Rio Ferdinand
 
Former professional boxer and Manchester City fan Ricky Hatton has challenged Rio Ferdinand to a fight.
 
Ferdinand, a former England and Manchester United defender, announced in September that he has taken up boxing, with the backing of bookmakers Betfair.
 
The 38-year-old claimed at the time that he is "aiming for a belt" and Hatton, who won 45 fights and suffered just three losses throughout his career, whilst also being a two-weight world champion, is now prepared to test his mettle.
 
“Rio’s a great lad and a boxing fan," he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
 
“He wouldn’t have taken it up if he wasn’t going to give it a go and do it justice.
“I’ll make a comeback and fight him."
 
Ferdinand won six Premier League titles during his time at United, and won 81 caps for his country.
