Today's the day: Ricky Hatton is back, and he'll face Vyacheslav Senchenko in the main event of a big fight card from Hatton Promotions at Manchester Arena, in front of what is sure to be a rabid, sold-out crowd.
Hatton (45-2, 34 KO) hasn't fought since his May 2009 loss to Manny Pacquiao, while Senchenko (32-1, 21 KO) is coming off of a one-sided defeat at the hands of Paulie Malignaggi in April.
Primetime pay-per-view is the carrier for the fight in the United Kingdom, and they will have the full card televised starting at 2:00 pm EST. In the United States, Showtime will broadcast only the main event, live at 5:00 pm EST.
Bad Left Hook will be here with live, round-by-round coverage and immediate post-fight results the whole way through, starting at 2:00 pm EST with the Primetime broadcast. There is no legal live stream for the fight.
On the undercard, Scott Quigg will face Rendall Munroe in a big super bantamweight showdown; Martin Murray looks to secure a shot at Sergio Martinez when he faces Jorge Navarro; Gary Buckland meets Stephen Foster Jr for the British super featherweight title; and Sergey Rabchenko defends his European junior middleweight belt against Cedric Vitu.
