WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly supports Ricky Hatton's decision to return to boxing and insists he could once again be crowned world champion, though accepts it is unlikely.
"It's a good shout for him to come back. He's only 33 and has had a good break from the sport," Cleverly said.
"He may have the hunger again now and go out on a high after that loss to Pacquiao. I support the decision.
"He was a great fighter - hungry, determined and would fight anybody, taking on the very best. He was a great champion and a fighter to look up to.
"Winning a world title after having so long out of the sport is a long shot, especially after living that lifestyle, but it's possible.
"He's still got the foundation there from many years ago. He could still beat someone like (WBA world welterweight titleholder) Paul Malignaggi."
