Ricky Hatton believes he's in the best shape of his life as he prepares for his comeback fight at the Manchester Arena.
Three years after retiring the Hyde fighter returns to the ring a week on Saturday when he'll take on Ukraine's former World Champion Vyacheslav Senchenko.
Senchenko was undefeated in 32 fights before being stopped on cuts in April to lose his WBA belt to Paulie Malignaggi - the brash American who, four years ago this month, was Hatton's last successful conquest in a record of 45 wins and two losses.
"It's got to be done in the right manner," said Hatton.
"I can't go out there and fight with my face and with my emotions.
"It's all about sticking to the game plan that I've been working on with my trainer, Bob Shannon, for the past 12 weeks and channelling all that aggression in a positive manner.
