I say no. He is getting a lot of flack from both sides of the pond in the media right now regarding his sub-par performance. They are also discussing a pattern of holding and clinching that seems to be developing that they don't like the looks of either.tyson said:is ricky hattons future as bright as it should be or once was?
kostya tzsyu had great credability and is a legend and future HOFer, hatton destroyed him.White Tyson said:Sooner or later... Hatton's gonna run into somebody of great credibility and lose convincingly... and that could almost be the beginning of the end for the Brit!!!
Tzsyu was done when Hatton fought him. Tzsyu in his prime would not have lost to Hatton. Proof being that Tzsyu has done nothing since the loss.tommygunn said:kostya tzsyu had great credability and is a legend and future HOFer, hatton destroyed him.
kostya wasn't done when hatton fought him he was the reigning champ and had just beaten both zab and sharmba. and the reason he hasn't fought since hatton is he had a very bad injury which has just healed up, there's talk of kostya returning at 147 according to fightnews.Jetcar said:Tzsyu was done when Hatton fought him.

Hatton is very one-dimensional, albeit a firecracker in the ring with a crowd pleasing style as a brawler who is always moving forward.
As I mentioned in my post above, he's developing a frightening pattern of holding and clinching that won't win him any fans, or further attract any big time contracts when his next fight is up with HBO.
hatton always has very very tough fights thats why he's such a fans fav, the urango showing was a landslide victory for him and i for one hope he can get the fights with cotto, mayweather and corrales. by the way arum had a very good offer to unify the belts when both these guy's were champs and he refused it flat claiming cotto was still too green, hell maybe he's still too green because he aint improved any since then.prettyboywho said:Hattons furure does not look good. He is weak in the body. Castillo could kill his body and so could Cotto. Now that he is exposed look forward to him having very very tough fights.
one of my first posts stated that i wasn't happy with the showing.Jetcar said:Tommy, you're doing a good job of ignoring everyone's comments regarding Hatton's clinching style, and the fact that it's not just the members here saying, but also the media and the HBO commentators. :laugh:
