Ricky ‘The Hitman‘ Hatton
will be back in the ring in 10 days time at his spiritual home of the
MEN Arena in his native Manchester.
Today at his gym in Hyde, the
former two weight world champion looked 10/10 as he opened his gym doors to the media as he prepares for his second coming.
34, will take on former welterweight WBA world champion Vyacheslav
Senchenko on November 24, it will be his first fight in over 3 years,
since losing to Manny Pacquaio in May 2009.
a very aggressive fighter by nature and my fighting style is why the
fans love me and why they turn out in their droves every time to find
me, It will be the same old Ricky Hatton, not changed but maybe tweaked a
little bit here and there.” – Ricky Hatton
I’m going to throw it all at Senchenko on the night and that could be a painful night for him. But It’s got to be done in the right manner. I can’t go out there and fight with my face and with my emotions. It’s all about sticking to the game plan that I’ve been working on with my trainer, Bob Shannon, for the past 12 weeks and channelling all that aggression in a positive manner.
I think as you get a little bit older and wiser you just need to take your foot off the gas that little bit. Ultimately my aggressiveness got me in trouble against Manny Pacquiao, it got me in trouble against Mayweather, how many times do you have to get knocked out before the light switch goes on and you think ‘I’ve got to slow it down a bit.”
