Senchenko ducks Hatton press conference

Former world champion Ricky Hatton had the press all to himself on Thursday as opponent and fellow former champion Vyacheslav Senchenko was a no-show at the final press conference at Manchester Town Hall. Hatton Promotions Director of Boxing Richard Poxon explained that Senchenko didn’t attend because he didn’t want to do the face-off with Ricky. Hatton quipped “the main thing is I’m here.” Addressing concerns that he would never be the same after his KO loss to Manny Pacquiao three years ago, Hatton stated “I won’t come back the same. I’m going to come back better Saturday night, you watch!” Hatton-Senchenko takes place Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England.
