Carl Froch's WBC title eliminator v Dennis Inkin will be on March 29.

Particularly positive news is that the fight will be live on ITV1. There had been rumours that ITV were to give up on boxing, other than Amir Khan.

Was reading something earlier today that said that Hatton's next fight should be finalised by the end of next week, but there is no mention of who against only that he is hoping it will be at City of Manchester stadium.


It's going to be a JR. Welterweight fight and likely to be against one of the 'top 10' fighters of that division. I've heard a rumour of Ricardo Torres and I'm sure Paul Malignaggi will be rumoured aswell (although that seems unlikely).

Just seen an interview on Hatton's site and he doesn't reveal any opponents, but he wants for his next three fights to fight at COM Stadium, top the bill at Las Vegas and then rematch with Mayweather.

I have heard that Malignaggi will be on the CoM undercard to give him more exposure to British fans, with a view to setting up a Hatton v Mallagnagi fight in America later.

I think he's kidding himself if he thinks he has a chance against PBF tbh. Still would be a good event if Mayweather agreed to it though.

Looks like Hatton (who is still IBO light-welter champion) is going to fight IBO welter champion Isaac Hlatchwayo (probably misspelled that) for his City of Manchester fight.

Decent sort of match, but rather surprised he is fighting a welter after insisting he would be dropping back to light-welter. Unless the South African can actually make 10st.

Maybe he has ambitions of some future big welterweight fights? De La Hoya? Mayweather rematch? These are the big money, big reputation fights that Hatton really wants.

Unless Hlatchwayo can get down to light-welter then it looks like Ricky's next fight will be at welter. The one after that won't be De La Hoya or Mayweather as they are fighting each other again in September.

As I posted further up the thread, he's looking at 2 more fights then a possible Mayweather rematch. I also read on Hatton's site that he has a 2 year 5 fight plan. I've no doubt he'll be looking at 2 or 3 massive fights in that lot. I must admit I'm surprised he's staying at Welterweight, although you can understand why he has.

I wonder how realistic the issue of Ricky looking for a rematch with Mayweather is. I mean, if an interviewer asks him "would you like a rematch" then he is going to say "yes". And then the journalist makes his headline "Hatton says - I want a rematch". But whether he really expects to get one is something I am sceptical about.
