Be part of the Hitman's emotional return with Sky Box Office

Ricky Hatton's Manchester homecoming is a sell-out - but you can still be part of it thanks to Sky Box Office. We will be showing the Hitman's City of Manchester showdown with Juan Lazcano exclusively live on Saturday, May 24. What promised to be an emotional night will also include Hatton's next opponent, Paulie Malignaggi, putting his IBF world title on the line against Lovemore N'dou. And you won't have to stay up until the small hours to see the Hitman's first fight on these shores for almost three years either. He has put aside his American TV contract to make sure the fight suits British time, with Sky Box Office's broadcast beginning at 7.30pm. "It is at a fan-friendly time, an English time," said Hatton. "I put my contract with HBO and Golden Boy on hold so that I don't have to have it at two in the morning just to coincide with TV. I could have made a fair few extra quid for having it at two in the morning. "David Haye against Enzo Maccarinelli was at 2am, Joe Calzaghe's fight was at 2am. Generally that is what you have to do but I chose to put it on hold because I don't like the idea of 55,000 people coming to watch me at 2am. "It's my way of saying thank you really." Sky Box Office's coverage will bring you all the action from the City of Manchester Stadium, with expert analysis from former world champions Jim Watt, Johnny Nelson and Glenn McCrory. And as ever, skysports.com will be the best place to follow all the big-fight build-up including opinion pieces from the Sky Sports team, regular updates from inside the Hatton camp and blogs from the men in the know, Adam Smith and Ed Robinson. Sky Sports has followed Ricky Hatton from the moment he turned professional in 1997 and has shown many of his defining fights live including his British title victory, the defeat of Tszyu for the IBF world title, his win over Luis Collazo which made him a two-weight world champion, and his biggest fight to date, the blockbuster against Mayweather
