Former two-weight world champion Ricky Hatton says he is coming out of retirement, more than three years after a comprehensive loss to Manny Pacquiao in the Briton's last fight.

Hatton, who won titles in the light welterweight and welterweight divisions, retired last year with a 45-2 record after being stripped of his boxing license in 2010 following newspaper revelations of drug use.

His comeback fight has been scheduled for Nov. 24 in Manchester, against an as-yet-unnamed opponent.

The 33-year-old Hatton slipped into depression and considered suicide while trying to come to grips with the second-round knockout by Pacquiao in May 2009.

Hatton says "no one wants to end their career that way," adding that "it's great to be back."

Hatton's last fight ended with him in a neck brace. That plus his eating habits makes this seem like a bad idea. If he beats the guy, he beats some random. If he loses, it will be even less gracious than the Pacquaio fight.

He's a likeable guy, and that's why he should stop fighting and start investing. There's nothing left to prove.
