Barrera Invites Ricky Hatton Ringside For Juarez Rematch
03.08.06 - September 16th might not mean much to the average Brit, but stop a Mexican in the street and he will tell you that is the day his country gained Independence. So, on the 16th of September, WBC Super Feather Champion Marco Antonio Barrera will celebrate Mexican Independence Day in a rematch against Rocky Juarez in Las Vegas. Marco has invited England's very own 'White Mexican", WBA Welterweight Champion Ricky Hatton, to be his guest at the fight..
Ricky has accepted and will dust off his sombrero to be ringside with promoter Dennis Hobson and the rest of Team Hatton to support the "Baby Faced Assassin".
Ricky is quoted as saying "When Marco asked me to go out I didn't need asking twice. It will be an honour to support my friend. He's an amazing boxer and a great guy."
Ricky has been back in the gym during the last couple of weeks and is taking a short break before stepping up his training later this month in anticipation of his next fight on 9 December.
