Promoter Dennis Hobson says a fight between Arturo Gatti and Matthew Hatton (30-3-1), brother of jr welterweight superstar Ricky Hatton, is close to being finalized. "Gatti's people are definitely interested in the fight and I have told them if they want to fight Ricky they have got to get through Matthew first," Hobson told PA Sport. "Matthew is coming out of Ricky's shadow and he is ready for this fight."

That's whats up. I think I might head out there if time permits. :thumbsup:

Only thing is, I know nothing about Matthew Hatton. Is he a B/C grade fighter?

Gatti vs Hatton? Denied!
UPDATE: "There is absolutely no truth to what Dennis Hobson has said regarding Arturo and Matthew Hatton. It is a complete fabrication." --Donald Tremblay/Main Events

ricky hatton speaking today to sky sports:

ricky hatton feels his brother matthew would be more than a match for arturo gatti if the planned bout against the legendary fighter goes ahead.

the ibf champ, who is also matthews manager, beleives his brother is capable of producing an impressive victory over the canadian legend.

hatton said, "arturo gattis team have been in touch and we've accepted the fight. we're waiting to hear from them.

"i think this would be a great fight for matthew and its not beyond doable, arturo has a lot of fights under his belt while i think my brother is just reaching his best."

ricky was expected to fight gatti himself, but these plans were shelved after the canadian was defeated by carlos baldomir.

hatton said. "im not jelous, im not jelous at all. i lost the chance to fight gatti - i think if he had beaten baldomir then i would have fought him.

But Hatton will absolutely destroy Arturo Gatti. I will watch this one because I love seeing Gatti beat until his eyes close. :)

Floyd must have beaten Gatti retarted. He wants COTTO? First of all that would be pointless for Miguel and Arturo's insides would look like his face did after PBF ate his lunch.
