MATTHEW HATTON is finally coming out of brother Ricky’s shadow in his 50th fight.

IBF international welterweight champion Hatton reaches a half-century of punch-ups tonight when he meets rising star Kell Brook at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena.

If ‘Magic Matt’ can discover the ring tricks needed to bash WBA inter-continental title holder Brook he will have proved that it’s taken more than brotherly g-love to reach the top.

Hatton, 30, said: “I still have to prove myself because of my surname, but after 50 fights I am getting there.

“It is nice that more people talk about me now as who I am and not as Ricky’s younger brother.

“I am not in his shadow. I am following in his footsteps and if I achieve a fraction of what Ricky’s done that’ll be fantastic.

“I will always have to put up with some people mentioning Ricky because he was such a great fighter. It never has bothered me and never will.

“I have had a good career by winning the European title and fighting for the world championship.”

The Manchester man has won 42 and drawn two of his 49 fights but starts as the underdog against Brook, who has won all 26 professional fights.

And Hatton said: “All the pressure is on Kell but I know that I can beat him.”

Maybe if he knocks Kell out if the 1st.

OK, simple analysis: Unless he beats a living legend like Tszyu and wins a lineal championship then gets alphabets in 2 weight classes and beats elite fighters... then he can say he moved out of Ricky's shadow.

ricky hatton was overrated but his brother is twice that to the 13th power.
