Hatton urges his fans to support Amir


Recommended Posts

Ring veteran Ricky Hatton has urged fans to get behind Amir Khan ahead of his title defence against Irishman Paul McCloskey on April 16. Calling the light-welterweight champion a pound-for-pound king in the making, Hatton told Boxingscene.com, ‘Mayweather and Pacquiao aren’t going to be there forever and when they pass the torch on, who better to take that pound-for-pound spot than Amir Khan?


‘I had a lot of wonderful nights at the MEN Arena and Amir Khan is the new kid on the block. He’s just come off the Fight of the Year and it’s nice for British fans to see him come back to Britain and show them what he’s learned.


‘I had an army of supporters that I feel very, very proud of and I just urge boxing fans, if you are a genuine boxing fan and you were a Ricky Hatton fan for all the qualities I had, you really should come and support this young man because he’s made from the same cloth.’
