Apparently, Cotto can't fight Hatton yet due to contractual obligations:

Looks like it might be Corrales in Cardiff:

Don't worry about that they also so he's 26....

DOB 29/10/80 mmmm 24

The money the fight would produce normally helps to find ways.

So I guess the next fight in the division is the one on my
wedding night...Gatti v Mayweather, which me and the future 'trouble and strife' are still in talks as to when to see it...

This will plan the future I believe, decisions will be made after this night
but which? what? opinions?????

My opinion.. the winner will be too pissed to see Hattons name at the
top and want to sort it out.

Decider....., a big money match in the states.

Strange choice of fight for me - I think a victory would be a real springboard for him as the US fans could take to his toe-to-toe style extremely well.
I think Saturday should be a tough fight for him, though the bookies make him a 1/5 shot.

I'd fancy Ricky to beat anyone on the night - If he comes throughthis one I think he has the world at his feet - Americans already know about Ricky as he has fough t in the states before and they have covered his fights on TV before - as for the betting the Yanks always favour their man which makes it all the more sweeter beating them!!!!!!!!!

No, hatton is a 1/5 shot with british bookies.
I hope he wins - I'd love to see him fight in vegas some day and that could be his next stop if he wins at the weekend, though I know he wants to fight at the gardens.

I too really hope he can do something in Vegas.

Lucky boy in my opinion.
won by 3 rounds on 2 cards and 1 on another, but personally I didn't think he'd done enough.
Whether it was because he was fighting a southpaw or a bigger man than usual he just didn't seem to be his normal energy packed self - not as many hooks to the body as we've come to expect.
His reputation got him through imo - draw would have been a fair result.

The last round was a bit hairy too - he was def very shaken - i thought colazo was a pretty useful tool to be honest.
