Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton has been retired from his active professional boxing career for some time now.

He’s received the MBE honor from his native UK for his services to boxing that saw him at one time become a two-weight champion and still to this day probably the most loved fighter that ever lived.

Speaking on social media today he’s revealed that he’s now actually become ‘Lord’ Ricky Hatton in a chance of good fortune.
