    Hatton Dominates Tackie in Manchester


    Ricky "Hitman" Hatton (left) and Ben Tackie square off after Thursday's press conference in Manchester, England.

    UNBEATEN HATTON OUTPOINTS TACKIE TO RETAIN 140-POUND TITLES, UNDEFEATED LACY STOPS WIGGINS TO KEEP HIS SUPER MIDDLE BELTS ON A SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING DOUBLEHEADER FROM MEN ARENA IN MANCHESTER, ENGLAND
    The Bouts Will Be Replayed In Their Entirety On SHO2 On Tuesday, Dec. 16, At 11 PM ET/PT

    MANCHESTER, England (Dec, 13, 2003) – Undefeated World Boxing Union (WBU) Junior Welterweight Champion and current World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Association (WBA) No. 3 contender Ricky “Hitman” Hatton successfully defended his title an 11th time with a lopsided 12-round unanimous decision over International Boxing Federation (IBF) No. 14 contender Ben Tackie Saturday on SHOWTIME. In the co-feature from MEN Arena, unbeaten Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy retained his WBC Continental Americas/North American Boxing Association/United States Boxing Association (WBC/CA, NABA/USBA) super middleweight crowns with an eighth-round TKO over NABF Light Heavyweight Champion Donnell Wiggins. The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING doubleheader was promoted by Frank Warren’s Sports Network and aired live at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on West Coast).

    Hatton (34-0, 25 KOs), of Manchester, England, could not knock down the iron-chinned Tackie, but mostly dominated en route to winning by the scores of 120-109 twice and 118-110. The impressive youngster tired a tad in the late stages but did nothing to dispel the notion that he deserves a shot at one of the junior welterweight world champions. Hatton, who turned 25 on Oct. 6, captured the WBU 140-pound title on March 26, 2001, with a fourth-round knockout over Tony Pep in Wembley, England. Hatton successfully defended the WBU title four times in 2001 and 2002. In his first fight of 2003, Hatton registered an impressive 12-round unanimous decision over former world champion “Cool” Vince Phillips April 5 on SHOWTIME from Manchester.

    Tackie (24-5, 15 KOs), of Accra, Ghana, lost a 12-round decision in a fight for the third consecutive time. As usual, the durable contender performed gamely and made for a good scrap, but he lacked the offensive firepower to keep Hatton off him. In his last appearance, Tackie dropped a 12-round decision to Sharmba Mitchell in an IBF 140-pound elimination bout May 17, 2003, on SHOWTIME. On May 18, 2002, also on SHOWTIME, Tackie lost a 12-round decision to world 140-pound champion Kostya Tszyu. Tackie’s best performance came when he rallied to register a 10th-round TKO over former IBF 130-pound titleholder Roberto Garcia June 3, 2000, on SHOWTIME.
