On Thursday, Ricky Hatton vs. Paulie Malignaggi became official. Hatton and Malignaggi will face off on HBO this coming November 22. The fight will go down at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In regards to the upcoming battle, Oscar De La Hoya (Hatton's promoter) is quoted today in the Media, stating: "Hatton is an aggressive puncher who swarms his opponents from start to finish while Malignaggi is one of the purest boxers in the game today."

De La Hoya is quite certain that the styles of both fighters will make for a great fight. De La Hoya stated: "As a fan, I am excited to see if Hatton can lure Malignaggi into a brawl or if Malignaggi can dictate the tempo and make the fight his. No matter what happens, I think when their styles collide, it's going to make for great action and great drama."
