Rabchenko battles Tony Harrison on 7/30

RICKY HATTON has warned Tony Harrison that he will be in for a rude awakening if he dares to underestimate Sergey Rabchenko this weekend.

The pair meet in an eliminator for the IBF super-welterweight title on the undercard of the huge Santa Cruz v Frampton bill in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night (July 30).

And Hatton, who has trained Rabchenko for the past four years, believes both Harrison and US fight fans could be overlooking his fighter’s ability due to the manner of his sole defeat.


Rabchenko hoping to get title shot

SERGEY RABCHENKO says he is ready to shake things up in the US after he returned to action with a blistering performance on Friday night.

The former European and WBC Silver super-welterweight champion dropped Nicaragua’s Miguel Aguilar four times before the fight was stopped at the end of the third round in Walsall, United Kingdom.

By James Eley: Lennox Clarke blew away Richard Horton inside a round at Walsall Town Hall on Friday evening.

The Halesowen super middleweight topped the joint Black Country Boxing and Hatton Promotions’ show as he stretched his unbeaten start to life a s a professional boxer to 10-0.

Clarke came out at a ferocious speed had the usually durable Horton on the canvas with a sharp right hand within 20 seconds. The 24 year-old had his opponent down again shortly after with a left hook after measuring Horton up with a few jabs.


Ricky Hatton: “Rabchenko Can Win Over The Aussies Like I Did”

RICKY HATTON sees some similarities between his epic clash with Kostya Tsyzu nine years ago and Sergey Rabchenko’s dust up with Anthony Mundine.

The Hitman was relentless as he upset the odds by forcing the Aussie legend to quit on his stool after 11 rounds in front a raucous Mancunian crowd at the MEN Arena in June 2005.


Rabchenko ready for Mundine

SERGEY RABCHENKO believes a devastating performance against Anthony Mundine will earn him a new army of fans.

The Belarusian power-puncher knows a partisan crowd will baying for his blood when the opening bell rings at the Hisense Arena on November 12, but he’s confident that they will be singing his name by the end of the fight.
