Former world champion and British icon Ricky Hatton, who makes his comeback on November 24 against Vyacheslav Senchenko at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England, says his days of boozing and binge-eating are over.
“This is a permanent lifestyle change,” Hatton told the Daily Mail. “I know that if I’m going to get all the way back to winning world titles I can’t blow up to 15 stones (210 lbs.) between fights and then train like crazy and crash diet to get the weight off. My body won’t take that any more. But I also know that the drink and everything else was killing me. The depression which followed not only that defeat by Pacquiao but all the bingeing took me to the brink of suicide. That won’t happen again. At 34 I’ve got my life under control.”

The world of boxing but especially the San Diego fight scene suffered a tragedy on Saturday when the beloved world title challenger Tony “Bazooka” DeLuca lost his hard fought battle with cancer around noon. DeLuca, who fought as a light flyweight for eight years, was a fixture at San Diego fight cards recently even as he suffered from throat cancer. DeLuca began his career in 1983 and fought almost exclusively on recent California Hall of Fame local promoter’s Bobby D. Philippi’s cards in downtown San Diego. The southpaw “Bazooka” retired in 1991 with a more than a respectable 17-6-3, 6KOs record while facing along the way the likes of Michael Carbajal for the NABF title and Duke McKenzie for the IBF crown. Known as a tough out for anybody, DeLuca displayed that trait until the end as he waged war on his tragic disease. “Bazooka” is survived by his wife Theresa and will be sorely missed by the San Diego boxing community. DeLuca was fifty years young.
A Celebration of Life is planned for the near future. Details will be released by Fightnews.com as soon as they are made public.

It’s very simple, really: I have a score to settle with Adamek. It’ll be just me and him in the ring, lots of emotion. I will everything to win this fight. We both know that,” – said Steve Cunningham (25-4, 12 KO) in a Fightnews.com interview in advance of his second encounter with Tomasz Adamek (47-2, 29 KO).

Robert Helenius (17-0, 11 KOs) will take on Sherman “Tank” Williams (35-11-2, 19 KOs) at Helsingin Jäähalli on November 10. “It´s a done deal,” Nordic Fight Night promoter Nisse Sauerland confirmed. “The contracts have been signed, the Tank is coming to Finland!
