Hatton to have one more fight

6:26 am on 14 January 2010

The British boxer Ricky Hatton has announced he'll come out of retirement for "one more fight" this year against a big name opponent at a venue and date still to be decided.

The former welterweight and light-welterweight world champion has not fought since he was knocked out in the second round by Filipino great Manny Pacquiao in May last year.

Hatton -- who has won 45 of his 47 fights -- shrugged off concerns about his health and says he's enjoyed a good break after the Pacquaio defeat with time to reflect and put that blow to the back of his mind.
