Ricky Hatton Wants To Fight Malignaggi At The MSG

“I thought Paulie’s fight with Cano was very close, but I thought he won the fight and 114-113 was probably about right. If I get the performance I’m expecting against Senchenko on November 24th at the Manchester Arena, then I’d love the chance to fight Paulie again either at Madison Square Garden or the new arena in Brooklyn. The New York boxing fans and the ‘Hitman Barmy Army’ from the UK would make the Big Apple bounce,” stated Ricky Hatton in his latest interview.

I imagine that a rematch between Ricky and Paulie would be a huge hit at the MSG, and would undoubtedly fill the arena in no-time. Ever since 2008 boxing fans have been talking about that fight and how another bout would be good to see. Well now that Hatton is making what seems to be a very determined comeback, their rematch could come to fruition sooner rather than later.

All this is assuming that Hatton will come out victorious in his next fight, which by the way, is unlikely to be a walk in the park. Nevertheless, the chances are in favor of Hatton getting the job done, and if he is able to get past Malignaggi, his road back to the top could be a lot shorter than most, including himself had expected.
