Any concerns that Ricky Hattonʼs health is a problem at the moment were dispelled today as members of the media were invited to a training session of 'The Hitman' at Billy ʽThe Preacherʼ Grahamʼs Training Camp in Denton, Manchester, England.

Looking relaxed, Hatton - wearing hooded sweatshirt over sweat-top over tshirt and shorts - took to the ring. Shadowboxing around the canvas, he looked ʽsharpʼ and ʽquickʼ on his feet.

Billy Graham then stepped in to the ring and donning the huge black body-belt, the trainer braced himself for another gruelling session with 'The Hitman'.

Proving heʼd not lost his usual cheeky charm - Hatton occasionally ʽshovesʼ Graham back against the ropes and even the serious looking ʽPreacherʼ canʼt help but laugh at the antics! More...

"Two World Championships...One Night"

Monday in New York City, Top Rank held a press conference to announce “Two World Championships…One Night” which features WBA Welterweight Champion, Miguel Cotto, 31-0 (25), against Contender star, Alfonso Gomez, 18-3-2 (8). The co-feature will be the highly anticipated rematch between IBF Welterweight Champion, Kermit Cintron, 29-1 (27), who will look to avenge his only loss against Antonio Margarito, 35-5 (25). Both championships will take place on Saturday, April 12, 2008 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ .

Top Rank’s Bob Arum spoke highly of the fighters participating in the championship doubleheader, “It’s truly a privilege for me to be able to announce this outstanding card, I truly believe that the welterweight division is the best division in boxing," he said. "Because the people in it come to fight, not pose, not hold out their arm and are afraid to get hit, not do a dance that they practice on 'Dancing with the Stars', but guys who come to fight.”

Arum also spoke for his fighter Antonio Margarito, who did not attend the press conference, “I represent the challenger, the former WBO Champion is never in a bad fight. He fought Kermit Cintron a number of years ago, won that fight and hopes to repeat on April 12. One thing about Tony is he is always in a good fight, he is the consummate warrior and he will give his best on April 12.”

Kermit Cintron is eager to erase the images of his 2005 loss to Margarito, “I’ve been waiting for this fight for the longest time finally getting my opportunity to avenge my loss," he said. "I thank Bob Arum to have the balls to put Margarito in front of me on April 12th.” More...

Eight-Time World Champion, Roy Jones, Jr. 51-4 (38) laughed as the media sang happy birthday to him as he celebrated his 39th birthday today at Kingsway Boxing Gym in New York City in preparation for Saturday’s “Bring on the Titans” boxing card at Madison Square Garden where he will face Felix Trinidad 42-2 (35).

Jones has a special gift in mind, “The best birthday present for me would be a knock out on Saturday night. Tito’s fighting the toughest fight of his career. He picked me to get up for this fight. He knows I’m a guy who normally beats him so he knows what type of shape he’s got to get in to step into the ring with me.”

“Ain’t nobody got the speed to handle me. Only Floyd Mayweather comes close to me and he’s still 10 miles an hour slower,” said Jones as he put on an impressive display on the hand pads. More...

In preparation for Saturday’s “Bring on the Titans” boxing event at Madison Square Garden, the media was treated to a workout session of some of the fighters featured on the HBO Pay-Per-View event.

Five-Time World Champion, Felix “Tito” Trinidad, 42-2 (35), was in good spirits as he was interviewed and performed some shadowboxing. He joked as he danced around the ring pointing towards the canvas indicating that is where his opponent Roy Jones, Jr. would be when they face each other on Saturday.

Tito would tell the press, “I will carry my punch to 170 pounds. I feel strong at this weight. My hands are ready as they have always been. When I catch him, he will feel my power. I have been training for six months to make sure when I step in the ring I will be at my best. I wanted to fight at this weight and I feel stronger today than I have ever felt. I’m ready to go.” More...

This Weigh-in at the MGM Grand Arena - 5 or 6 thousand British Fans packed in to the tiered seats to support Ricky Hatton as he weighed in ahead of tomorrow nights Main Event.

I heard that some fans had tried to camp out over night at the door of the Garden Area but were sent away till morning by Security. There were rumoured to be fans arriving as early as 6.00 am this morning to ensure they had a good seat at the weighin.
When I arrived at the entrance of the Garden Arena at 11.30 am they had just opened the doors to allow fans in the arena early (as there were too many blocking the area outside the doors!).

The seating quickly filled up with fans. You can always rely on Ricky Hatton fans to sing and cheer and today they were in fine form. The ‘Band’ arrived to prompt the singing and it wasn’t long before there developed a fantastic ‘party’ atmosphere in the arena.

The atmosphere was like nothing we had ever witnessed before! I felt immensely proud to be British and so lucky to be present at such a fantastic occasion. The band played continuously, the fans sang, cheered, yelled, and clapped continuously. More...
