Ricky Hatton makes his return to the MGM Grand boxing ring tonight in a 12-round match that has given his dedicated and noisy fan base another reason to depart Manchester, England, in early winter. Almost a year ago, Dec. 8, 2007, Hatton battled Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a welterweight title fight that received international attention, not only for the quality of competition, but also for the size and volume of Hatton's fan base.

Stevie Johnston's run of title defenses ended when he fought on the Oscar De La Hoya-Shane Mosley undercard three years ago.

Juan Lazcano (33-2-1, 25 knockouts), a hard-punching challenger from Sacramento who unleashed more than 100 punches in one round, won his 19th consecutive bout by twice knocking down Johnston (35-3-1, 17) in the 11th round.
