Ricky Hatton Ends Career After Comeback Ends in Knockout and Tears


For Ricky Hatton, the fight is over at last. When the excellent former world champion Vyacheslav Senchenko drilled a wicked left deep into Hatton's washboard gut eight seconds from the end of the ninth round here on Saturday night, he left the skeletal shell of a former hero bent double on the canvas for the full count, but the Ukrainian did no more than put a full stop to a sentence that had been drawn out maybe a soundbite too long in recent weeks and months.
