| Oscar De La Hoya vs Ricky Hatton - Hatton speaks out...

By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - No, the fight is not happening, but you may recall sometime back the rumblings of a Ricky Hatton vs. Oscar De La
Hoya match-up for the venue of Wembley Stadium. The time these reports
/ rumors came out, Hatton had yet to announce his official retirement
In a recent interview with Gareth A. Davies (a
scribe always worth the read) of the Telegraph (UK), "Hitman" Hatton confirmed to
the publication that there was actual talk with Oscar De La Hoya's side over a
fight at Wembley Stadium. These talks came around about 18 months after
Hatton had lost to Manny Pacquiao.
In regards to a fight with De
La Hoya at Wembley Stadium, Hatton told Davies: "We talked about that
fight and I was really tempted because I know we could have sold the
place out twice over, but deep inside, hard as it was for me to admit, I
knew my career was over."
Ok, so the time for this fight to have
happened is now long past its time and certainly mute, but it would
have been something! You know British fans would have packed the house
and it would have been a memorable night and a huge money-maker. That being said, I think the
retirement path that both De La Hoya and Hatton picked was the
right path for both of these living legends.
