Tyson on Hatton: Sometimes You Need To Regenerate

by Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

MIKE TYSON has warned Ricky Hatton not to be in a rush to take on the world’s best again.

The former undisputed world heavyweight champion spent four years out of the ring when he was jailed for rape before returning in 1995 and then beating Briton Frank Bruno to regain the title a year later.

Hatton, 34 yesterday, makes a comeback three years since he last fought when he takes on Ukrainian Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena on November 24.

But Tyson, 46, said: “It’s really difficult to make a ­comeback. This is a sport you have to be consistent in – you’ve got to be fighting four times a year. That’s how you get better and better and better.

“If he has the same vigour and hunger it’s good – some people just need time off. He was pretty active for a while and he was in a lot of tough fights.

“Sometimes people just need time off to ­regenerate their batteries and we saw that does happen and they become successful.

“I would tell him to take it very easy. Don’t go in over your head to prove you’re tough. Go in there and take it easy, build your confidence back up and get comfortable back in the ring.”

Mike Tyson launched his new Mike Tyson Collection which will be exclusively available at the London Fight Zone in Lillywhites and sportsdirect.com.

My biggest fear for Hatton is that he isn't able to regenerate. He went out looking like he had no punch resistance. Is that something you can regain?
