Ex-champ Ricky Hatton paid a cruel joke on son Campbell Hatton ahead of the youngster’s boxing debut on the Alexander Povetkin vs. Dillian Whyte 2 undercard.
Ever the joker, two-weight world ruler Hatton sat down for breakfast at their Gibraltor hotel to eat his usual staple of an English breakfast.
Enjoying a feast of eggs, bacon, and sausage, the “Hitman” was well and truly getting stuck into the best way to start his day.
Opposite to Ricky Hatton was Campbell, trying to keep his weight down to make the lightweight limit.
That didn’t stop 43-year-old grandad Ricky from teasing the father-of-one by offering him a sausage and some bacon.
Trainer Matthew Hatton, a former boxing title-holder himself, can be heard laughing in the background.
All three are on the island as part of a Matchroom contingent given special dispensation by the Gibraltar Government to travel.
Povetkin’s rematch with Whyte tops the Sky Sports Box Office bill. Hatton faces Jesus Ruiz on his debut after signing with Eddie Hearn.
