Retired Ricky Hatton is ready to make boxing comeback – and wants to fight Rio Ferdinand – Mirror.co.uk

“He wouldn’t have taken it up if he wasn’t going to give it a go and do it justice.”

Ricky Hatton has claimed that he is willing to come out of retirement to face Rio Ferdinand in the boxing ring.

The former world champion retired from the sport in 2012 after an illustrious career which saw him become one of the most popular British boxers of all-time, but the 39-year-old has admitted that a return to the ring against the former England skipper has tempted him.

“I’ll make a comeback and fight him,” he continued.

And now Manchester City fan Hatton has admitted that he could be tempted back into the ring to face the former Manchester United defender.

#8220;This is memory and that#8217;s why the mirror is so important, where I#8217;m looking at my stance, looking at my technique and just got to keep drilling that home.#8221;

Earlier this month Ferdinand celebrated his 39th birthday in Dubai, but continued to work the pads.
