By Edward Ckaykovsky

Promoter and former champion Ricky Hatton praised WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns for his victory last Saturday night in Glasgow when he came from behind to stop unbeaten Jose Gonzalez in nine rounds. Gonzalez appeared to win the first seven rounds, but began to fade badly and then quit on his stool before the start of the tenth - claiming a left hand injury.

"I was very fortunate where I was able to beat people who were more talented than me because I wanted it a bit more. When you get to that level where you are very evenly matched, you have to drag it out. No matter how much you work in the gym on a game plan, you have to drag it out in the chmapionship rounds and that's what Ricky did. I know [Gonzalez] damaged his hand a little bit but he was tiring. Maybe he lost a bit of bottle? Maybe he did but because of what Ricky was doing," Hatton told Sky Sports.

I was impressed with the size of the crowd that Burns was able to bring. He can fill out an arena better than Adrien Broner.

The english commentators are so much better than the ones in the US. They were calling the fight right from the start. Gonzalez was getting in Burns ass from round 1.
