title Why Hatton Must Fight Amir Khan

By Jason Kim: Ricky Hatton’s career is in shambles at this point with his 2nd round knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao. I don’t suspect that Hatton is going to retire, because he won’t want to go out of boxing with the kind of defeat that he suffered against Pacquiao. And I don’t think that Hatton is going to be satisfied by a fight against Michael Katsidis or some other beatable opponent that is trotted out for Hatton to get his confidence back.

title Hatton vs. the Best Light Welterweights in the World

By Scott Gilfoid: We now know that Ricky Hatton wasn’t in the same league as Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr., both of whom took Hatton out without too much fuss.
