Matthew Hatton: I Would Relish a Junior Witter Clash

Matthew Hatton is looking to get back into the ring as soon as possible - preferably against British champion Junior Witter.

'Magic' has yet to fight for the Lonsdale Belt despite a career that has already seen him step through the ropes 50 times.

He suffered a crushing defeat to Kell Brook in May, since when he has spent time with his new family and also left trainer Bob Shannon.

He has been training with Oliver Harrison of late and while it is not yet a permanent arrangement, Hatton admits things are going well.

"I just felt it was time for a change of scenery and a change of ideas," he told Boxing News. "I really improved under Bob, he really brought me on.

"I haven't made any big commitments but things are going well. I'm just taking each day as it comes."

A lop-sided defeat to Brook appeared to leave Hatton with few options, but he still believes the best is yet to come.

"I still have lofty ambitions and I do think I can get another chance at world level," he added. "But I'm a realist, I know I've got to work my way back up.

"Obviously you've got Junior Witter as British champion and I've never fought for that title, and I would love to. With the history between Witter and the family it's a fight I'd relish."

Hatton was referring to a time when Witter repeatedly called out his brother Ricky, without ever managing to lure him into the ring.

Now you call out Witter since he's past his prime? I guess in England it would sell something.
