Ricky Hatton says he’s a big fan of the one night series of Prizefighter tournaments taking place in the U.K.“ It’s an absolutely fantastic event – the mix of underdogs and kids against the fighters having their last shot at glory is sensational stuff,” said Hatton. “It’s only three rounds so tactics go out the window and you have to give it hell for leather…it’s great for a young prospect because he might have to fight a former champion with experience and I love that – I think that’s fantastic, it’s a great idea.” The next event is Prizefighter Super Middleweights on June 30.
