Ricky Hatton Vs Paulie Malignaggi

Ricky Hatton Vs Paulie Malignaggi

There is not long to wait now for the Ricky Hatton Vs Paulie Malignaggi fight.

I think this could be a tough fight for Ricky Hatton because of Paulie Malignaggi's style. He has great boxing skills, very slick and very sharp. Those types of fighters have always troubled Ricky Hatton. Hopefully, with Ricky Hatton now teamed up with Floyd Mayweather Senior, he has learnt some new skills and sharpened up more. Ricky Hattons last two performances weren't very good, and he even admits that himself.

But for this fight he has been much more dedicated and really seems up to the job. Floyd Mayweather Senior is without doubt one of the best trainers in the world, but can you teach an old dog like Ricky Hatton new tricks? I think you can if the old dog wants it bad enough, and i think Ricky Hatton Does.

Ricky Hatton Vs Paulie Malignaggi has all the makings for a great fight. Paulie Malignaggi is much tougher then he looks too. He took a good beating from Miguel Cotto, and although he lost that fight, many people had respect for him because he lasted the whole fight and took some seriously hard punches. So we know Paulie Malignaggi can take a beating, and with his slick boxing style, he could be hard work for Ricky Hatton.

No matter which way the fight goes, i think it will be a tough fight for both fighters. Personally I am a Ricky Hatton fan, so i hope he wins, and wins in style. But i must say, i think if Ricky Hatton does lose to Paulie Malignaggi, he will retire.

I hope Ricky Hatton hasn't jinxed himself by talking bad about Paulie Malignaggi,not in this press conference but at an earlier interview. The only other time he has talked bad about another fighter was the match up with Floyd Mayweather Junior, and look what happened then..

I hope im wrong..Good luck Hitman.

Here is what Ricky Hatton had to say at the Press Conference. Ricky Hattons a great fighter and a great guy.
