Former world champion light welterweight boxer Ricky “Hitman” Hatton has finally made a decision on his boxing future and would like to step back into the ring sometime in 2010.
Ricky Hatton’s only two losses came against the two best pound for pound boxers in the world Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Hatton was urged to retire by many in the boxing community after his devastating KO loss to Manny Pacquiao in the second round of their fight in May of 2009.
Hatton has yet to name an opponent or venue but would like to fight in the summer for one last boxing match before he officially calls it quits.
Hatton doesn’t want a lower level opponent but another top notch competitor to compete against in his last bout since he fought at the highest level for the past several years.
Possible opponents thrown around are Amir Khan, Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley who is recognized as the best 140 pounder since Manny Pacquiao’s move up to welterweight.
