Ricky Hatton To Reveal "Major Announcement" on Friday

By Terence Dooley

Ricky Hatton has sent out a press release confirming that he will make a "major announcement" on Friday at Manchester's Radisson Blue Hotel. This has poured fuel on the flames of the "Hatton comeback" fire as the former world light-welterweight and WBA welterweight champion's press release does not mention an announcement about anyone else in Hatton's promotional stable and has been seen by some fans as confirmation that "The Hitman" will use the occasion to announce that he is making his ring return at the MEN Arena on November 24.

Hatton, though, has also been angling for a TV deal for his large stable of fighters, so Friday's announcement could merely be news of a TV deal for Hatton Promotions. However, there have been rumours that potential TV networks such as Channel 5 have demanded that Hatton's comeback fight be the first fight on any long-term deal. Ironically, Sky TV, who dumped Hatton's stable by email only recently, are now emerging as favourites to televise the show should the 45-2 (32) boxer return to resume a career that saw him hit the top level by beating the legendary Kostya Tsyzu for the light-welterweight championship in 2005.

Manchester's most popular fight figure only lost to the best, stoppage reverses to Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 10 and two rounds respectively, and the 33-year-old has admitted that he still feels the competitive fire. Indeed, recent photos showing him in and around his former fighting weight suggest that, should he come back for one more run, the former champion can still whip himself into great shape.
