There’s Only One Ricky Hatton

Posted on 09/02/2015

On Sunday December 13th, Eve’s Trust plays host to a real national hero, Ricky “Hitman” Hatton MBE.

There's only one Ricky Hatton - imageThe Hitman is used to topping the bill in Las Vegas but this festive season he comes to the Keepmoat Stadium to help raise money for Doncaster people.

Ricky Hatton, still just 36, ruled the Light Welterweight & Welterweight divisions holding the IBF, IBO & WBA versions of the title. His successes included a huge victory over Kostya Tszyu, then widely regarded as one of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world, as well as Vegas victories over Juan Urango, Pauli Malignaggi & Jose Luis Castillo. Ricky took over 20,000 fans over to Las Vegas to battle the pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather as well as fighting in front of 55,000 at the Etihad Stadium against Juan Lazcano.

Now retired from the ring the “People’s Champ” has become an accomplished after dinner speaker, telling a blend of stories, cracking jokes and STILL entertaining the crowds.
