At Age 43, Ricky Hatton Plans on Returning to The Ring After His Hiatus

Published

on

At the age of 43, Ricky Hatton has stated that he will come out of retirement. On social media, the Manchester boxer announced his return to the ring, saying he’ll be facing Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera.

Long Awaited

After a loss against Vyacheslav Senchenko in 2012, the former world champion, dubbed “The Hitman,” stopped from professional boxing. It had been three years since his last fight, which was against Manny Pacquiao.

Continuing His Great Career

Hatton’s career lasted 45 fights, with only three losses, two of which came against Manny Pacquiao and the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, before his final loss to Senchenko. He had one of the greatest fan bases in sports during his career, with thousands of people following him across the world and generating a rowdy scene wherever he fought.

With the confirmation of the fight, it would seem that his fan base would still grow and be behind his back. After all, who wouldn’t want to watch one of the greats lace up their boots and give the ring even more!

Hall of Famer Lauren Jackson Comes Out of Retirement and Headlines for Australia

The most accomplished basketball player in Australia will be competing for a roster slot as the Opals get ready to host the 2019 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup. The three-time WNBA MVP and Basketball Hall of Famer Lauren Jackson was declared to have ended her international retirement on Tuesday.

The Why

Prior to the competition, which runs from September 22 to October 1 in Sydney, Australia, Lauren Jackson has formally ended her international retirement in order to join the Opals.

More Left in the Tank

A Hall of Famer coming out of retirement is uncommon, but the 41-year-old Jackson, who was inducted in 2021, has been preparing for this occasion for some time. Jackson returned to the court this past April when she joined the Albury Wodonga Bandits in the NBL 1 East after a string of ailments forced her to retire from professional basketball in March 2016.

Jackson acknowledged that she is concerned about how her body will react to the increase in training since she hasn’t competed at this level since 2016. However, given that injuries ended her career, this opportunity to represent the Opals gives Jackson a chance to define the latter stages of her career on her own terms.
