Hatton in comeback reports
Ricky Hatton is again being linked with a return to boxing and reports say he will make his comeback against Paulie Malignaggi.
The 33-year-old 'Hitman' has not ventured in the ring since a damaging second round knockout defeat at the hands of Manny Pacquiao more than three years ago. Following some much-publicised drink and drug problems, Hatton appears to have got his life back on track and media reports claim he is now pondering a two-fight deal offer with the first bout scheduled for November against current WBA welterweight title holder, Malignaggi. The fight would hold some extra significance given that Hatton defeated Malignaggi in 2008 and the New Yorker has been keen to seek out revenge ever since. Hatton has so far remained silent on the rumours and it is not known whether the the former light-welterweight and welterweight champion would be enticed back to fight again as he is forging a successful promotions business while also acting as trainer and manager to several prospective fighters in his hometown of Manchester.
