    Whadaya reckon?

    Didn't realise he got a brain injury from the hatton fight, do you reckon they'll let him fight if it's true?

    IMO i would only like to see him come back at 147 and fight a big name. If he was coming back at 140 to fight a no name i really dont feel he should bother. Tsyzu aint got anything to prove imo.

    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Phillips story in of itself was something out of a fable. Getting whipped by the lesser all-time champs but handing it to Tsyzu. Incredible. Would love to see Tsyzu come back. He was my favorite fighter when he was around. I'd like to Tsyzu vs. Mosley or Tsyzu vs. Collazo.

    yeah i hope he does. he's not that old and he looked anything but passed it in his last fight with hatton (despite all the past it talk).

    Kostya Vs Cotto at 147 would be a great fight and a real test for cottos chin at the higher weight. If he could stop Kostya and prove he has a decent chin he would silence a lot of critics imo includin me

    yeah cotto would silence a lot if he beat tszyu. but more than likely kostya would have a warm up fight at welter with a lesser opponent first if that fight were to happen, which i don't particualy wan't to see. the way tszyu trains i don't think he will necasarily need a warm up fight. i would love ot see tszyu vs margarito

    As much as I rate Kostya, he really should stay retired. One more fight proves nothing. He has been out for a long time since Hatton and before that had fought only once in a very, very long time...

    He is in his late 30's and has fought a handful of fights in 5 years...If he was to come back it should have been sooner, now he should just bow out...

    He has his pride still intact, no need to take any more risks....

    if tsyzu is gonna come out of retirement, he should as well go after the biggest fish around. pretty boy maywheater. at 147 i would love to see pbf vs tsyzu. koysta tsyzu would look good on pbf resume, or the old lion koysta can put little floyd to sleep.

    It would have been interesting several years ago.

    People seem to forget how old and inactive Kostya is....

    Yep agreed. So what if he lost to a possesed Ricky Hatton that night, lets be honest that was no longer a Prime Kostya, he has nothing to prove and should be remembered as a great boxer.

    I agree 100%. Hes one of my all time favorite fighters, but hes been far too inactive and i dont think he could fight a a high pace. A fight with Cotto, Hatton or any top p4p could be desasterous for him at this point imo.

    im not forgetting, i just still want to see it even though yea kosta is past it. im just saying if his coming back he should as well go for the biggest glory posible and that is beating pbf. im not saying he will win though.
