Ricky Hatton to fight Vyacheslav Senchenko
Ricky Hatton has announced that he will face former welterweight titlist Vyacheslav Senchenko in his comeback fight on November 24.
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.
