SENCHENKO KNOCKS OUT HATTON IN 9 WITH VICIOUS BODY SHOT

Moment ago, the long-awaited comeback of two-division world champion Ricky Hatton was derailed when former welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko landed a vicious left hook to the body in the 9th round of a competitive fight at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom. It didn't take long for Hatton to shake off the 3 years of ring rust, taking the action right to Senchenko with a relentless attack. Senchenko, however, was able to rally back, regaining control with a stiff jab a right hand that continuously found a home. Hatton appeared to be coming on strong in the final rounds until Senchenko's left hook brought an end to the action. Relive all the action in FightHype's round-by-round results.
