Campbell Hatton fight: What’s been said?
Campbell Hatton: “I’m not trying to get away from my name because I’m proud of who I am and proud of what my dad and Matthew have done.
“With good performances and working hard, people will start seeing Campbell Hatton and not Ricky’s lad.”
Ricky Hatton: “He is going into the hardest game of all, and on top of what I did. That is massive pressure. I did it so he didn’t have to, so he deserves a pat on the back.
“If I didn’t think he could handle it, I would not let him turn pro. Trust me, just cos he’s sat here being polite, don’t be fooled by that. He’ll give it full welly. If he didn’t give it his all, Matthew would open the door for me and I would kick him through it.
“I’m excited. The first time you get hit on the nose in a boxing gym you either go ‘no thanks’ or ‘phwoar, I’ll have a bit of that’. The minute he picked up a set of gloves the whole family looked at each other and thought ‘oh s**t’. I knew what was going to happen.”
