Fans believe Ricky's still got it

A Birmingham-based Ricky Hatton fan has placed the largest bet so far on the battling Brit to win his fight with Paulie Malignaggi at the weekend with William Hill.

The pugilistic punter has staked £7500 on Hatton, who is 2/5 favourite (he will make a profit if £3000 if successful) with Hills, to see off the challenge of younger opponent, the New Yorker, Malignaggi, who is 7/4, with the draw offered at 25/1.

'We've yet to take a single three figure bet for Malignaggi to win the fight, 95% of the money is for Ricky. Punters believe that Hatton, who seems to have trained well for this fight, will be back to his best under his new trainer, and can make short work of his outspoken opponent' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Hatton 5/6 to win on points and 40/1 to score a first round knockout, while Malignaggi is 9/4 and 80/1 respectively.
