About Ricky Hatton
Ricky Hatton net worth is currently estimated at $40 million dollars. Not only he is one of the most accomplished professional boxers in the world, he is also incredibly popular among the audience. And I think there are at least three reasons why the fans love Hatton so much. First of all, it’s because he loves them back. Second, Ricky is really down to earth and feels a natural connection with the audience. In one of his interviews the millionaire has said. “I’m a Mancunian born and bred and I feel I’m no different to the man in the crowd and it’s nice to reward them. I want to become a great champion”. And finally the third, he has a great sense of humor and uses it brilliantly when faced with losses and other difficult situations. For example, when one of his greatest competitors (and one might even say „nemesis“) Floyd Mayweather knocked him down in the 10th round with a check hook, the boxer claimed he has simply slipped.
Now in order for you to get a better understanding way Ricky Hatton net worth is much greater than the fortunes of other professional boxers, let me cite you a few of his greatest accomplishments and career highlights. He is IBF Light Welterweight Champion, WBA Light Welterweight Champion, WBA Welterweight Champion, BBBofC Central Area Light Welterweight Champion, WBO Inter-Continental Light Welterweight Champion, WBA Inter-Continental Light Welterweight Champion and BBBofC British Light Welterweight Champion. In addition to this, Ricky holds a couple of Minor World Titles: he is WBU Light Welterweight Champion and IBO Light Welterweight Champion. There is almost no doubt that if he had not chosen Professional boxing as his career, Ricky Hatton net worth would not be as high as it is today. And as you might know, professional sport was not the only job Ricky has tried. Right upon leaving school the teenager joined his family‘s carpet business. But his experience at the firm was unfortunate, to say the least: Ricky cut four of his fingers with a Stanley knife. Following this accident his father made sure he stays away from knives – he made him a salesman.
Now enough about Ricky Hatton net worth and his professional career, let’s speak about his personal life. As I have already mentioned, his family owns a carpet business. In fact, Ricky’s mother works at the carpet stall on Glossop Market to this day, while his father became his manager. Ricky is not the only athlete in the family – his younger brother Matthew is a professional boxer too. Although Matthew has had a several major victories during the period 2006-2010, he has not been as successful as his sibling. And what about Ricky‘s love life? For a long time he has been in a relationship with a girl named Claire, with whom he had a son. And as for today, he is in a relationship with Jennifer Dooley.
