British boxing legend and fans’ favourite Ricky Hatton is heading for Scarborough.
The Hitman, as he was known during his glittering boxing career, will be at The Spa on Thursday November 10.
Hatton made his pro debut back in 1997 before going on to the win the British super lightweight title and then going on to claim world titles with the WBU, IBF and IBO.
His highest-profile fights were big-money dust-ups with legendary welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Phillipino hero Manny Pacquiao.
Despite losing both those fights, Hatton is widely regarded as one of the best British boxers of the modern era.
Tickets for the event, organised by TD Events, start at £25, with VIP tickets priced at £60 which includes a picture with Hatton, with proceedings getting under way at 7.30pm.
Comedian Jed Stone will also be entertaining the crowd, and there will be an auction and memorabilia raffle.
