There has been talk from Team Hatton that his potential comeback fight will be back down at 140lbs against Paulie Malignaggi, possibly at MSG or could even be in Manchester.

Should Hatton take this fight straight after the defeat to Mayweather? And who do you think will win?

My take:

Malignaggi showed against Cotto he is one tough guy, he can take a good punch and has alot of heart. Malignaggi has a decent jab, has fast hands and is good technically. Hatton may have to turn it into a brawl in order to win, but Malignaggi showed in the fight with Cotto that he can easily be dragged into a brawl. If Hatton rebounds well in this fight, i can see him stopping Malignaggi late on with constant pressure and body punching, but if he is still mentally suffering this could be a tricky fight.

Yes - I think he needs to get back in the ring as soon as possible and get a win.

At 140, he should get the win, and hopefully getting KO'd will drive him even harder!

I hope so too. He sounded very determined in the interviews, saying there's no way hes going out on a loss and that he'll be back.

With Hatton, basically the longer he takes to get back the worse it is. If he takes a long break he piles on the lbs and it makes the comeback harder and harder. Come on Hatton, prove your still the best at 140;) I want Witter or Malignaggi!

Well, he was always determined hehe

I don't think he needs to prove that he's the best at 140 to anyone other than himself now and get a bit more confidence.

I think it would do him a lot of good to stop gaining so much when he is on a break between fights - its not good for a normal person, never mind a professional athlete, but who are we to tell Ricky what to do lol

I too would like to see Ricky straight bk in there at fight Malignaggi. I believe he will get in there, his hearts unquestionable! Hopefully he can take that and then unify v Witter and close his mouth once and for all.

paulys 1000 pitter patter punches a round wont faze ricky one little bit, hatton will breeze through him and force a late stoppage IMO.

i fully expect ricky to come back and dominate at 140, id love to see him shut witter up to davies. :thumbsup:

I'd be more inclined to predict a knockout in his comeback...

If he takes it the right way, Hatton will be an animal in the ring, and should have trained his balls off for it!

I'd expect him to be in the best shape of his career for his next fight, and wouldn't care much to be the guy he's up against!!!

I'm going for a mid fight KO/TKO - about round 8 (ish)

i think pauly will have his hands full with Herman Ngoudjo on jan 5th.

that fight could be close although i do favour pauly to pull out a UD by 3 or 4 rounds.

Hi Leedslad,if this fight comes off,i dont want Joe Cortez as a reff if its in the [email protected] 140lbs i would go for Hatton,long as Joe Cortez has nothing to do with this fight.Malignaggi dose not have many ko on his cv.Hatton should make this fight a war & go on 2 win.

Personally i think hatton should fight witter first in england, then malignaggi at MSG. Its about time ricky fights in his country now. He hasnt thought in england since the maussa fight a few years back. I think he should either fight witter in england or persuade paulie to come over here and fight. Then Retire or try a rematch with matweather in his last fight. At 140 and with a different ref in England

I agree with you Tommy. Pauly doesn't have the kind of power to deter Ricky from coming forward. He also seems to forget about defense at times which isn't good against someone who is punching constantly. I do think it would be a very exciting fight though. I like Pauly's skills.

Hatton vs PM is a great fight. I think it should happen and it should happen at MSG. Bring the Brits to NYC so they can see how fans get down and not the rich Hollywood so called fans in Vegas.
