Ricky Hatton's Agent: No Decision Made on Comeback

Ricky Hatton's agent there is "no story" behind the rumors that the 33-year-old is about to make a return to the ring.

Speculation has been building for some time that Hatton's new training regime has led him to rethink his retirement from the sport.

The Daily Star reported on Wednesday that Hatton would make his comeback, likely in late November, and his target opponent was Paulie Malignaggi as part of a two-fight deal.

But Hatton's agent Paul Speak effectively ruled out a comeback, saying the former world champion was merely enjoying a cleaner lifestyle.

"People are speculating but he is just keeping fit and has not made any decision on a comeback. There's no story," he told Sky Sports.

The 'Hitman' has not fought since he was knocked out in the second round by Manny Pacquiao more than three years ago.

Poor matt hatton is being pushed aside again and Mattie has no career. Ricky is a publicity sponge and has to be in the news fake or not. Call Ricki a Publicity addict also with his other vices.
