Evander ‘The Real Deal’ Holyfield visits Ricky Hatton
Evander Holyfield is the latest boxing legend to be knocked out by Hatton Health and Fitness.
The
five time world heavyweight champion is currently visiting Britain
where he has been involved in several charity events and visiting the
London 2012 Olympic Games.
But
Holyfield, still found time to hook up with his old friend Ricky Hatton
and visit ‘The Hitman’s’ state of the art members’ gymnasium in Hyde on
the outskirts of Manchester.
Hatton,
who is now established as one of Britain’s top promoters joked:
“Sometimes I go off to gym to train some of the lads and wonder who
might pop in.”

Some
of the biggest names in boxing have visited the gym including Muhammad
Ali, Roberto Duran, the late Joe Frazier, David Haye and Holyfield’s old
rival Lennox Lewis.
Hatton
added: “It is a great honour that these boxing legends choose to visit
Hatton Health and Fitness whenever they are in Manchester.
“Evander liked the gym, the facilities and was impressed at the plans we have for Hatton Promotions.
“To
be honest I was in the awe of Evander when he walked in. He has been
involved in some of the greatest heavyweight fights ever.
“And
when people like him give me encouragement it only makes me want to
continue being a success as a promoter and achieve good things as a
trainer.”
