TARK

Reading skills??? I read a 1000 words a minute. You have no analyzing skills… That’s why you were wrong on Cloud-Johnson… Wrong on Cintron-Alvarez going the distance… Wrong on Couture-Toney… You lie about it. That just means you’re a poor picker and a liar.

Nope. I only predicted the Fight for the WINNERS. But you need both eyes checked and I THANK you for letting ME know that your reading SKILLS are POOR. That’s a SHAME SHAME SHAME.

Nope… You’re lying again Boxtradamus.. You picked Bute to win over Froch.. Johnson didn’t hammer Cloud’s eye’s shut, which ALWAYS means a stoppage.. No doctor or referee is going to let somebody fight who can’t see—so you would have claimed victory if Johnson won.. You picked Toney to beat Couture very vociferously, and with several posts.. You picked Cintron to lose by decision to Alvarez, which is a bet anyone can play.. I said he would get pounded and stopped easily and I was right. And right on all of them.

Boxtradamus

GOOD try TARK. I picked Froch to not get stopped, I took Johnson to hammer Clouds eyes shut, and I took Garcia to defeat Khan. SO you could only name 3 Fights where I predicted that the LOSER would WIN. Well I can name 19 Fights where I was CORRECT to every one that YOU can name that I got wrong. SO my 95% WINNING % stays INTACT.

“Boxy did say Hatton would get stopped.”-Goosey THANK you for your honesty. I guess there ARE more TRUTH tellers than just MYSELF.

Yes, that was an insane amount of weight to have to lose – let alone lose quickly. Ricky needed to take several easier opponents as this fight proved.

Even a broken watch is right twice a day… There’re 2 boxers in a fight so you have to hit some.. Box picked Bute to beat Froch.. Johnson to beat Cloud… Khan to beat Garcia… Campbell to beat Ortiz… Berto to beat Ortiz… Williams to beat Martinez II… Toney to beat Couture… Cintron to go limit with Alvarez.. A high % of your picks where you can get betting odds go south, so you would be paying up frequently if you actually bet.

“You also predicted Berto would win… So you’re a phony and a braggart Box.”-Nope. I never predicted Berto to WIN. I predicted Guerrero to WIN from day ONE. SO I’m a TRUTH teller, a FACT stater, the GREATEST Fight Prophet, and a Celebrator…….I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!

Rigsby.. I thought it was strange they were’nt seen. Not ideal for his frame of mind. As i said, crazy throwing him in at that level and all the pressures of an event of that size

I SAID that Senchenko would stop Hatton and I was CORRECT. I also predicted that Guerrero would out point Berto and I was CORRECT yet again!! I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!!

Another ex world champ Scott Harrison made his comback over 6 rounds i think it was. His father would’nt have dreamed of throwing him in any deeper. Scott Harrison was a bonafide world champ and a hard Bas/tard into the bargin. I cant beleive Hattons comback was handled in this way. They fckt it up big time. Would warren have did this?/ not a chance

Another thing, maybe it was just me but did any of you guys see much of his Father or brother in the build up?? I have the feeling that they would’nt be to happy about the comback

@ LEFTHOOK, i dont think your far from the truth there, but iam sure Hatton didnt need much persuading….

More like greedy backround guys having him run before he could walk. Why not a 6-8 rounder as near enough all guys would have done. No they wanted a sell out n ppv

Just as I suspected would happen.Ricky Hatton lost so much weight in such a short period of time,he looked fit, but his body was still in shock from the weight loss. Ricky should have taken on a what you call at least 1 tune up fight with a top 75-100 fighter maybe 2 and kept his weight in check and in about a year he would have beaten this guy. Oh well what can you say.

Sad for Ricky Hatton as he did a good job in the ring and deserves credit for taking on such a good opponent as an former world title holder right away after coming out of retirement. I feel Hatton has something left in the tank but he needs to take on low risks for a while so he can rebuild himself but if he now retires, then I wish him the best.

