Kind of Odd how quickly Ricky Hatton has gone from being a cult hero to becoming just another ex-fighter. His star dimmed quicker then I expected.

Not a huge fan tbh, I didn't mind him coming up but his stardom far exceeded his talent.

Tzsyu was a good win but overrated, Tszyu was at the end of his career and subject to a mugging in hattons living room.

His fights with urango and collazo showed glaring holes and collazo I thought shaded him.

He did ok Vs Mayweather for a handful of rounds before being outclassed and a rare stoppage victim.

Saved by the ref Vs lazscano

Beat Paulie fair enough

Destroyed by PAC.

Loads of names missing on his resume, Cotto, Witter, Bradley, khan, Alexander, I could name more.

But yeah not a fan tbh

Yeah I like him. Probably moreso now than when he was fighting tbh.

The ever-lovely Mrs Templar and I are big Ricky fans, went to a few of his fights - Tszyu, Mauser and another one I don't recall off hand.

Also just saw in the 'votes cast' section that Hkbrit has voted against Ricky. Further endorsement of my view that Ricky is one of the good ones. Sure, he made the odd mistake, but don't we all?

Good fighter but never warmed to him, him being a city fan didn't help. He didn't face a murderous row at 140, Tszyu is a very good win but apart from that and him looking awful at 147, for me he is a tad bit overrated.

140 got hot when he left with Bradley,Khan,Alexander,Maidana,Lucas,Kotelnik,PEDerson, Ortiz,Danny, wound have been interesting seeing him in with these guys.

Over rated in my book, was never impressed and while he had a couple of ok wins, he never beat any real great fighters. Tszyu was past it and retired straight away after the loss to Hatton.

He used to live a couple of doors away from a mate of mine. Nice bloke, down to earth & humble, you'd see him in the local pubs enjoying a pint or ten! The way he used to blow up in weight between fights though probably took a big toll on his career. Glad he's beat his demons & is still involved in boxing.
