Steve Lillis: Exclusive - Ricky Hatton to Train Anthony Ogogo

05 Feb 2013

Ricky Hatton is being lined up to train Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo.

Anthony Ogogo

BoxNation understands that the London 2012 hero will spend a week training at 'The Hitman's' gym on the outskirts of Manchester to see if a partnership could work.

Ogogo, 24, has turned professional with American promotional outfit Golden Boy and will make his debut in late April or early May.

Golden Boy have given their blessing to the Lowestoft boxer teaming up with former two-weight world champion Hatton, who is Britain's most popular fighter ever.

Ogogo, who is the face of fast food chain Subway, and starred in reality TV shows, captured public imagination during last summer's Olympics.

He shocked world number one Evhen Khytrov in his first contest and reached the semi-final stage where he lost to eventual gold medallist Esquiva Falcao Florentino.

Hatton is carving out a successful career as a trainer and his greatest success so far has come with European light-middleweight champion Sergey Rabchenko.

He is also promoting his stable of fighters and is currently seeking a new TV deal for them.
