Ricky Hatton won’t be like Chris Eubank when it comes to his own son

WHEN it comes to the development of his own son’s boxing, Manchester legend Ricky Hatton has no intention of following the template laid down by Chris Eubank.

Eubank senior is constant presence around his son, Chris Eubank Jr, and a frequent spokesman for the Eubank team, especially in the run up to Junior’s clash with WBA super-middleweight champion George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series at the Manchester Arena on February 17. Junior turned professional with little significant experience as an amateur but his father has been the major influence on his progress as a professional.

Campbell Hatton, Ricky’s son, is young, only a 17 years old, but is already a promising amateur boxer. But already he looks handy and, like a chip off the block, he boxes with the same style and even at the same weight as Hatton senior did.
