Hatton retires again after ninth round KOBritain’s Ricky Hatton announced his retirement from boxing for a second time after his comeback ended in a ninth-round KO by Ukrainian welterweight Vyacheslav Senchenko in Manchester, England, on Saturday.
Britain’s 34-year-old two-weight former world champion had lost four-and-a-half stone in preparation for his first fight in three and a half years, and 20,000 raucous fans turned up at the MEN Arena to see his return to the ring in his home city.
“I needed one more fight to see if I had still got it - and I haven’t,” he said.
