Manchester boxer Ricky Hatton announces his retirement from the sport after Saturday night's defeat to Vyacheslav Senchenko.
Part of Ricky Hatton's statement in which he announces his retirement from the sport.
Hatton says he can't keep making excuses. I'm a different man now, I will be the best father, the best trainer, the best boyfriend I can be.
"We're really, really disappointed. We knew the opponent was an excellent opponent. He was getting caught coming in. He lost his concentration probably after the fourth round and was getting caught. "That body punch took everything out of him."
We're expecting Ricky Hatton in the press room at midnight.
Dream is over for Ricky Hatton. Stopped at end of round nine with a superb body shot.
