West Midlands - The Presidents Christmas Sporting Lunch with Ricky Hatton

Venue: Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham

Join the West Midlands Regional President Gary Newbon MBE for his Christmas Sporting Lunch as he goes a few rounds with boxing legend Ricky Hatton MBE.

Gary will be joined by other guests from the world of TV entertainment and sport; ‘Big’ Ron Atkinson, David Bradley, Actor, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter etc, Celebrity Auctioneer, Charles Hanson and others.

Our guest speaker, Ricky Hattan MBE is guaranteed to ‘knock your block off’ with his memories and stories looking back at his fabulous boxing career.

He held multiple world championships at light-welterweight and one at welterweight. In 2000, Hatton won the British light-welterweight title, followed by the WBU title the following year; he made a record fifteen successful defenses of the latter from 2001 to 2004, reaching the pinnacle of his career in 2005 by defeating Kosta Tszyu for the IBF, Ring and Lineal titles.

This was followed up later that year with a victory over Carlos Maussa to claim the WBA (Super) title, thereby becoming a unified light-welterweight world champion.
