Richardson Hitchins Wants To Fight Montana Love in New York

Undefeated junior welterweight Richardson Hitchins (15-0, 7KO) is still willing to fight Montana “Too Pretty” Love (18-1-1, 9KO) but the fight has to be in his hometown.

This is a fight that Hitchins has been wanting and is one of the reasons he inked a multi-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing back in September. In his debut under the new banner, Hitchins fought in the backyard of Love on the undercard. Immediately after defeating Yomar Alamo, the New Yorker called out Too Pretty.

Had Love won his fight against Steve Spark, boxing fans probably would have gotten to see the two rivals battle in 2023. However, Love got disqualified after helping Spark over the top rope as if it was a WWE Royal Rumble.


Many felt this may have killed any chances of seeing Hitchins and Love settle their beef in the ring. In addition, Hitchins appeared to no longer be interested in the fight and called out top-rated contender Liam Paro.

In an intermission interview of the trilogy between Juan Francisco Estrada versus Roman Gonzalez, Hitchins expressed interest in fighting the Ohio fighter and believes it will be an easy payday.

“Montana Love is not a strong name in the division. I kind of expected Steve Spark to give him trouble and potentially beat him, and that’s what happened. If me and Montana Love can make the fight, I think it should be in New York.”

“Because of the bad blood, it would be great to bring that fight to the big city. Hopefully, he agrees . . . like I said, I think it will be easy work and I am prepared to make that fight, if that’s what is presented to me.”
