But i'm just saying, we can't write Ricky off just yet.
Erik Morales is a good example, he came back a couple of years ago and people were rubbishing him and writing him off "shot to **** he is, no gas tank left, no punch resistance"
He even went up a couple of divisions from where he used to fight, when he went in against Maidana people were calling it tant-amount to suicide, but in my opinion he beat Maidana. He then went on to claim a WBC strap, and put in a very good performance against Danny Garcia considering he was badly out of shape.
I mean it could go the same for Hatton, or it could go wrong. Point is we don't know yet, so if the guy does come back, I think we should just enjoy it for what it is, and who knows, maybe Hatton does have one last run left in the tank, and can give us some exciting nights.
I hope so anyway, boxing can always use characters like him, and i'd love to see how a decent version of Hatton matches up to Garcia, Maidana, Khan, hell even Morales.
Dont compare an ATG like Morales to an over hype guy who's only win is against a past prime Tszyu. Hatton might do well at domestic level, but he is not competing against the best. He should stay retire and look out for his health.
