Ricky Hatton returning November 24

Former world champion Ricky Hatton officially announced that he’s coming out of retirement on Friday at a press conference in Manchester, England. “No one wants to end their career that way,” Hatton said referring to his last fight (a second round KO loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2009). “It put me into retirement, which I never wanted to do. The manner of that defeat put me into some things which have been well documented…my life turned to mush. The dream is redemption. If a world title comes with it, then so be it.” The 33-year-old Hatton said he will return November 24 in Manchester against an opponent to be named.
