Ricky Hatton to Host Raw from UK

From The Sun Wrestling:
RICKY HATTON will be the special guest host of Raw when the WWE hits the Sheffield Arena next month.
Officials from the wrestling promotion told SunSport the British boxing legend will head up the show when Raw rolls into South Yorkshire on November 9.

The Hitman will become the second boxer to appear on the programme after his old foe Floyd Mayweather Jr performed an identical role in August.

It is understood WWE owner Vince McMahon wanted a Brit with a big enough profile in the United States to host the company's flagship offering.

Manchester-born Hatton fits the bill perfectly, with his fights against Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao generating huge pay-per-view numbers in the States in recent years.
