Campbell Hatton has got his professional boxing career off to a winning start with a debut victory.

Hatton, following in the footsteps of his two-weight world champion father Ricky and uncle Matthew, secured a points win over opponent Jesus Ruiz in their four-round contest.

Fighting at lightweight, the prospect landed punches similar to some of his father’s trademark body shots in a scrappy opening round, wearing sky blue gloves gifted to him by boyhood club Manchester City.

Ruiz, who had lost his previous 10 bouts as a professional, took more punishment to the body as the fight progressed with Hatton putting plenty of power in his left hooks.

While forced to take a few shots himself, perhaps intent on impressing on his big night, the teenager secured a clean sweep of the judges’ scorecards to get the win.

‘The Hurricane’ Hatton was fighting on the Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin undercard out in Gibraltar.

The 19-year-old started boxing at the age of 14, winning a National Novice title and two North West titles before turning professional last December.

The prospect is trained by his uncle with his father set to manage his burgeoning career.

Ricky Hatton was on the UK’s most beloved sportsman, transcending the sport and creating historic nights in boxing in the UK and in Las Vegas where he was followed by legions of fans.

Hatton Snr fought 48 times, winning world titles in two different weight classes with two of his three defeats coming against boxing royalty in Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao.
