Ricky Hatton has reportedly sold 18,000 tickets for his November 24 comeback in Manchester, for a fight that has 19,000 tickets available. All of this without an opponent named sort of frames just how big of an event Ricky Hatton returning to the ring is in his home country -- even though many don't think it's the right idea.
Hatton, 33, says he's humbled by the and the response to the fight:
"It's incredible how quickly the tickets have been selling and I want to say a huge thanks to everyone who has supported my return to the ring, whether that's by buying tickets or by the lovely messages of support I've received. For so many people, to come out and support me like this, especially in these hard financial times, is absolutely amazing and I'm truly humbled. We all need someone to believe in and hopefully I can be that person."
