I’ll be sure to watch it. Hatton is rarely in dull fight, so it’s usually worth a look.

I was never a fan of Hatton with his mauling/brawling style, but I wish him well. Because I’m afraid he’s taking on too much, too quick. He’s 34 now, not the young 20 something — I fear he’s going to find out that his former abusive life + the two brutal losses/knockouts have taken their toll after one of these younger, fresher fighters put the hit on the hitman.

The risk here is that Hattons ego is built on repeating that he only ever lost to the p4p no1//2 fighters. While that is true, he has also looked less than stellar vs people nowehere near that good. He at one point seemed to have an uncrackable chin, and yet it was hist first move up to WW vs Collazo that showed that wasn`t the case, where although I agree with Hatton winning a close decision, he was in call kinds of trouble in the 12th. After that fight people seemed to fbe able to hurt him more consistently – and even vs Lazcano there was a degree of trepidation. The sole light for Hatton here is that I`d prefer to see him making a comeback than De La Hoya. Pac beat DLH into being gunshy, and he looked shot. Although Pac laid HAtton out in a scary manner it wasn`t because Hattons skills had diminshed or his fitness gone, it was because he’s an easy to find pressure fighter walking into the biggest puncher he`ll ever meet.

I think Hatton could actually squeak wins out vs Sencheenko and Malignaggi, but it is just picking the low hanging fruit, neither guy is considered top 5 in the division – maybe not even top 10 if you are being mean, and Hatton has already got a WW title on his wall, alongside Paulie’s scalp (complete with ridiculous hairdo) anyway.

Hatton is going to embarass himself during this comeback at some point… The guy has abused his body for years and now he is coming back at 34…It did not go well for Sugar Ray Leonard, I am not about to bet on Hatton being able to compete over time… The worst thing that can happen is him booking a win and thinking “I’m back” before some name fighter gets him in there for a payday and he ends up looking like Erik Morales, splayed thru the ropes and confused…. Boxing is a CRUEL sport when you are washed up….

KO KIDD

I think this is too tough a fight for his return, not calling Senchenko a world beater but Hatton has been out a while and is at 147 a weight he was never that comfortable at, I think he should have taken a domestic level journeyman but i doubt he could fill a stadium or get a big fight against a bum so he is taking a big risk, maybe im wrong and Hatton takes this guy out
