'Boxing addict' Tszyu back with old foe Hatton
AAP November 2, 2014 Reunited with famous foe Ricky Hatton after nine years, Kostya Tszyu wants to put boxing behind him, but says it’s an impossible task.
Tszyu and Hatton hugged and mugged for the cameras in Sydney on Saturday in their first meeting since the Briton dethroned the Russian-born Australian in an epic light welterweight world title bout in Manchester in 2005.

The mutual respect they showed in their gracious post-fight interviews was evident again.

“He’s a nice guy and gentleman,” Hatton said.

“As tough as that fight was, once you’ve gone through that together, there’s a bond that will never die.”

You remember that specifically from 2005, do you? :lol:

When did he win the UK, 2006 I think.  2002 was his world title win....

I remember that match?  Was that really 9 years ago?

Ronnie was miles ahead, and shouldn't have let Ebdon's slow play get to him.  Fucking bottler. :D
