Ricky Hatton’s Calling His Boxing Career Done
Hatton’s calling it done. He’s not going to have another fight as of the moment. A lot of his fans has been longing to see him back inside the ring. The 31-year-old former WBA welterweight champ has revealed that he would most unlikely be fighting again. He told BBC Radio Manchester these statement: “You can never say never, but if I was to put my last pound on it I would say ‘no, I think that’s me done’.”
He once told his fans that he’s fighting back but it has been 16 months since that day and fight has been realized. However, Hatton has renewed his license just in case his decision would be changed. He’s into promoting the sport now and he’s envisioning to make future champs from his fighters.
Hatton’s last fight was against Manny Pacquiao way back May 2009. Before that he defeated Juan Lazcano at the City of Manchester Stadium in May 2008, and went on to defeat Pauli Malignaggi in Las Vegas six months later. The former boxing champ has already proven a lot in the world of boxing. He has been the former two-time IBF and IBO light welterweight champion and adding up that he’s also a former WBU, WBA Light Welterweight Champion and WBC, WBA, WBO Inter-Continental Light Welterweight Champion, and former Ring magazine Junior Welterweight Champion.
Hatton might not be fighting now but who knows in the future he might change his mind and surprise all his fans in the world.Follow us on Twitter to get free up-to-date news via tweets from the World Correspondents, or you can subscribe to us by entering your e-mail below.
