WBA/IBF light welter champion Ricky Hatton took a break from his busy training schedule on Thursday to meet with heavyweight legend Mike Tyson. The two pressure fighters got on like a house on fire at a popular restaurant in Hatton’s hometown of Manchester, England. “The Hitman” is coming off an impressive destruction of Carlos Maussa almost four months ago and the devastating Fight Academy/Banner promoted body puncher remains on the hunt for an opponent for his American debut, scheduled to take place on May 13 at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut with HBO televising.
