Ricky Hatton won my respect when he stopped Kosta Tsuzyu.  Ricky Hatton held his own for a couple of rounds with the pound for pound king, Floyd Mayweather, he struggled against Louis Collazo, and frankly I don’t believe he could stop Cotto or Mosley. However despite my misgivings about the Hitmans fight game, Ricky Hatton is a delight and beautiful fighter to watch .

You can count on Ricky Hatton coming to fight, Ricky does not come to dance and his style makes for valiant fights. Disrespect the Hitmans fight game and you will pay in the ring .The pride of Manchester has maybe the most faithful throng of boxing fans. All that  being said, the Pacman is a tad too fast and can take a punch.

The advantages for the hitman are his knack for not taking rounds off, his ability to mount sustaining pressure during the fight .The Hitman is naturally the bigger fighter and packs pretty good power in both hands .The knocks on the Hitman are he is susceptible to taking a lot of punches and if he doesn’t tighten his defense the Pacman is going to douse him with a lot of one-twos . May the best man win, I see the Sunday morning headlines reading Pacman gobbles the Hitman.
