Very much like Klitschko and AJ then, which automatically makes Fury's win over Klitschko better, you massive fucking whopper.
Like Fury, Hatton was partial to shovelling mounds of coke up his honker and pretending to be a man of the people

Flawed individual? Yes.

Like Tyson Fury, he never pretended to be otherwise and thats what made him a man of the people...

There are 4 votes.

2 of them are Matchroom fanboys who wont support anybody who isnt/wasnt promoted by their hero.
The forum baffles me at times, I genuinely don't know why people care who promotes fights, it's like people have to choose Warren or hearn, Joshua or fury etc, be far better off if people just enjoyed boxing for boxing

I liked Ricky. He was never a favourite of mine or anything, but I liked him.

I remember seeing him in one of his first fights, way down the bill on a sky sports card. Can't remember the fight, or the card, just remember seeing this pasty kid with crap hair, but you could tell he had what it took to be a world champ.

You could say he pissed his physical prime up the wall, but maybe that character is also what drove him to succeed. It certainly drove his popularity.

Have heard Jamie Moore speak well of him. They fought as kids and ricky, who was much more experienced, stopped him, but gave him loads of encouragement, and told him he had talent.

I voted not like but it's more that i just wasn't that big of a fan, i bet on Floyd and Pac to KO him, i thought he lost vs Collazo close but he got battered in a few rounds, his whole run at 147 was pretty poor, looked a shadow of his former self. He was a top fighter at 140 though but it's a shame he missed out on a few of the bigger names at the time at 140, his resume always looks a bit light to me.

He had some fun fights, he had a good career but i never was a supporter.

Started off as fan but pretty quickly got fed up of his fat fucking up between fights and unprofessional attitude at times.Maybe very fickle but that's the way i am.

Took great pleasure in the latter stages,obviously Mayweather and Manny were both superb and again his delusion post fights made me even more anti.The whole,"winning by a country mile" shit was retarded at best.

Not taking away what he achieved and the feel good he created for British boxing at the time but just not my cup of tea.
