Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton will be in Preston later this month to sign copies of his new book.

The boxing superstar will take centre stage at Waterstone’s in the city on Wednesday May 20.

His new book ‘Ricky Hatton’s Vegas Tales’ sees him recalls the most memorable moments: from fight negotiations, through trash-talking transatlantic promotional tours, gruelling training camps, bizarre encounters with opponents, fans, A-list celebrities and boxing legends; all the way to fight-week mayhem and the epic post-fight benders that followed.

Five of Ricky’s biggest and most explosive fights took place in the boxing Mecca of Las Vegas. Tens of thousands of British fans followed him there to watch these monumental bouts, and to soak up the unique atmosphere in Sin City.

The event runs from 5.30pm. Contact the book shop for information.
