Ricky Hatton

One of the most hotly anticipated bouts in recent memory, Ricky Hatton vs. Vyacheslav Senchenko, will be broadcast live via satellite at selected Showcase cinemas on Saturday 24 November at 10pm.

Britain’s greatest boxer, Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton, returns to the boxing ring after three years to fight Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena. Tickets for the event sold out within 24 hours, but fans can still be part of the action and see the fight screened live at selected Showcase cinemas.

One of boxing’s superstars, Ricky Hatton has been packing arenas around the world since his early days in the sport. A relentless force in the ring whose pressure and body punching has broken down quality fighters for years, Hatton turned pro at the young age of 19 after a hugely successful amateur career. Hatton is the former IBF and WBA light welterweight champion also achieving the WBA welterweight belt and in 2007 received an MBE award for services to sport.

The boxing legend will make his return to the ring in his hometown of Manchester for the first time since being knocked out by Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas in 2009.

Hatton commented: “I’m back and I’m here to go places. I won’t let you down.”

Ukrainian boxer Vyacheslav Senchenko is a formidable opponent and will have the advantage of height being several inches taller than Hatton at 5’10”. Senchenko lost his WBA welterweight title earlier this year to American Paulie Malignaggi, the boxer’s first defeat in 33 fights.

Boxing fans can experience the atmosphere and action of the Manchester Arena at selected Showcase cinemas with the live broadcast of Ricky Hatton vs. Vyacheslav Senchenko on Saturday 24 November.
