Tickets went on sale Yesterday for Ricky Hatton’s next fight - taking place at the City of Manchester Stadium, home of Ricky’s beloved Manchester City Football Team. An announcement confirming the fight details followed after rumours of a last minute press conference 2 days ago which led to some confusion amongst boxing notables.
Hatton will defend his IBO Light-Welterweight Title against Mexican - Juan Lazcano. Having won 37 of his 42 fights, Laczano is a former WBF and IBA Lightweight Title holder.
The Manchester City Stadium could house as many as 55,000 fans - making it the biggest boxing event in the UK. But without overhead cover - let’s hope that it’s a ‘fine’ Bank Holiday weekend ! Not that rain could dampen the spirits of a Hatton - crowd !
