Ricky Hatton / Nigel Benn mitt session (photos/video link)
Ricky Hatton and Nigel Benn went through a mitt workout on Tuesday after sharing the ring at the Manchester trainer’s gym in Hyde.
Benn, 51, looked as sharp as ever as the former super middleweight world champion participated in a playful session with Hatton.
As exclusively revealed by WBN on Monday, Hatton and Benn set-up a meeting to discuss the ‘Hitman’ potentially training Conor Benn, Nigel’s son, for the 2016 Olympics.
Both now coaching in their own right, Benn has turned to Hatton in order for Conor, 18, to be in the best shape he can be for next year’s tournament.
The Younger Benn hopes to represent Barbados in Brazil and is set to head to the UK in June.
