Malignaggi Throws Down Trilogy Offer To Ricky Hatton

Former two division champion Ricky Hatton has been in the news lately.  An article that was recently published by BoxingScene.com states that Hatton has been back in the gym and may be interested in a comeback. Recent photos of the Brit show that he has lost a considerable amount of weight. According to the article, WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi is rumored to be on the top of Hatton's wish list.

I recently spoke to the Magic Man to gauge his interest in the fight.  "I am trying to find out if the rumors are true.  If they are then of course I am interested.  It is always nice to be able to go back and avenge your losses."

Hatton and Malignaggi first squared off in November 2008 with Hatton winning via 11th round knockout.  Malignaggi has four losses on his resume and on numerous occasions has said that the Hatton loss bothers him the most.  The New Yorker switched trainers after the Hatton defeat and feels that he can extract revenge with the current team he has assembled.

"There is just no way Ricky Hatton can beat me. I say that respectfully.  He did his thing.  He was an iconic figure in boxing but I eat those styles up.  If you watched me the entire 2008 you will see it was sub par.  It wasn't just the Hatton fight. It was an inner (team) problem that I should have fixed a long time before that but I didn't," Malignaggi told BoxingScene.

Malignaggi finished our conversation with a proposal for Hatton. 

"I would love to fight Hatton on October 20th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. After that I will give him the third fight in the UK to settle the trilogy."

Don't think Hatton would come back, certainly not for a rematch with Malignaggi. :lol1:

I live in the uk and spoke to someone this week that knows the Hattons. he said there is NO WAY Ricky Hatton will fight. Apparently he has been back in rehab cos of his drug and drink problems and that's why he has lost so much weight. They didn't want the press to know so put out a story of a co...

This is why I can't respect Malignaggi as a boxing pundit, he's too biased and set in his views and a bit delusional. He was saying the same crap about Hatton before they fought, how Hatton was C Level and a club fighter, and after Hatton not only beat the crap out of him, but also schooled him, ...

[QUOTE=dannydogwood]Powder Puff Paula isn't any good. Sure she wants easy fights to keep the nothing belt she has. Funny how this broad is even a marginal champ. Boxing is becoming a joke with Paula having a belt.[/QUOTE] How can you say that have you ever seen paulie fight he is a very skille...
