Boxing: Hatton urges Calzaghe to quit
Monday 10 November 2008
Ricky Hatton has joined the chorus urging his fellow British boxing great Joe Calzaghe to retire.
Calzaghe, 36, remains unbeaten in his professional career after 46 fights, the last against Roy Jones Jr at Madison Square Gardens on Saturday night.
The Welsh fighter hinted he might fight on and there is speculation he could fight IBO and IBF light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson at a homecoming bout in Cardiff.
But Hatton dismissed the suggestion, telling Radio Five Live: "He should retire - there's nothing more Joe Calzaghe can do.
"There's always a new contender coming through. They're going on about Joe should fight Chad Dawson, I think that's a load of rubbish. Joe has beaten Bernard Hopkins, he's beaten Roy Jones - you can't get a better way to bow out, really."
