Promoters Dennis Hobson and Robert Waterman of Fight Academy in the UK have announced that boxing's premiere ring announcer, Michael Buffer will be at ring center with the introductions and his trademark, "Let's Get Ready To Rumble!" as undefeated IBF Light Welterweight World Champion, Ricky "Hitman" Hatton (39-0, 29KO's) battles WBA champion, Carlos Maussa (19-2,18KO's) in THE UNIFICATION at Sheffield, England's Hallan FM Hall on Saturday, November 26.

Buffer had this to say about the upcoming event, "I'll be coming in from Tokyo by way of Los Angeles, where I will spend one night at home and pick up a fresh tuxedo, then take off for England. Traveling more than half way around the world to be in Sheffield for this fight will be well worth the trip as these two champions put their titles on the line in this unification match. Right now, the 140 pound division is the deepest and best when it comes to star power and legitimate talent. Ricky Hatton, with his dominate victory over Tszyu, has put the boxing world on notice that his is among the best in the business--not only in his division, but--in the unofficial rankings of 'pound for pound'. As for Carlos Maussa, I was at ringside when he KO'd Vivian Harris and shocked everyone...everyone but himself! He has a great deal of confidence in his power which allows him to stay focused when, at times, he must weather the storm, because he knows he can turn it around with one big punch. These two champions know that big money awaits the winner down the line. Lucrative fights with Arturo Gatti, Miguel Cotto, and Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather are a fight fan's dream."

Fight fans in the US wil be able to see all the action (including undercard bouts) of the "UNIFICATION" on November 26, live from England, at 4PM EST (1PM PST) distributed by Integrated Sports, available on DirecTV, Dish Network, InDemand and TVN for only $19.95.
