Ricky Hatton Bibliography
Richard John "Ricky" Hatton, MBE was born 6 October 1978 and is a British former professional boxer who competed from 1997 to 2012, and currently works as a boxing promoter and trainer. During his boxing career he held multiple world titles at light-welterweight and one at welterweight, as well as the lineal light-welterweight title.
He is ranked by BoxRec as the best British light-welterweight of all time; the second best in Europe; and seventh best in the world. In 2005 he was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine and the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA).
In 2000 he won the British light-welterweight title, followed by the WBU light-welterweight title the following year; a record fifteen successful defences of the latter were made from 2001 to 2004. He reached the pinnacle of his career in 2005 when he defeated Kostya Tszyu for the unified IBF, Ring, and lineal light-welterweight titles. This was followed up later that year with a victory over Carlos Maussa to claim the WBA (Super) light-welterweight title.
He made his welterweight debut in 2006, when he won a tough fight against WBA champion Luis Collazo. A return to light-welterweight in 2007 saw him win the vacant IBF title for a second time, as well as the IBO title. In the same year, he suffered his professional loss, to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an attempt to win the WBC, Ring, and lineal welterweight titles. This loss took a severe toll on his physical and mental health, as did a second loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2009.
He put his career on a long hiatus, although rumours of a comeback continued to circulate over the following years. In 2011, he announced his retirement from the sport, but in 2012, more than three years after his last fight, he confirmed his comeback. A loss to Vyacheslav Senchenko in his first match back prompted him to immediately announce his final retirement. He has been promoted as one of the most beloved and popular British boxers of all time, with a raucaus fanbase that travelled multiple times across the Atlantic to support him.
He now works as a boxing pundit, trainer and manager and can still be seen around his home town of Manchester where he is still treated as a local legend.
