Ricky Hatton Stripped Of His Title?!?!?

Word is Ricky Hatton will be stripped of his IBF title if he accepts a June megafight with Jose Luis Castillo, instead of taking a mandatory clash against the winner of an eliminator between Naoufel Ben Rabah and Lovemore Ndou.

- Kostya Tszyu, out of action since June 2005, is talking comeback. The 37-year-old told Australia's Daily Telegraph that he is planning an exhibition fight in Russia and is waiting for an offer for a title shot later in the year. "They know I'm available - that's why I have not announced my retirement," said Tszyu.

- WBO cruserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli will face Vincenzo Cantatore on the Calzaghe-Manfredo card at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on April 7.

-Light heavyweight contender Chad Dawson, who will meet WBC champion Tomasz Adamek in the main event Saturday in Kissimmee, has hired Floyd Mayweather Sr. as his trainer, replacing two-time Trainer of the Year Dan Birmingham.
