Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton is ready to get back in action.
The 39 year old former World champion, an avid Manchester City supporter, officially retired back in 2012 but is seriously contemplating a one fight comeback against the ex-Manchester United player now turned boxer, Rio Ferdinand.
Though Hatton doesn’t have an ideal track record when it comes to comebacks.
After getting knocked out by Manny Pacquiao in 2009, Hatton stayed out of the ring for three years until fighting one more time in 2012 against Vyacheslav Senchenko. ‘The Hitman’ got knocked again – a sure sign to hang ’em up for good.
Currently, Hatton spends his time training other fighters, most notably 11-0 heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman.
