I just wondered what posters think about Ricky Hatton's decision to box again.

I loved watching Ricky fight, he was a real cracker-jack and never took a backward step but I think this is a mistake. I know he's had a bit of trouble over drugs but for me that hasn't tarnished his good name. I just don't want him to end up taking a lot of punishment and end up some embittered old Pug.

What do you think Hitman?

Oh dear Ricky, a brave try, surely it must be the end of the road now.

Ricky in happier times.

He had an amazing 15yr career and i was fortunate enough

to be there for the last 10 years,

from Manchester to London to Las Vegas

ive seen him win World Titles and was there for his first loss to his last'

its been 1 amazing journey and loved every minute of it but,

He was a shadow of his former self lastnight.

And all good things must come to and End

and this is it!

As to your Question Pugwash'
Ricky had no option but to take this fight'
as he called it
He Retired at the wrong time'
We knew it and he knew it
so lastnight was his Redemption song'
and unfortunatly he realised he hadnt got it anymore.
i was making excuses lastnight
eg.. Ring Rusty, The crowed got to to him
as the atmosphere was electric, he tried to hard.
But waking up and looking at reality
he hasnt got it anymore, that wasnt the Ricky we all know and love in there lastnight
said ''with a tear in my eye''
so as the final whistle goes
its deffenatly

It`s been a great career for the lad,but like all footballers there`s only so many games (fights in this instance) in them,and this surely has to be the end. It`s very sad when it happens,but that`s life. If he`s squandered his money like a lot of fighters do,that`s his fault,but you`d have to think he`s still better off than most people who live in the Greater Manchester area,so Ricky,it`s time to take stock and move on.

He hasn't squandered his money DIddy'
He's got more money than he ever has, with his promotion company.
This fight was about Redemption.
And Wether he still has it'
And the fight proved unfortunatly he hasn't
