Former boxing ring great turned trainer and promoter, Ricky Hatton, is living up to his nickname of 'Ricky Fatton' in some style at the moment on holidays.

Ricky has got the connections to make it happen and I’ve got a good solid team behind me. All I’ve got to do is perform and sooner or later I’ll get on the bigger events.”
“I sell loads of tickets as well, which always helps. I think to get the opportunities in a few fights time, I’ll have to bring a crowd and I know I can definitely do that. All that said, I can’t look beyond Sam Wall this Friday. I don’t know much about him, but I’m comfortable with fight whoever is put in front of me because I fought in the best in the country as an amateur and I never knew who I was boxing from one day to the next in tournaments.”
