RICKY Hatton MBE will be at the Saints Superstore on this Wednesday (Oct 30) to promote his book ‘War and Peace’.
The Boxing legend will be signing copies of his best-selling autobiography from 1pm-2pm.
Retailing at £20, it tells the story of one of British boxing’s true icons.
From a Manchester council estate to the bright lights of Las Vegas, Ricky Hatton experienced incredible highs in his career, including one of the greatest ever wins by a British boxer, over the IBF Light Welterweight champion Kostya Tszyu.
But heavy defeats to two legends of the ring, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, brought him quickly down to earth to face a new set of battles against depression, drink and drugs.
Through it all, however, Ricky Hatton has remained the same charismatic, funny, eloquent man – a man who boxing fans have always taken to their hearts.
A man who has survived a lifetime of wars both in and out of the ring, and who in defeat has finally found something close to peace.
Get along to the store on Wednesday to meet one of sport’s all time greats.
