Ricky Hatton Vs Juan Manuel Marquez Fight Rumors
There are rumors going around that Ricky Hatton is making a comeback to the ring..These rumors are from a reliable source, Niall Hickman, the writer of a Ricky Hatton autobiography. This fight between Ricky Hatton and Juan Manuel Marquez is expected to take place in the summer of 2010 in Manchester, UK. This is quite a good match up on paper because both fighters have lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr, and both fighters have also lost to Mr unstoppable - Manny Pacquiao. Although Juan Manuel Marquez did much much better in his fights with the pacman, and i must add that in the second fight Marquez had with Pacquiao i thought Marquez won.
Is this a good move for Ricky Hatton, jumping in with a guy as experienced as Juan Manuel Marquez, after having such a long period out of the ring, and getting knocked out in his last fight. I think it's a big risk. One other concern for Ricky Hatton is the way he looks at the moment, you can see he has not been keeping in shape. He looks very overweight. It's not good to live the way he lives when he's not fighting, ballooning up to heavyweight, then back down to light welterweight.
Ricky Hatton needs to live in the gym from now until the fight to stand any chance at all against Marquez. I do beleive Ricky is damaged goods, the way he got knocked out in his last fight with Manny Pacquiao was brutal, and not good for him mentally. I fear he could get the same type of fight with Marquez, if he's not careful he could get knocked out again. I was watching an interview with Ricky Hatton the other day and he said that he thought he was winning the second round against Manny Pacquiao until the knockout! He must be living in dreamland...I also remember him saying the same thing about his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. He actually thought he was winning most of the fight! I am a Ricky Hatton fan but let's be real..There is no way he was winning the fight with Floyd, and no way he was winning that second round against Pacquiao.
Credit where it's due, Hatton has had a good boxing career, and his only losses have come to the two best boxers in the sport today. But personally i would like him to stay retired, more for his safety. He is, and always will be a "jump in head first brawler" type of boxer, this style will only get you so far. This is the boxing style for a short boxing career because you take way too many punches to the head.
Ricky Hatton has already took too many punches, and we seen how long his "new boxing style" lasted when under the coaching of Floyd Mayweather Sr. It lasted for one fight, that being the fight with Paulie Mallignaggi. After that he went back to his old self again. But i suppose Ricky is his own man, if he wants to fight again then he's going to fight again. I wish him luck.
No one knows if this fight is certain to take place yet. So no one knows who will train Ricky Hatton if the fight should take place. I would say though it would probably be the same trainers as his brother Matthew, which is Lee Beard and his team.
Ricky Hatton Vs Juan Manuel Marquez should be an OK fight. But it's not a fight to go crazy for.
Let me know what you think...Should Ricky Hatton fight again or stay retired. Was Juan Manuel Marquez a good opponent for Ricky to face?
