Ricky Hatton cut a dejected figure in the ring after recovering from the crunching body shot which gave Vyacheslav Senchenko victory and stunned a previously raucous, 16,000-strong MEN Arena crowd into silence.
Hatton's trainer Bob Shannon admitted his boxer seemed to be distracted by the explosive atmosphere that the Manchester Arena provided.
"He wouldn't give me any eye contact when we were in the ring and the noise was that bad when I was trying to get him to work his jab," he said.
He added: "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."
