Marquez Keen On Hatton Bout

BOXING : Ricky Hatton looks increasingly likely to continue his career with a high-profile fight against Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez next year.

Ricky Hatton looks increasingly likely to continue his career with a high-profile fight against Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez next year.
Hatton’s lawyer and promotional partner Gareth Williams had hinted the Mancunian was interested in returning from his second-round knockout by Manny Pacquiao in May by taking on Marquez. And Richard Schaefer, chief executive of Hatton’s American promoter Golden Boy Promotions, has indicated the 36-year-old three-weight world champion is keen to make the fight happen.
“Gareth Williams has indicated to me Ricky would like to fight Juan Manuel Marquez,” Schaefer said.
“I think it would be a great, great all-action showdown so I’m frankly extremely excited if that fight could happen.”
Asked whether the fight would take place in Manchester, Schaefer added on Sky Sports News: “Absolutely, that’s what Gareth has mentioned and I have had conversations with Juan Manuel Marquez on Monday here at my offices.
“I have informed him of the possibility of a showdown in England, in Manchester, against Ricky Hatton and he immediately accepted the challenge, accepted the opportunity and would love to come to Manchester.”
