Former WBA (Super), IBF & The Ring light welterweight champion and WBA welterweight champion, Ricky Hatton, is the talk of the town at this point in time because as per the reports the Hitman is planning a sensational comeback after a gap of four years.
However, Amir Khan, former IBF and WBA (Super) light welterweight champion, doesn’t see a solid reason behind Hatton’s comeback.
While speaking on his inclusion, the Bolton man, who is more commonly known as King Khan, stated that Hatton proved it all during his time and making a comeback after four years will be very tough for him.
“I don’t think he has to prove anything,” said Khan in his recent interview to Men Media.
Hatton was unbeaten with an incredible record of winning all of his 43 professional fights until he met Floyd Mayweather junior back in 2007.
Hatton continued his journey after tasting his first defeat but his run ended in 2009, when he suffered a brutal second-round knockout at the hands of eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.
Hatton walked away from the sport in depression after losing to Pacquiao but now rumours of his comeback are circulating in the media.
Khan knows why Hatton left the sport and he insisted a fighter should never leave the sport due to a defeat.
He added, “Maybe it’s in the back of his mind after that loss to Manny Pacquiao. You could never leave the sport with a loss like that. What’s the reason he’s doing it? I don’t know – boredom maybe, but losing all that weight and coming back is going to be tough. He won’t know how hard it is for him until he does come back.”
“Boxing is the toughest sport in the world. It is not easy. No one can tell you to quit. Even your family can’t tell you to stop,” added Khan.
Amir Khan lost his WBA title earlier this month to Danny Garcia and now he is looking forward to have a rematch with him.
