 Kosta Tszyu is talking about not retiring but fighting Ricky Hatton in
a rematch. Tszyu quit before the 12th round in his last match vs Hatton
back in June. No date has been set for a preposed rematch.

He should take a tuneup against Ricky Martin first.

Tszyu will be fighting Footybet in November, as Footybet is not
foolhardy enoguh to believe he can take on a world champion in his
first boxing match.

He'll retire.He surrendered the title to Hatton while sitting on the
stool,there's no need for a rematch.

  While Tszyu did quit vs Hatton he also gave him an opportunity at the
championship and acclaim he is getting now. You also have to take into
account his career as a whole. It's a tough call but if Kostya wants to
give it one more try he deserves it and I'm sure Hatton and Warren will
give it to him. Just don't put it on PPV.

Tszyu and Roy Jones should hang it up.Two legends of the ring that need
to quit before they braindamaged for life.

Let Kostya comeback and have his rematch.  He tried to stand and trade
with a guy who was stronger than him, so now lets see if he has any
veteran guile to get him through a rematch.  If any ex-champ deserves
a rematch, it's Tszyu - he went over to his opponents turf, fought a
predictable fight, and still gave the new champ everything he could
handle.

Tszyu must feel like he's a minor adjustment and one punch away from
regaining his title and enhancing his spot in history.  He's doing
what anyone would do - so let's make the rematch soon!

I don't think that Tszyu should take the rematch, but if he wants to I
don't see why he shouldn't. While I don't think he will win, he looked
nothing like as shot as Roy Jones did. Tszyu has slowed up, like any
35/26 year old, but he's not shot. Hatton is a very good fighter, and
Tszyu was able to make a very close fight out of it.

I do think that Tszyu should retire - he's not going to beat Hatton at
this stage in his career - but the amount of money on offer may be well
worth the risks to him.

That's exactly how it struck me.  He figured out that there was no way
to win given the gameplan, so no point in taking any more abuse.  He
acknowledged that night that he fought the wrong fight, and we all know
that he can fight differently.  He might have been caught up in
Coralles/Castillo hype, given that Castillo stood and traded and won.

I'm all for it.

I'd actually favour Hatton in a remtach, but if Hatton isnt going to
fight Mayweather, there's no one else I'd rather see him fight than
Tszyu  (I"m a Floyd fan, so I want Cotto undefeated for him to fight).
And if anyone other than Mayweather or Cotto have a shot at Hatton,
it's Kostya.

   The only place Ricky Hatton will fight is England and I just don't
see Floyd hauling off over there to fight him. Plus you have the
SHOWTIME & HBO contract tangles that would need to be straightened out.
In addition you know Floyd would want the bigger cut of the purse and
you know  Warren wouldn't go for that!!!

I think the network thing will stunt the fight.  Floyd craves the P4P
standing (not to mention the number one rating in his division) and
beating Hatton gives him that.  I get the feeling Hatton feels the
same way as floyd does - but the networks will ultimately hold it up.

Please let this happen Tszyu will show how good he is...he will win easily
on points.He is the smart fighters teacher and shall prove it.There is no
way he would come back if he thought he couldn't win and win quiet
comfortably with an ajustment to his gameplan.
Anybody out there think that Hatton could beat Tszyu in  another way than
the first fight? *as the tumbleweed blows by*

Why does Hatton need another way? It's Kostya who needs another way. The
problem is, Hatton did to KT what KT did to just about everyone he faced -
he dominated him physically and imposed himself in such a way that NO change
in tactics was going to help.

Why? Because age finally caught up with the warrior. No one escapes it, not
even the mighty Kostya Tszyu. What he CAN escape is the ignominy that so
many before him have incurred. He should retire. He should have retired
*before* the Hatton fight, if you really want the news. He should retire
because he's smart enough to know it's the sensible thing to do.

Maybe he's become greedy, and/or really believes he could do it. Few would
deny him the opportunity - even Hatton admitted as much after the fight -
Tszyu refused no one in his career and if anyone ever had the 'right' to ask
for a re-match it's Tszyu.

If he gets it and pulls off a win, he could rightly claim to stand beside
JCC as the greatest 140lb'er of all time. And of course, look what happened
to JCC (and who snuffed his career?).

Tszyu ignores that irony at his peril.

.He is a much better fighter if allowed to box not like the Ref let Hatton
hold on so blatantly throughout the whole fight.When allowed to fight
'boxing' style and not 'wrestling' Tszyu had him just a pity people forget
and look at the result.

Age yep easy cop out just like he was too old to take on Mitchell.

See above and reconsider

 He should retire

He would if it was right.
