Witter Challenges Hatton - "Fight Me or Quit"

27.09.06 - Junior Witter, Bradfordís newly crowned WBC light welterweight titleholder, has called on Ricky Hatton to stop making excuses, put his titleís on the table and step in the ring.

Speaking on Bradfordís The Pulse radio station, Witter said: ďCan I batter Ricky Hatton? Yeah. Itís a fight I want. Itís a fight the boxing public deserve. Itís just a case that Ricky Hatton just doesnít seem to want it at the minute. Heís come up with every excuse under the sun. Before I had the world title he kept saying itís because I havenít got a world title. Now I have a world title heís saying itís about people he wants to fight, not titles.

ďHeís constantly changing his excuses. First it was Frank Warren didnít want to do it. Now heís his own promoter he said TV werenít interested. Sky are interested. HBO are interested. Showtime are interested. They will all do it..

ďHeís now turned around and found another excuse. Itís a case of one day heíll have nowhere left to run. Heíll have to fight me or retire. If Hatton wonít fight me then there are other champions out there that I need to get rid of as well.

When asked why Hatton wouldnít want to fight him, Witter said: ďWhen youíre a good talent and slightly awkward, I can make people look bad as well as beat them up. Itís an unfortunate fact that a lot of people donít want to box me.Ē
