Too Much Alcohol Can Cause Hatton's Defeat by Manny Pacquiao

Floyd Mayweather, Sr. has warned his ward Ricky Hatton about his drinking habit saying that he is doing the wrong thing and that it will catch up on him later. Mayweather was short of saying that it may cause his defeat by Manny Pacquiao.
Popular British boxer Ricky Hatton is known for his binge drinking and chances are he would combine drinking and training for his date with pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines.

Certainly drinking (alcoholic) and training do not go together. And Hatton’s trainer, Floyd Maywether Sr. knows this so well. And so the old reliable trainer warned his favorite ward yesterday to go slow on his drinking habit.

‘I don’t like boxers drinking and Ricky would be much better without it’, Mayweather said. He could get whooped by a nobody because he is doing the wrong thing with his body’, the father of the former pound-for-pound king Floyd, Jr. said.

‘I’ve spoken to him about it and I hope he gets the message. It’s going to catch up with him somewhere down the line’, he added.

Hatton who celebrated by drinking several pints of beer after knocking out Paulie Malignaggi last year is oozing with confidence that he will be able to overpower Pacquiao in their light welterweight (140 lb) showdown at the MGM Grand garden arena in Las Vegas., reports.

Hatton has been criticized even by his own boxing fans about his uncontrollable drinking habit. But he was quoted to have said just before he faced Paulie Malignaggi in Las Vegas, ‘I will not stop drinking’. That was his straight answer to a question by a news reporter on his well publicized binge drinking.

On top of Hatton’s love for beer, vodka and other alcoholic drinks, he is also a food lover. He feasts on fried food and other fatty food items that are served during drinking sessions.

As Freddie Roach said, ‘You cannot change a boxer overnight; it takes years of continuous training and practice’. In the case of Ricky Hatton, it is doubtful if he will listen to his trainer. Just like drugs, alcohol is addictive and Hatton has been drinking since he was just starting out in the boxing profession. This makes it very hard for him to give it up almost instantly.

Hatton’s lack of discipline with regards to his health and his continued drinking habit could lead to his downfall as a boxer. And even if he stops drinking now, there is no assurance that he will be physically fit when he climbs up the ring on May 2, 2009 and face the world’s best pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.
