Speaking to talkSPORT ahead of the fight, the former light welterweight world champion revealed that his weight loss had inspired others and helped with his own mental health issues. 

‘I always made it hard for myself when I was in my prime, to be honest with you, things haven’t changed now that I’m 44 years of age, but it’s been so good for my well being,’ Hatton said.

Hatton’s weight has gone from 210Ibs in November 2021 to a trim 159Ibls in just under a year 

‘It’s given me a target and a goal and something to set me sights towards.

 ‘The feedback I’ve got from so many people saying, ‘Ricky, you’ve inspired me to get my weight off’…

‘People have been writing letters and getting in touch and saying, ‘Ricky how you’ve inspired us to see where you were 18 months ago’.

‘And it was well documented where I was, I was in a very bad place… so, it’s made me decided to make a lifestyle change.

 ‘I’m 44 now, I can’t keep dropping weight like I have been doing, so this is Ricky Hatton for good as far as I’m concerned.’
