At long last former boxing punch bag ‘The Fatman’ Ricky Hatton quits and lifts himself off the ring floor to find that the reality he leaves behind is a visual legacy of his last fight, which ended with Hatton poleaxed on his back when he was demolished by Manny Pacquiao. For Hatton having the temerity to admit that this is how he will be best remembered is admirable.
After years spent training and studying to reach the heights of Marquess of Queensberry rules his magna cum laude is impressive and includes but is not limited to – Loser – Alcoholic – Cocaine Snorter and now he bows out with his final degree - horizontal on the canvas to Pacquiao.
His Career Palmares we use a cycling term here as opponents treated Hatton as nothing more than a ride to be passed on the way to the top. Anyway back to the Hatton Profile
• Mouth – Loud – prone to race off with gibberish and nonsense
• Chin – Glass if it was not so big and prominent could have been augmented into a piece of fine china
• Punching Power – Proved that when he stepped up to Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao, against these guys he could not ‘punch his way out of a paper bag’
• Body – Podgy drug fueled ale cart style physique
• Legs - Often wobbly due to GAD
A plus thanks to his mouth racing off and astute financial management Ricky Hatton is reported to have massed a fortune of more than £30 Million UK Pounds - $49 Million US Dollars!
So that is that - Ricky Hatton Admits Defeat His Legacy is Horizontal on the Canvas - Fatman Hatton Quits His Legacy Intact - Horizontal on the Canvas to Pacquiao
Meanwhile Manny Pacquiao is the best pound for pound boxer in the world …
