Should Hatton fight again on Wed 24-Jun-2009:

I think Hatton will fight again, he is still young and i am sure he would like to go out with a win in his home town of Manchester England. There is no shame losing to Mayweather and Pacquiao although he was probably surprised by the knockout defeat at the hands of Pacquiao. Every fighters time comes, and he has had a great career from the time he defeated a 35 yr old faded former P4P king Kostya Tszyu to becoming one of the best light welterweights in recent history. His achievements have been impressive and at his age a proper send off in his home town would be in place i believe!

Should Hatton fight again on Wed 6-May-2009:

Sorry Rish but Hatton was in his prime and ready to fight, i saw the weigh in, Hatton looked strong, ready, confident. Manny Pacquio is simply an amazing fighter. Im a Hatton fan and he is still one of the top 10 p4p best in the world, the fact Pacquio destroyed him so quicky is credit to Pacquio and trainer Freddy Roach. I do believe it is time Hatton hung up the gloves, as he always said he would retire at 30, and he has the money and legacy to retire comfortably. Ill never forget the Hatton v Tszyu fight, Ricky truly cemented his legacy that night against the then 35 yr old Russian great, who even though past his prime, gave Ricky one hell of a fight which Ricky won on pure guts and determination.

MaximilianoHe you have no idea. Calzaghe is one of the best super middle weights of all time, why are you even bringing up Chad Dawson? that guy struggled to win a decision over Glen Johnson and can hardly be considered great. You play down his victory over Bernard Hopkins at 43 yrs of age. THE SAME Bernard Hopkins that gave 26 yr old Kelly Pavlik a boxing lesson a few months later. Faded Roy Jones Junior? yes, yet the same Roy Jones that Junior Calzaghe chased for years, and RJJ was coming of a decisive win over Felix Trinidad! plus Calzaghe was 36! Calzaghe destroyed Jeff Lacy in his prime and Lacy has never been the same, he defeated Mikkel Kessler, gave him a boxing lesson, both of which were prime fighters AND undefeated. Calzaghe is 37 and has NOTHING to prove to anyone, especially not the idiotic Amercian boxing public. And what a brilliant boxer he was with a pristine record of 46-0. He is most certainly one of the greatest of all time, and i thank him for some memorable fights. Thank you Joe!

Anthony Mundine on Tue 24-Feb-2009:
I watched with anticipation the Mundine vs Taylor fight and while Mundine scored an easy points win, his performance was hardly impressive. Taylor bullied Mundine around the ring and made Mundine look like a fool, even cowardly. Although Taylor barely threw enough punches to win a round, there is something about Mundine that just isnt right. All criticism aside, Mundine is a damn good athlete, he has beaten Green, Echols, Soliman, yet he fights with too much caution. He DROPPED his WBA title rather than fight a mandatory against Mikkel Kessler, the same fughter that kicked his arse 3 or 4 years ago, and would have most certainly done again. He got knocked down by Yoshizori Nishizawa for crying out loud! He was hardly willing to engage in a fight with Taylor, it reminded me a lot of his last fight with Soliman. If he is satisfied back pedalling and picking off his slower opponents with weak 1, 1-2 combinations so be it. But he certainly isnt exciting at the moment or overly impressive. No one will ever take credit away from him for switching from NRL to pro boxing, but if your going to run your mouth and be a smart arse, back it up, thats what Australian people and fight fans appreciate.

Anthony Mundine on Mon 26-Jan-2009:
Just the other day heard about the Mundine/Taylor fight coming up, a fight that many have been wanting to see but is probably coming a few years too late. Again Mundine has got an opponent well past his prime and began his career as a Junior-Welterweight. The 36 yr old Taylor may provide a spirited challenge for Mundine but again his ageing reflexes wont help him and i see Mundine stopping him in the later rounds, similar to Taylor's failed attempt at the IBO Middleweight title a few years ago. The circus continues, if Mundine was half serious about his career he would be taking on Sakio Bika or Danile Geale for the IBO Middleweight title. Time will tell.

HITMAN V's PACMAN on Tue 20-Jan-2009:
I believe this fight is a fantastic match up and would be much closer than the disappointing De La Hoya/Pacquiao fight. Hatton and Pac Man both really come to fight and i could see the fight being a thriller. With Hattons dominance at 140 lbs it would be hard to bet against a points win in his favour but Pacquiao's hand and foot speed is always going to give him a questionable advantage. However unless the Pac Man agrees to a 50-50 split, the fight could be in jeopardy. Lets hope it happens! Hatton W12

Anthony Mundine on Mon 19-Jan-2009:
Anthony Mundine can be described as a sometimes brilliant boxer with quite a name in Australia but nothing really to back it up on an international scale. While he has beaten some credible names (Danny Green, Antwun Echols, Sam Soliman) he built up his record fighting washed up retired fighters (38 yr old former IBF Super Lightweight Lester Ellis anyone? disgraceful!) and defended his most recent WBA Super Middleweight Title against no name fighters from Argentina whom i cant even name off the top of my head. He then chose to drop the title rather than make a mandatory against Mikkel Kessler, a fighter that made Mundine look terrible a few years back and surely a fighter Mundine would have wanted revenge against. Not the case, he chose to drop a few pounds and make a dash for the WBA middleweight title with Felix Sturm his priority. So far he has put in some pretty poor performances, being knocked down by Crazy Kim in his first middleweight start. My question is if he is legitimate about being the best as he always claims to be why has he not targetted Arthur Abraham or Kelly Pavlik? My gut feeling is Mundine is waiting at his No.1 ranking in the WBA for Sturm to fight a unification with either Pavlik or Abraham leaving Mundine to fight for the WBA 'Regular' Championship much like he did in the past for his other two 'championship' wins.
