Ricky Hatton To Come Back From Retirement At 43 Years Old
In one of the shocks of 2022 so far, Ricky Hatton has confirmed that he is planning to come back from retirement.
The Hitman will be returning to the ring at the age of 43 for an exhibition fight against Marco Antonio Barrera. The match will be taking place on July 2 in the Manchester Arena.
The former British boxer will be returning to this arena a decade after retiring. His last match was in 2012 when he got defeated by Vyacheslav Senchenko in this arena.
The 43-year-old has been training aggressively in the last few months to get in shape for this fight.
In the United Kingdom, you won’t see a more popular fighter in the market than Hatton. He has enjoyed a lot of support in the UK during his prime.
The Stockport native has successfully unified titles at super-lightweight and was also able to clinch the welterweight title.
But he fell short in his fights against Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2007 and 2009 respectively.
His 21-year-old son, Campbell, has since become a pro boxer with a 7-0 record.
