Ricky Hatton to host his own boxing skills workshop

RICKY HATTON will offer fight fans the chance to learn some of his boxing skills and techniques on May 10 when he hosts his own Hatton Academy workshop.

Scott Quigg and Martin Murray have already put fight fans through their paces by holding their own sessions and now it’s time for the boss to show off the circuits he uses to get his fighters in tip top condition.

During the three hour session, Ricky will provide tips to participants which they can then take away and incorporate in their own training regimes. Those taking part will also receive a signed picture from Ricky to thank them for their attendance.

“I’m looking forward to my boxing workshop and following on from our huge successes we had with the ones Martin Murray and Scott Quigg held,” Ricky said.

“I always have and always will have time for fans of mine and boxing in general. This will be great for me to do so again and I can show them a few tricks of the trade which have worked for me in the ring.”

Jon Eade, Hatton Academy’s training and educational director, said: “This is an amazing opportunity for people to get an insight into Ricky’s training.

“Ricky’s workshop is interesting because not only is he an ex-world champion boxer, but also a top class trainer.

“The bookings have been unbelievable, the workshop pretty much sold out in 24 hours with a huge mix of boxers, fans and kids.

“It is a true honour to have Ricky doing a workshop, he is still in the public’s eyes one of the best most loved boxers the UK have ever seen.”

All places for this workshop were snapped up with 24 hours of them going on sale, but details of future Hatton Academy workshops will be announced in due course.
