Hatton, 37, reached the pinnacle of his career in 2005 when he defeated Kostya Tszyu for the unified IBF, Ring and lineal light-welterweight titles. The all-action fighter then beat Luis Collazo to become WBA Welterweight Champion in 2006.

Hatton lost big Las Vegas fights to all-time greats Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao and after retiring from boxing became a successful fight promoter.

The Mancunian is a hot ticket all over the country for after-dinner speaking.

Frank Harrington and Asa Johnson of Legend Promotions are promoting the night.

Tickets available from Frank on 07789261768 or Asa on 07497014520. Doors 7pm.
