Former European welterweight champion and world title challenger ‘Magic’ Matthew Hatton (43-7-2, 17KOs) talks to British Boxers in-depth about his 52 fight pro career and explains how he got into boxing and why he felt it was the right time to retire and take up his new role as a coach.

Hatton was a tough competitor in his day and shared the ring with some of the top fighters of his day including Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Kell Brook. His last fight was a close defeat to South African Chris Van Heerden for the world title.

In 2010 he unexpectedly defeated tough Italian Gianluca Branco to claim the European title which he successfully defended twice before being offered the fight against Canelo for the WBC world light-middleweight title. Hatton lost on points to Canelo but proved his toughness, pushed the Mexican all the way and won everyones respect.

After his retirement in 2013 he set up his own gym and is now a respected coach with some good rising professionals under his wing. Aky Karim asks Hatton about his career and life now after boxing as a coach, check it out on the video above..
