Ward was the tough as nails journeyman who everyone liked, but a world class talent he was not. I like Ward, but he would have nothing to offer Hatton and would likely be stopped or lose by a wide margin via decision. Phone Post

Ward would probably get cut up and stopped inside of 6. Hatton by liberal use of elbows and head butts. Phone Post

This^^^ I can't imagine ward winng in any scenario. I guess the souped up version of PAC that starched hatton makes people dismissive of how good hatton was Phone Post

It seems like OP is a Hatton hater, I didn't know they existed! I never got to see much of Ward but he did beat Shay Neary who was undefeated and looked like a decent prospect in England.

He also had three great fights with Gatti, but in his prime Ricky would demolish him.

Hatton's punching power at junior WW was incredible and a fighter like Ward who wasn't exactly Mayweather when it came to defense, would got stopped by a body shot around the middle rounds IMO. Phone Post

His power was very good in his prime, but it was his work rate and body punching that really broke people up. I think it was a crying shame that he dropped his successful style after the Kostya fight.

And in answer to the OP, Hatton would take it easily.
