How much does Ricky Hatton make?

Comments Off on How much does Ricky Hatton make?

Ricky Hatton saves money on manager’s cut because he continues to manage himself. His dad Ray is his business adviser. ‘I don’t make a move without my dad saying,’ Hatton says. ‘When I first turned professional, I went to work for my dad. I was carpet fitting, and I was earning £150 to 200 a week. Then I turned pro at 18, and all of a sudden I was earning £3,000 (213,000 pesos) a fight. I had nine fights in my first year, so that’s not a bad living for an 18-year-old.

Comments Off on How to watch Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton and other boxing streaming online

There is so much talk about the  Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs) versus Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs) for their May 2, 2009 bout.

Just like in the past with Oscar De La Hoya’s fight arrangement disagreement over the purse split, (De La Hoya wanted 70-30, Pacquiao wanted 40), the Pacquiao Hatton fight almost did not push through with a similar disagreement over the purse.  Both parties stressed that each had the bigger crowd draw from their home country, thus each demanding a bigger cut from the Pay Per View revenues.
