In a recent interview with WBN, interim WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero kept his cards close to his chest when asked about a possible future world title bout with the returning Ricky ‘Hitman’ Hatton.
The 29 year-old from Gilroy, California mentioned at the time that his sole focus was upcoming opponent Andre Berto and any other fights would be considered after his November 24 clash with the former world title holder.
Hatton, 33, fights himself on the same night against Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena and Guerrero is 100% behind the Briton’s return to the ring, even without classing him as a future foe just yet.
“Ricky Hatton is and will always be, a popular fighter in the UK,” Guerrero told World Boxing News.
“He is good for boxing if he can get back on track as he brings a lot of fans to the U.S. when he fights here and that’s a good thing. I hope he does well with his comeback.”
Guerrero may soon become the full WBC title holder as Floyd Mayweather confirms that he will not fight until 2013, which could see him stripped of the title that he is yet to defend since claiming it fourteen months ago.
