Ricky Hatton set for Senchenko bout
Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton will make his long-awaited comeback to the ring against Vyacheslav Senchenko on November 24.
The former two-weight World Champion announced his return to the ring earlier this month and has now booked a matchup with the 35-year-old Ukrainian.
Hatton, who has been in strict training for several months, and Senchenko will fight over ten rounds at welterweight at the Manchester Arena.
Senchenko has an impressive record to his name, losing just one of his 33 professional fights and is a former World Champion.
The Hitman, who will celebrate his 34th birthday next week, retired from the sport last year but, after confirming the bout with Senchenko, admitted he’s itching to get back into the ring.
Hatton said: “I can’t wait to get in the ring now and I’m sure that Vyacheslav Senchenko will give me a good fight. It’s one that I am confident I can win though.
“Senchenko lost the last time he fought to Paulie Malignaggi but he has got a good pedigree. I’m in great shape, I’m feeling good and I know I can put on a performance for all those watching.
“I’m a boxer who loves boxing and loves to box. I’m driven by a hunger to box and look forward to getting back in the ring on the 24th.”
As well as Hatton announcing his opponent for November 24, there is an exciting undercard featuring some of Britain’s brightest boxing talent.
Scott Quigg and Rendell Munroe will compete for the WBA Interim World Title at super bantamweight while Sergey Rabchenko will fight Cedric Vitu for the EBU light middleweight title.
Gary Buckland will face Stephen Foster Jr for the British super featherweight title while Martin Murray, Adam Etches, James Dickens, Scott Jenkins and Ryan Burnett will all be in action, with their opponents to be named at a later date.
