Ricky Hatton: “Rabchenko can win over the Aussies like I did”

RICKY HATTON sees some similarities between his epic clash with Kostya Tsyzu nine years ago and Sergey Rabchenko’s dust up with Anthony Mundine.
 
The Hitman was relentless as he upset the odds by forcing the Aussie legend to quit on his stool after 11 rounds in front a raucous Mancunian crowd at the MEN Arena in June 2005.
 
It was a result that naturally fans Down Under were disappointed with, but oddly many came to love Hatton’s all-action style and laid back attitude and he feels Rabchenko can manage a similar feat at the Hisense Arena in Sydney on November 12.

Ricky Hatton and Kostya Tszyu reunited

Nearly a decade later both boxers still have immense respect for each other and warmly embraced when they met up at press conference in Sydney to promote the upcoming fight between Hatton’s fighter Sergey Rabchenko and former three-time world champion Anthony Mundine.
