The People'S Champion Through The Eyes Of His Opponents
de Paul Mason
Sobre o livro
Charts the career of one of Britain's best-loved boxers, as seen through the eyes of 12 key opponents who helped shape the legend of Ricky 'the Hitman' Hatton. From his professional debut at a Widnes leisure centre in 1997, to the Manchester star's final fight in an emotional comeback in his Manchester Arena fortress, you'll get the inside story from a dozen men who dared to test their mettle against Hatton. The book delves into the pre- fight build-up and psychological preparation of his opponents, before examining fight night itself, what it was like to go toe to toe with the Hitman and what happened afterwards.
