Mike Tyson Supports Ricky Hatton's Fight, Also Cautions

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson met with the British press to discuss the launch of his new clothing line. Also took questions on the comeback of former champion Ricky Hatton (45-2, 32KOs). Hatton is back in the ring on November 24th against former welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-1, 21KOs) at the Manchester Arena. It will be Hatton's first fight in over three years. Tyson supports the return, but also cautions the British star to take it slow.

Tyson said - "We may say 'retire, retire, you're crazy' but then he hits the champion on the chin and he's champion again - so what do we know. It's up to him to find out. Just take it easy and don't go over your head to prove that you're tough. Just go in there and take easy fights, build your confidence back up and get comfortable to being back in the ring. You have to have your pride and ego in check and know that these are the proper procedures that you have to do to reach the proper destinations in life. You have to take small steps with everything in life."
