Chat with Ricky Hatton
Hatton will knock gloves with fellow junior welterweight Jose Luis Castillo Saturday, June 23 live from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on HBO (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).
Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton enters the ring at 42-0 with 30 knockouts and is a big star across the Atlantic in England. He made his Las Vegas debut in January, defeating Juan Urango in a 12-round decision. It was just his fourth career fight in the United States. Hatton will face the two-time lightweight champion Castillo (55-7-1, 47 KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico.
Back in January, Hatton was recognized by the Queen of England, receiving the title MBE (Member of the British Empire). The ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace and Hatton is now formally known as Ricky Hatton, MBE.
