Ricky “The Hitman Hatton”

Richard John Hatton MBE, or Ricky ‘the hitman’ Hatton is one of the UK’s most successful, and arguably the most popular British boxer of all time. Born in Stockport and raised in Hyde, Greater Manchester, where he continues to live and work today, Ricky transcended the sport of boxing to become one of the country’s most adored sportsmen.

A two weight world champion, in a 48 fight career he won the WBA (Super), IBF, IBO light-welterweight titles and the WBA welterweight title in a long and successful career. His relentless, all action, front foot style created a huge following of fanatical supporters and some of the most memorable fight nights in British boxing history.

Ricky opens up about everything from when his problems with depression started after his defeat to Floyd Mayweather JR, to how it progressed and how he got through it and is able to tell the story today
