RICKY HATTON’S comeback dream could end in ruins next week – at the hands of a Manchester United fan.

Fanatical Manchester City supporter Hatton will end a three-year exile when he meets Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena on November 24.

Ukrainian welterweight Senchenko, who went to Hatton’s gym for a workout yesterday, revealed that he watches every United game he can on TV.

Senchenko said: “On top of our boxing rivalry, we will be supporting two different clubs – Ricky as a City fan and me as a United follower.”

The 35-year-old added: “Their manager Sir Alex Ferguson is the greatest and I think United will win the title back again.

“Before that, I intend to upset Ricky Hatton’s dream of coming back and winning another world title. I’ve been able to prepare for a long time and have certainly come here to win.”

Senchenko then rubbed even more salt into Hatton’s wounds by leaving the gym for a tour of Old Trafford.

He said: “My son Daniil, who is on the books of Shakhtar Donetsk, has asked me to bring back lots of United souvenirs.

“I will be bringing back shirts and scarves and other memorabilia.

“I have never seen United play live, but I watch them all the time on TV. Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are my favourite players and Ryan Giggs is the history of United.”

At 5ft 11in, Senchenko has a five-inch advantage on 33-year-old Hatton and added: “I’ve had the best sparring partners and the best training camp I have ever had. That makes me feel very confident.

“Ricky has decided to make a comeback and that must mean that, in himself, he feels convinced he can get back to the Ricky Hatton of old.

“The decision he has made means that he feels right in himself and that he can regain this fantastic quality that he had before.

“He wouldn’t have taken the chance to risk his legacy against someone like me.

“So he must be convinced he can get back to the top.

“He can be the same Ricky as he was before. I certainly am expecting to see the same Ricky Hatton because, if that wasn’t the case, he wouldn’t be coming back.

“I jumped at this opportunity is because it is a great chance for me to once again become a world champion.

“I could come back with a great win, the best of them all maybe, because I am fighting one of the most popular boxers on the planet.”

HATTON v. Senchenko will be screened on Primetime.

[QUOTE=chocolate]The winner is pretty much guaranteed a shot at Paulie Malignaggi .[/QUOTE] I don't think so. If Ricky loses and then Alexander wins on Jan 19 I imagine they would do a big unification bout in the summer.

I didn't realize Senchenko was that much taller than Hatton.

[QUOTE=JKidd2624]I'm not sure how beating a guy coming back after a 3 year booze and blow binge will help Senchenko get another world title shot, but more power to him for thinking that.[/QUOTE] The winner is pretty much guaranteed a shot at Paulie Malignaggi .

I'm not sure how beating a guy coming back after a 3 year booze and blow binge will help Senchenko get another world title shot, but more power to him for thinking that.
