Hatton, Khan Could Light Things Up in 2013 Clash
By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star
OLD TRAFFORD will be in the running to host Ricky Hatton-Amir Khan if the pair get it on next year.
Former world champion Hatton makes his comeback against Ukrainian Vyacheslav Senchenko on November 24.
And if it turns out to be successful, the plan is to have another fight before a crack at Khan.
Hatton, 34, would be interested in a rematch with New Yorker Paulie Malignaggi, who continues to hold the WBA welterweight title.
Should Manchester City nut Hatton come through two fights on the comeback trail, he would be on a collision course with Bolton light-welterweight Khan at the home of Manchester United in the autumn.
Pride of Hyde Hatton, who has won an impressive 45 out of 47 bouts during his illustrious career, would spice things up by walking out to City anthem Blue Moon.
In October it is the 20th anniversary of Nigel Benn’s fierce scrap with Chris Eubank at Old Trafford when 42,000 turned up to see the two British middleweights in a world title fight.
Another bumper crowd could be expected for Hatton-Khan in 2013, should the pair revive their careers.

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12624988]Hatton has just replied to this on twitter...[/QUOTE] well, he said exactly the same on twitter a few days before his comeback was officially announced so I wouldn't take that as gospel. Why Trafford ? Maybe Khan doesn't…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (10)
