BRADFORD'S hottest music act will be performing on the same night an all-time British great steps foot back into the ring after almost a decade away.

Bad Boy Chiller Crew (BBCC) are going to be strutting their stuff before Ricky Hatton hopes to do similar in the squared circle.

The former world champion returns at the age of 43 as he takes on another legend in Marco Antonio Barrera.

Hatton, who last laced up the gloves in 2012, and the Mexican, 48, are set to collide in an eight-round exhibition in Manchester on July 2.

"I can confirm my return to the ring," Hatton said on his personal Twitter account.

"Join me for a huge party night - with top music acts - in Manchester on July 2. It's not how you fall, it's how you rise..."

One of those acts, BBCC are currently in the midst of their UK tour with their escapades in the US to come in September.

The Bradford boys - Kane, Clive and Gareth Kelly (better known as GK) - will be joined by Tion Wayne and other artists to be announced.

Other fights on the card include Dan Hardy v Diego Sanchez.
