Ricky Hatton announces return to boxing

  • Former light welterweight champion Ricky Hatton announced at a press conference on Friday that he is coming out of retirement.

    Hatton has not fought since his loss to Manny Pacquiao in May 2009.

    The 33-year-old has a record of 45-2 with 32 knockouts.

    Hatton was stripped of his boxing license in 2010 following reports of drug use.

    He will return to the ring on November 24 in Manchester, England. His opponent is yet to be named.
