Ricky Hatton has tipped new IBF World Bantamweight Champion Paul Butler to become a household name.

Britsh great Hatton said last week that Butler was the new Hitman before his title challenge against Stuart Hall at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Saturday night.

The Ellesmere Port ace won by split decision to win the title in just his 16th fight - the least amount of fights an English boxer has taken to win a world title.

In an exclusive interview for, Hatton said, I think Paul Butler can become a household name,

Hes achieved his dreams of becoming a world champion and hes done it in rapid quick time!

Its a testimony to his ability that hes been able to win a world title in such a short space of time

Ive followed him from day one and I always thought hed win a world title but never thought hed win one this quick, but thats why the next move has to be correct,

And no ifs or buts, hes in the best possible hand in Frank Warren to lead his career in the right way.
