Campbell Hatton, son of boxing legend Ricky, won his professional debut with a four-round points decision on Saturday night in Gibraltar.

The 20-year-old got the job done as his legendary father watched nervously from ringside.

He walked to the ring with Man City’s ‘Blue Moon’ as his ring walk music, emulating his father’s old entrances.

The fight began with Campbell coming out firing, utilising his nervous energy to his advantage.

He hammered Ruiz with a variety of punches, including a body assault that also evoked memories of his father.

In the second round, Ruiz attempted to throw back but was already bloodied by the 20-year-old’s punches.

The body shots continued to break the Spaniard down as he backed up against the ropes.

This continued into round three with Campbell firmly in control.

The power in both men’s punches deteriorated as they began to tire somewhat.

Campbell appeared raw and wild at times, but this was to be expected in his first ever pro fight.

In the final round, Campbell pushed for the stoppage but was unable to secure it.

He won every round 40-36 on the referee’s scorecard.

Campbell said post-fight: “I don’t think I boxed my best, I know I can do a lot better than that.

“I think, as much as I tried not to, the nerves got to me a bit.

It can only get better next time.

“I knew he’d be durable, but I was surprised just how durable he was.

“But I’m dead happy with it.

“I have a lot of the strengths that my dad had and one of them is the body punches, that’s a big part of my game.

“If I can get that to where my dad is, which I think I can, I don’t think there’ll be many who last with it.”

A proud Ricky added: “I knew these masks would come in handy because no-one could see me crying.

“They were singing ‘Blue Moon’ and ‘There’s Only One Campbell’ Hatton.

It’s a very proud night for me as a dad, very proud for us as a family.

“He’s only had a handful of amateur fights, only been doing it a few years and he’s already gone professional at 20.

“It’s a good learning fight, the opponent was perfect, very durable.”

Saturday’s fight night looks promising, as Dillian Whyte goes head to head with Alexander Povetkin in their 12 round heavyweight rematch.

But this isn’t the only fight viewers will be keen to witness, as Ricky Hatton’s son Campbell is also set to make his professional debut.

World champion Hatton has prepared his son well for the upcoming fight – as Campbell has been trained by his uncle Matthew Hatton.

So, who is Campbell Hatton, what success has he had in his amateur career and what has he said ahead of his debut tonight (27 March)? This is what you need to know.

Who is Campbell Hatton?

19-year-old Hatton is the son of former world champion light-welterweight boxer Ricky Hatton and is a father to two-year-old daughter, Lyla Nevaeh.

He began boxing seriously at the age of 14, and was raised in greater Manchester.

He is reportedly a Manchester City fan.

Hatton has told how from a young age he would regularly watch his dad and uncle Matthew train, but didn’t consider a boxing career until his mid-teens.

He is now being trained by Matthew, who also had a successful career including challenging Canelo Alvarez for the WBC title in 2011.

Hatton told how he has been training incredibly hard since a young age, as he “shares the same passion for boxing” as his dad.

He claims he has always trained twice a day, everyday in order to be the best.

In December, he signed with Matchroom Boxing and Eddie Hearn, and is also signed with Anthony Joshua’s management company.

Campbell told the Independent that he was always pushed towards a career in boxing by his trainers, but his dad revealed he was less supportive.

Ricky told TalkSport: “I never wanted him to go into boxing in the first place.

“That’s the reason why I did it; so my family didn’t have to do that.

But it is something he wanted to do and listen, it will be a very nervous time.

But he is confident in his performance, adding: “I wouldn’t let him go into the game if I didn’t think he had half a chance of doing something because there are easier professions to go in than this game, as we all know.”

Saturday’s debut will be his first chance to prove he is up to professional standards, as he takes to the ring as ‘The Hurricane’.

How has he performed as an amateur boxer?

Starting out as an amateur aged 14, Hatton first began training at Northside ABC in Clayton, where his grandfather took him.

He had a handful of fights for the club, before moving to Roy Richardson’s Boxing Academy, in Stockport.

Hatton won the National Novice Title and two North West Titles, which led to him securing more fights with national and international champions.

He said that this “brought me on massively,” and allowed him to acquire a more professional style to his technique, which he believes has stood him in good stead for his debut.

Hatton said he has “stepped it up a gear” and is in his best shape yet, as he prepares for Saturday’s fight.

Who is he fighting tonight?

On 27 March, Hatton will take on 32 year old Mexican, Jesus Ruiz.

Their fight will take place during the Dillian Whyte-Alexander Povetkin event, in Gibraltar.

Ruiz has been a pro since 2017, but has yet to win a pro-fight as he has not boxed in 20 months, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

What has Hatton said ahead of Saturday’s fight?

Despite the pressure to live up to the legendary expectations of his dad, Hatton seems level headed about his upcoming debut.

He said: “People will make comparisons but I just have to concentrate and go in there and do what I can do.

“My dad had such a great career and I want to do the same myself but it’s not going to happen overnight.

“I’ve got time on my side and you don’t need to rush things, we can do it professionally and we just have to be patient.

“My dad was exciting and I do believe I will bring some excitement but realistically I’ve got to learn my game first.”

However, he also told Sky Sports that he isn’t nervous, as he has prepared well for the fight, adding: “I’m so confident…

It can’t go wrong now.”

Asked for his prediction on what will happen on his pro debut, he replied: “Pain!”

Where can I watch the Hatton-Ruiz fight?

The super-featherweight bout will take place as part of Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin undercard on Saturday, March 27.

The ‘Rumble on the Rock’ will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office, at a cost of £19.95.

The ring walk is expected at around 6.30pm UK time, the main event is expected to take place at around 10.30pm.
