Ricky Hatton Summary

Ricky Hatton: The Real Hitman - The Official Fly-on-the-wall Diary of a Champion by Dominic McGuinness

For over four months, day in, day out, sports journalist, Dominic McGuinness and award winning photographer, Ben Duffy, were given unprecedented access to Ricky Hatton, to record every aspect of his life. The result is this unique book, which gives a fascinating, fly-on-the-wall view of the world of the boxing champion. It provides a comprehensive, fully illustrated account of the mental and physical preparations necessary to compete at the very highest level whilst giving an insight into the unique atmosphere and colour of the Phoenix Camp Gym, the international boxing world, Ricky's family, his mates and the celebrity circuit. The book explores how Ricky - a man who admits to liking a pint and who gains around three stone after each fight - gets himself physically and mentally fit for a 12 round world title bout. Contributions from all those who work with Ricky Hatton on a daily basis, including his father and manager, Ray Hatton, his trainer, Billy (The Preacher) Graham and fitness and nutrition expert Kerry Kayes, as well as his sporting and celebrity friends such as England cricketer, Andrew Flintoff, Manchester City Manager, Stuart Pearce and world renown boxing promoter, Don King. The book will appeal to the many thousands of passionate Hatton fans; all boxing aficionados; anybody interested in sport and fitness; as well as those who simply want to know what it takes to make it to the top.

Ricky Hatton Reviews

"He's so single minded in where he wants to go. You can tell by his fights he never cuts corners in his training regime, he never has an easy fight and at this moment in time I don't see a more exciting fighter anywhere. Not only is he a winner, it's the style in which he wins." Stuart Pearce, Manager, Manchester City FC "Anyone with any interest in sport and in boxing will love Ricky Hatton 'cos he's the complete package, the real deal and the best thing that's happened to British boxing for a long, long time." Steve Collins, former World Super Middleweight Champion. "This is a great book, something I've wanted for a long time. It tells boxing fans what it really takes to be a champion fighter. I'm flattered that I'm the subject of it." Ricky Hatton "Ricky is a diamond in the rough and I would love to polish him! He's capturing the minds of the people and I love the little guy. He's a refreshing breeze in the sport of boxing" Don King, Boxing Promoter "The discipline these boxing lads have is amazing. All the training and how fit they are - it's tough work. You've got to be mentally strong to get in the ring with another bloke from the other corner who wants to punch you. You've got to be tough mentally and physically and obviously Ricky is." Andrew Flintoff, England Cricket Captain"
