Default Hatton Vs Junior Witter

I really dont understand why this fight has never took place! Before boxer's go across the pond they need to beat the best at home first I think. I would love to see this fight who do you think would win?

True typeone, I really feel that a lot of the reason that this potential classic never got made is probably a lot to do with Mr Frank Warren!!!

IMO I think Hatton would beat Junior Whitter but The Hitter would have really put it up to him!!

Thats what really gets me about Warren, he very rarely puts his fighters up against anyone decent, hence why Sky punted his shows to a Friday night.

Delighted to see that others have noticed Frank Warren's nefarious tactics. Why would he risk his over rated fighters when he can make a nice living from the micky mouse WBO titles

I think witter would win! I would want Hatton to win but Witter wips his bunches and I do believe that this fight would end on Hatton having cuts???

Gentlemen shall we just get our facts straight here. It wasnt that just that Witters style was the problem. There is more too it that that.

Witter jealous at hattons early career promotion as he in the same promoters stable (sports network aka Frank Warren), threw a hissy fit at the fact he wasnt getting as good fights nor as much coverage as the Hitman.

Now that is down to crowd pleasing styles, hatotn draws 20 k Junior couldnt draw turds to fly post his Zab judah effort, Im afraid and Junior while he was with SN was contracted to meet hatton. Witter had an acrimonous split with Warren which involved a war of words.

So from Warrens perspective do you blame him, and witters do you blame him? No and no, warren doenst want to give witter any help after their fall out and witter basicaly for 18 months of his career until recently has made a noise and impact through calling out hatton.

Amazing now he has signed with Golden boy promotions that all of a sudden "Hatton is irrelevant."

so there you go, thats roughly what occured, these things arent as simple as one fighter ducking another.

Thanks for that JPW, that has opened my eyes a little with regards to why Frank Warren is so disinterested in Junior!!

2+2 doesnt equal 5!!

Not true, Witter was with sports network for a number of years without any problems between himself and Frank warren. Your right he wasn't a draw, however Witter vs Hatton was and still is the biggest domestic fight out there, its the fight the British public wanted to see and still do. Witter vs Hatton would have sold the MEN arena out 3 times over.

You mention Hatton ducking Witter, Hatton is not ducking anyone.. however his promoter is, Witter was a risk for Hatton, Warren does not take risky fights or even 50/50 fights for his fighters. He doesn't want to risk losing his golden goose. Just look at Joe Calzaghe, what a waste of a career.

Frank Warren is becoming a joke, the only reason the Tszyu fight has been made is because after 38 nobody's, blown up lightweights and over the hill fighters, everyone has had enough; the public demanded it, the media demanded it and most importantly for Warren, Hatton demanded it.

Thanks to Kingmo and J.P.W. I can't knock any of your views! But as you are saying the likes of Don King and Warren are not really showing us guys the fights that should be seen, It will end up like wrestling soon lol... I think Terry Marsh had the right idea if you know what I mean..MMM Didn't tyson give him a slap too? Boxers know Boxers and a boxer who wants to be in the history books should then take the power out of promoters hands and demand the good fights.. At the end of the day good draws pull loads of doe anyway. A another fight I would ahve loved to see would have been Roy Jones Vs Steve Colins... Would have loved to see that fight...(Q)Who would win?
