Ricky Hatton gets Blasted by Frank Warren

In a recent column by Promoter Frank Warren which was published by the Sun, Warren blasts Hatton for not having a decent fight since he fought Kostya Tszyu.

In regards to Hatton, Warren wrote in his column: "The terrific movement and boxing skills that helped him get to the top have disappeared, possibly for good."

Warren went on to add what he feels is the real reason for the decline, stating: "Yet the real reason for his decline is Hatton can no longer avoid punches and is walking on to punches far too often."

Warren was not the least bit impressed with Hatton's victory last month over Juan Lazcano. "Quite simply, he is not the same fighter any more. After the Lazcano fight, his banged-up face made him look the loser, " said Warren, who went on to add: "Hatton came into the ring wearing a fat suit as a jibe at all the critics who have taken issue with his weight gain between fights. It is all very well being one of the lads but his lifestyle confirms its toll on his career."
