Photo: Ricky Hatton in Top Form as He Meets Holyfield

EVANDER HOLYFIELD is the latest boxing legend to be knocked out by Hatton Health and Fitness. The five time world heavyweight champion is currently visiting Britain where he has been involved in several charity events and visiting the London 2012 Olympic Games. But Holyfield, still found time to hook up with his old friend Ricky Hatton and visit ‘The Hitman’s’ state of the art members’ gymnasium in Hyde on the outskirts of Manchester. Photo by Paul Speak/Hatton Promotions.

Hatton, who is now established as one of Britain’s top promoters joked: “Sometimes I go off to gym to train some of the lads and wonder who might pop in.” Some of the biggest names in boxing have visited the gym including Muhammad Ali, Roberto Duran, the late Joe Frazier, David Haye and Holyfield’s old rival Lennox Lewis. Hatton added: “It is a great honour that these boxing legends choose to visit Hatton Health and Fitness whenever they are in Manchester.

“Evander liked the gym, the facilities and was impressed at the plans we have for Hatton Promotions. To be honest I was in the awe of Evander when he walked in. He has been involved in some of the greatest heavyweight fights ever. And when people like him give me encouragement it only makes me want to continue being a success as a promoter and achieve good things as a trainer.”

please let wee ricki Hatton come back for another KO so he can be laughed at some more. Please come back for another embarrassing loss. But if you fight Paula no punch you could win that fight.

Hatton isn't returning to the ring imo. Probably just sick of being fat as hell. He seems to be enjoying his promoting/training, hopefully he keeps that up and stays well away from returning.
