Hatton Scores as BoxNation Picks Up His Title Fight

Matthew Hatton’s challenge for the IBO Welterweight Title against champion Chris Van Heerden will be televised LIVE and exclusive in the UK on the Channel of Champions BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

Hatton, younger brother of British great and former two division world champion Ricky, takes on Van Heerden in South Africa on Saturday 2nd March at the Sandton Convention Centre.

The Manchester star is coming off a first round stoppage of Michael Lomax and in 2011 he took big-hitting Mexican sensation Saul Alvarez the distance in a world title challenge, while Van Heerden hasn’t been stopped in 20 fights and is undefeated in his last four.

Hatton is delighted that his fans will get to see the fight live says it he'll give it his all to win the title.

“It’s fantastic to know that my fans will get to see my fight live in the UK on BoxNation which is the real home of British boxing on TV,” Said Hatton.

“The fight is only a couple of weeks away and everyone was asking how they could watch it so I’m really pleased that BoxNation have confirmed that they will be showing it,”

“It will be a great fight.  It’s a big ask and I’m a long way from home so I’m not expecting any favours out there.  Van Heerden is a quality fighter, he’s highly ranked in the organisations,”

“I’ve trained hard for this fight and believe I can win.  I’ve fought at a higher level that he has against the likes of Alvarez and I’ve got the experience, but it’s what I do on the night that counts.”

Van Heerden v Hatton will form one half of a big double header with action coming later that night LIVE from the Apollo Theatre, New York, with Richard Abril and Sharif Bogere challenging for the Vacant WBA World Lightweight Championship.
