Ricky Hatton has announced that he will face former welterweight
titlist Vyacheslav Senchenko in his comeback fight on November
At a press conference in Manchester this morning 'The Hitman'
stressed that he wanted to lock horns with an opponent that will
help him move towards another world title fight.
Senchenko, 32 - 1 (21 KOs), is ranked in the top five by the WBA
and victory over him would set up a rematch with current belt
holder Paulie Malignaggi, who Hatton defeated in late 2008.
The announcement ends weeks of speculation in which names such
as Michael Katsidis and Lovemore Ndou were mentioned.
More details to follow.
