Sky's new documentary on Ricky Hatton, called simply 'Hatton' is due for release August 31st.
Loved watching Ricky. A real buzz saw of a fighter. The Tszyu fight was one that stands out for me. Ricky pulled it out the bag against one of the most fearsome fighters around at the time. Great career. One of our best.
Ricky Fatton. Great boxer. Loved his Pies, Chips and Beer, and good on him. Brilliant win against Kostya.

even better low blow Kostya's weren't intentional where as Fattons was.
If anyone wants to skip it I've summarised it below.
Lickle Ricky Fatton, grew up on a council estate fighting in Vegas.
I still wonder how it would've gone if it weren't for Cortez.
I were winning that second round against Pacquiao by a country mile.
Right hook roll under.
That reads like a very bitter post. Did he ignore you when you asked him for an autograph / photo with him or something?
dont think it reads bitter its just the same old shite with these boxers books documentaries interviews podcasts articles weve heard it all before n Hatton loves blowing his own trumpet
Just a bit of a laugh pal, chill out. These celebs are a bit boring after a while.
Tbf I think it’s clear as day that he has suffered with depression though. All that crap with his family keeping stuff from him, must have been pretty crap aswell.
Apparently he’s a massive Daniel Dubois fan and like you is 100% convinced he’s going to win this weekend if that helps Jim??
Point taken. Chilling out.
cant remember what happened with family if im honest mate I rooted for hatton during his career I really pulled for him when he went to america but since retired its just the same old shite how many times can we here it fair enuff if folk want to watch it but ill give it a miss I found the other fellas message funny cos thats what it will mostly be about the same old stuff
Several sources over the years have said he didn’t get all of his purses if you know what I mean.
The reasons he fell out with Billy Graham and Warren at the time and now they are friends again.
I didn't value the british title
Its beneath me
Man of the people though
The old greats rah rah rah
Cut my fingers trying to fit a carpet
The only days work I ever did
Did I mention man of the people though
For the fans like
warren talked about it on the simon Jordan youtube channel they had a sit down
Usual rhetoric is "my dad went to prison and my mum was on drugs" makes a change for Fatton not to follow that trend.
Wanted to see his name up in lights.
Just a humble lad….
