Ricky Hatton Will Officially Announce His Retirement

by Chris LaBate

According to the Manchester Evening News, former two division champion Ricky Hatton (45-2, 32KOs) is going to officially announce his retirement from the sport of boxing. Hatton has been inactive since suffering a brutal two round knockout at the hands of Manny Pacquiao in May of 2009. Since the loss, Hatton has battled depression and substance abuse problems, but he also started a very promising run as a promoter with his family-owned company, Hatton Promotions. During his inactivity, Hatton would consistently deny comeback rumors, but he always left the door open for a possible return.
