Ricky Hatton has received his first major award as a promoter after being named European Promoter of the Year.

The Hatton Promotions President landed the prestigious accolade at a gala ceremony in Dublin on Friday night.

Former two-weight world champion Ricky said: "It is fantastic that my company has won this after just two-and-a-half years promoting.

"We have forged an excellent relationship with the EBU in that time and through our fighters being their champions. It has helped my brother Matthew and Ryan Rhodes earn world title fights.

"When I started boxing I wanted to be the best and it is the same as a promoter. We still have a long way to go, but being honored as European Promoter of the Year shows how far Hatton Promotions have come."

Hatton Promotions CEO Gareth Williams said: "I am honored that Hatton Promotions have picked up this award.

"In a short space of time, our fighters have won awards at every level. The only title we are waiting for is world title and hopefully Ryan Rhodes will deliver that on Saturday when he challenges WBC light-middleweight champion Saul Alvarez.

"Our philosophy is to deliver opportunities for our boxers. It is up to the fighters to take their chance"

Director of Boxing Richard Poxon is responsible for making the fights for Hatton Promotions talented array of fighters.

He added: "It is fantastic to get such recognition from a major and much respected governing body.

"These awards show just how much progress Hatton Promotions have made in their first two years.

"We will continue moving forwards with our boxers establishing themselves on the British, European and world scene."