I feel sorry for Senchenko here. Everyone thought it was going to be a foregone conclusion & MSG was vertually booked for Hatton/Malignaggi II. So what happens now? Can we expect Senchenko/Malignaggi II? I very much doubt it. Unfortunatlly Senchenko just hasn’t got the name to ca$h in outside of “Belarus”? (Which is his managements fault for not showcasing him overseas before). Kell Brook fights Devon Alexander for the IBF title soon, while Guerrero just beat Berto for the WBC interim title, so can we look forward to unifications so as to find out who’s #1 @ 147Lb in the World? Again I doubt it.

Anon…. The biggest difference between Foreman and Hatton is the mental aspect.. Foreman never gave up until he was successful in his comeback.. He never cried.. It would have been easy for Foreman to quit after the Holyfield or Morrison losses—because he had boat loads of money.. Hatton started well and was ahead in this fight.. Then he just went off the rails.. HIs form fell apart and he stopped jabbing.. He threw wild punches and was way over anxious.. If he didn’t have speed, power, and smarts I would say hang ‘em up… But he does.. He can do one HELL of a lot better than he did in this fight. I hate to see talent go to waste … It often does of course.

Hopefully Hatton can stay clean during retirement. It’s not good for him to get bored. Plus he goes off the deep end when he loses. I wish him well.

Plus Foreman wasnt in a very deep div. at the time it was decent but thats it.Hatton has alot of young hungry kids with talent sniffing around this weight class.And as a x-champ if he cant get back a title why hang around and fight medicore fighters…why once on top now stay around for smaller potatoes it dosent make sence.Hatton seems like a proud guy if he cant get the big wins he wouldnt waste his time…and I dont feel hes able anymore to pull that off…dwc

Comparing Foreman to Hatton is like apple to oranges.Foreman could adopt that style in the hvwt. div. and pace himself with that cross-arm defence with little movement not using much energy.Foreman could still take a big shot in his old age.Hatton fighting in a light div. needs more speed quicker reflects and a style that uses more wind.Plus Foreman although in wars himself didnt drink and drug like Hatton did over time.Hatton needs to retire..always liked him a gutsy champ but he will not get better or even get to the level he was on.

I’ll second that Mark… Foreman lost 2 comeback fights and was getting his tail kicked in during a 3rd title shot when he finally hit pay dirt.. He was 38 when he embarked on his comeback and did have success until he was 45. You keep going.. If you’re ahead on the sorecards with one (1) round to go, to a recent world champion who’s lost only once in 30 odd fights, and you haven’t fought in 43 months??? That shouldn’t be a cause for extreme sadness to the point you want to end it all..

Buck up, go back to the drawing board, and fight better next time.. Off this fight you have a ton of stuff to work on that you can do much better in your next fight.. For one thing, bring in a new chief second because he was no help when you started going sideways.

Killing Moon The Soothsayer

LMAO…..Any people who saw Hatton winning every round where drunk or simply know nothing about boxing…That’s the truth, you do not win just by going forward and miss….Senchenko countered him every time he missed while going backwards….You guys should seriously rewatch the fight (look at Hatton’s mug ffs) I wouldn’t be surprised if Senchenko connected 3 times everytime Hatton got 1 in…..And to listen to delusional brit commentators and Malignaggi lying through their teeth….was embarassing for you…I really believe they would have robbed Senchenko had Hatton stayed up for 4:30 mins….Which would have been a freakin Robbery…Sorry, I have respect for Hatton..But it was good for boxing he was stopped.

I said the day he announced his unretirement this comeback would go badly. Snorting rails, drinking and partying all night took as much out of Hatton as any punch. Speaking of that, wonder where the Manchester Giant is. Hatton KOed last night, Manchester City held to 0-0 draw with Chelsea today. Bad weekend for Manchester sport and nobody to talk shiat to. Not that I’m gloating over Hatton’s loss. I always liked him.

