title Hatton Not Interested in Fighting Khan: Is Ricky Afraid of Amir?

khan45233By William Mackay: Earlier today, Ricky Hatton took the air out of the possibility of him fighting World Boxing Association light welterweight champion Amir Khan by saying “I don’t think I have to beat Amir to prove anything.” Although Hatton didn’t come right out and say so, his lack of interest in coming out and taking on the 22-year-old Khan seems strange and more than a little odd that Hatton wasn’t jumping all over a fight with the younger Khan.
