn't have tired out so quick. I think Hatton would have won by a close but clear UD.

Paulie better be sorry he thinks he can beat anyone on any given night. He's such a dumb@ss for thinking he can win a fight in a sport that he's devoted his life to. What a d-bag right guys? :rolleyes:

Wasn't Paulie's excuse after the Khan fight that he was past-prime? Yet now he's apparently so much better than he was in 2008...

I doubt Paulie would beat the current version of Hatton, he doesn't have the power.
