Ricky Hatton flaunts new figure after body transformation before comeback fight

Ricky Hatton has flaunted his new figure after his dramatic body transformation ahead of his exhibition fight against Marco Antonio Barrera.

The 43-year-old former two-weight world champion is set to return to the boxing ring on July 2 for the first time in 10 years after his final professional bout in 2012. Ahead of his return, Hatton has been training and getting back into fighting shape at his gym in Manchester having piled on the pounds since retiring.

Hatton was even mistaken for his son Campbell by fans after recent training footage showed the Hitman's new figure ahead of the upcoming fight.

Since retiring after his loss to Vyacheslav Senchenko a decade ago, Hatton had enjoyed retirement and put on weight to the point he even referred to himself as "Ricky Fatton".

However, ahead of the fight with 48-year-old Barrera, who retired in 2011 with a professional record of 67-7, Hatton has shown off his leaner physique.

Following a session on Monday, Hatton showed himself looking slim in a tracksuit on his Instagram page, captioning the picture "Second session done".

Will Ricky Hatton win on his comeback to boxing? Let us know in the comments section below.

He is almost unrecognisable from a viral pic of him and heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury from 2017, where the pair both flaunted their larger physiques in the gym.

Hatton opened up on the image last month, telling Jewson: “Ricky Fatton was famous for losing weight but I think Tyson even beat me there. 12 stone?

"Oh my Lord. That shows you what a bad place Tyson was in.

“When you ask me what would you say to people with depression, I’d say: ‘have a look at that picture. The size of us two. Look where he was and where he is now. The bad times they don’t last forever.’”

Prior to retiring, Hatton accumulated a professional record of 45-3, with his only losses coming to Senchenko, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

He won world titles at both light-welterweight and welterweight, with his 21-year-old son Campbell also now a professional fighter. Campbell Hatton has a record of 7-0 since turning professional back in 2021.
