Up on the cards then beaten like that.

Looked good at times but all over at others which is understandable.

I found his words after the fight quite moving.

Will always love this man!

I just wish the guy a bit of peace. Great seeing him fighting again, I was willing him the whole way through, but you could see there was something missing.

It's a shame, you can just tell that he feels he can't walk away with his head held high, like he hasn't done enough... the opposite of what EVERY fan thinks.

Officially retired again. Sounds like he's happy with the decision as well. Good stuff!

Ricky Hatton has announced his retirement from professional boxing following his loss to Vyacheslav Senchenko in his comeback fight in Manchester.

After a three-and-a-half year absence from the sport, the 34-year-old was stopped by a vicious left hook to the ribs that left his plans for a world tltle challenge in tatters.

An emotional Hatton said he would devote his future to his family and his promotional activities after deciding to call it a day despite having initially suggested he may consider fighting on.

He said: "I needed one more fight to see if I had still got it - and I haven't.

"I found out tonight it isn't there no more. I'm a straight-shooter and I tell the truth. I can look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I did my best, but there is always an excuse to find.

"I got in the best shape I possibly could but if I hadn't been hit with that body shot I would have just scraped over the line with a points win and I honestly think I would still be telling you all the same thing.

"A fighter knows and I know it isn't there any more. It's too many hard fights, I've burned the candle at both ends, I've put my body through the mire in and out of the ring but it doesn't matter how hard I train, I couldn't have done any better.

"I'm a happy man tonight. I don't feel like putting a knife to my wrists. I have got the answers I needed. I got the opportunity and I got the answers and no matter how upsetting it is, I have got to be a man and say it is the end of Ricky Hatton."

Nice to see an honest boxer, not the typical loudmouth so and so.
