Hatton Vs Khan?

leave a comment »

Last week when Ricky Hatton announced he would be making a comeback to boxing I thought he would probably fight some mid level fighter go out on a win and ride off into the sunset. Yet things at 140 pounds have just spiced up for him.

Yesterday (Sunday) Amir Khan announced he had signed a 3 fight deal with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. Now this could mean that the much touted British super fight between Khan and Hatton could actually take place.

Hatton had vowed to never work with his and Khan’s former promoter Frank Warren again so now Khan is promoted by Golden Boy, who also promote him, a deal between him and the WBA 140 pound champion could take place.

Khan is on somewhat of a hot streak at the moment with 4 wins on the bounce the last being a 76 second destruction of Dimitry Salita whilst Hatton has not fought since being iced by Manny Pacquiao last May.

If the fight was to take place, I personally think Hatton would need a tune up rather than jump straight into the fight which would mean he would fight more than the 1 time he had looked to.

Either way Khan has a good number of mid to top level fighter gunning for him so expect to see some solid fights in the 3 fight deal he has signed with GBP.
