Niamh's Next Step in assosication with Aspers Casino, Northampton & MGM Marbella are proud to bring you an amazing charity evening with one of the UKs all time favourite fighters Ricky Hatton.
Following on from our charity evening with Anthony Joshua in April 2016 this promises to be another incredible night raising money and awareness to fight childhood cancer.
Richard John Hatton MBE, or Ricky ‘the hitman’ Hatton is one of the UK’s most successful, and arguably the most popular British boxer of all time. Born in Stockport and raised in Hyde, Greater Manchester, where he continues to live and work today, Ricky transcended the sport of boxing to become one of the country’s most adored sportsmen.
A two weight world champion, in a 48 fight career he won the WBA (Super), IBF, IBO light-welterweight titles and the WBA welterweight title in a long and successful career. His relentless, all action, front foot style created a huge following of fanatical supporters and some of the most memorable fight nights in British boxing history.
Winning the IBF world title against the heavy favourite Kostya Tszyu in a packed MEN arena, fighting in front of 55,000 fans at the City of Manchester Stadium against Juan Lazcano and taking a travelling army of more than 30,000 fans to Las Vegas to fight Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather in December 2007 have become some of the iconic occasions in British boxing.
Ricky is a true showman and these nights really are special.
Hosted by the fantastic comedian Russ Williams The evening includes a superb 3 course meal, meet and greet plus professional photo for everyone with Ricky Hatton, an amazing charity auction and prize draw plus some other special celebrity guests joining Ricky on the night.
