 Manchester, England (Sports Network) - Ricky Hatton's comeback into the boxing
 ring  ended in a stirring defeat Saturday at Manchester Arena. The former two-
 time  world champion was knocked out by ex-WBA welterweight titlist Vyacheslav
 Senchenko in the ninth round.
 
 Hatton  (45-3, 32 KOs) retired over three years ago after being knocked out in
 the second round by Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2009.
 
 Senchenko  (33-1, 22 KOs), who was coming off a ninth-round TKO loss to Paulie
 Malignaggi  on  April 29, stunned Hatton  with a left hook. Hatton was counted
 out with eight seconds left in the ninth round.
 
 Following  the fight,  the  34-year-old  Hatton announced  he  was ending  his
 career, again.