I do like Hatton. However, he needs to stop feeling sorry for himself. He has made millions and millions and achieved loads as a boxer. I don’t think I can take any more of his ‘depression’ about how hard his life is and his inner demons!

My heart went out to Ricky last night. That classic pressure style never ends pretty..or is it long lasting. But what a champ he was back in the day

Don’t retire try a rematch.

I was enthralled by the British sense of sportsmanship…They booed when Senchenko came in,when he was announced,when he won they booed louder….Hatton never congratulated him or even acknowledged his win….it was all about him and his defeat…

It was a fools-errand as soon as his comeback was announced. He should of stayed retired.

I’ve see the Hatton fight a few times and although I know Hatton put everything into it, I saw him winning every round. I think he should re-consider and instead of trying to take on a great opponent, lower his oppositional level and start beating up the younger or older guys. Tonight he showed a lot of heart and again, I thought he looked pretty good. There is really no defense to a liver shot .. there’s no way you can” tuffen up” that part of the body. In the last round, both guys were hanging on to each other, it wasn’t a planned shot, but to me, a lucky one. Hang in there Ricky
He’s disappointed now and emotionally hurt but maybe after a few days( or perhaps weeks ) he’ll reconsider. he had much more than I thought he would … I was impressed … PEACE

I feel good for Hatton, this dose of reality will now set his mind to rest….You got stopped,live with it……Now get your life right,it’s not in the ring anymore….Enjoy what you have and what you are going to have with your son and wife,you have more years in front of you than behind, embrace them and show the world how a true champ retires and appreciates his gifts……….

yeah charlo is a pretty good boxer he tall with good reach and pretty good power him and keith will be a good matchup but keith could be to strong for him tho but i wouldn count charlo out tho he got good skills a fight that i alway wanted to see is keith thurman and brad soliman

Posted November 25, 2012 12:28 pm 


KOrnerman

Thurman looked viscous, a real force to be reckoned with, id pick him to smoke Charlo in 6 rounds.

Posted November 25, 2012 11:49 am 


Mick the Marmalizer

Regarding Thurman: How about matching him with Jemell Charlo who also fought on the bill last night? Both are undefeated in 19 fights, so someones 0 would have to go.

Hatton didnt look bad in this fight considering what hes been through the past 3 and a half years. Senchenko is a legit fighter, had Ricky took an easier opponent he would have won lastnight and been fighting Mallinagi next. I feel bad for Hatton, just one more round and he would have got a close decision.

Posted November 25, 2012 11:16 am 


Mick the Marmalizer

I’d like to see Thurman fight in Europe or the UK. How about matching him with Rabchenko?

Posted November 25, 2012 10:26 am 


Mick the Marmalizer

Plenty of interest @ 147Lb at the momment what with Senchenko taking out Hatton & Guerrero beating Berto. Kell Brook fights Devon Alexander in a couple of months, so how about some unification? IE- Timothy Bradley vs Guerrero & Brook/Alexander vs Malignaggi after Malignaggi/Senchenko II.

I disagree with the writer; Hatton didn’t dominate the fight. He looked good earlier on but run out of gas from rd 6. This was when Senchenko started to take over the fight. Hatton may be been ahead, due to fighting on homes soil. Personally, I had the fight even after 8. Also, Hatton’s timing was way off and to say that he never looked like he was out for over 3 years is a joke.

Posted November 25, 2012 6:15 am 


Bobby Balboa

That has to be the end now for Hatton. He was winning the fight & if it went the distance he could have nicked it on points but at the end of the day he was taken out with a crushing shot. He can hold his head up high as he’s had a great career & he didn’t take an easy fight for his comeback but I just hope that he saves himself anymore heartache and decides that it’s the end now.

Lets hope he doesn’t decline mentally after this fight which will be a big ask but every fighter comes to an end one day & it’s a sad reality that Ricky must now realise.
