Witter unsure of Hatton motives
Junior Witter has warned former rival Ricky Hatton that it would be a mistake for him to return to professional boxing.
The 33-year-old retired from the sport in 2009, following his defeat to Manny Pacquiao and vowed never to make a comeback, despite his love for the 'noble art'. However, the Manchester fighter has now scheduled a press conference for Friday where he is expected to announce his decision to come out of retirement. Fellow Brit Witter, who regularly tried to fight Hatton, believes a return could prove to be a mistake due to the former world champion's lifestyle. "I don't see what is in it for him," he told the Daily Express. "You have to come back for a reason and I don't see what the reason is. "Ricky achieved what he did in a brilliant career, but he is not the type of kid who likes to stay fit and in shape. "Ricky likes to go out for a beer. His lifestyle is just not suited to be a professional boxer and it is a mistake for him to come back," he added.
