Publisher's Summary

Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas...what could possibly go wrong?

Ricky Hatton's brilliance as a boxer, his down-to-earth demeanour and his live-wire sense of humour have made him a national treasure. Five of Ricky's biggest and most explosive fights took place in the boxing Mecca of Las Vegas. Tens of thousands of British fans followed him there to watch these monumental bouts,and to soak up the unique atmosphere in Sin City.

In Ricky's Hatton's Vegas Tales, he recalls the most memorable moments: from fight negotiations through trash-talking transatlantic promotional tours, gruelling training camps, bizarre encounters with opponents, fans, A-list celebrities and boxing legends all the way to fight-week mayhem and the epic postfight benders that followed.

With contributions from family, friends and the journalists who know him best, tributes from Mexican boxing legends Oscar De La Hoya and Marco Antonio Barrera, plus the hilarious recollections of rock 'n' roll superstar Noel Gallagher, this is an anecdote-driven romp through all the highs and lows of Ricky's Vegas fights and the madness that preceded and followed each bout. What goes down in Vegas stays in Vegas...until now!

    Story
    "Brilliant insight. You don't t have to be a boxing fan to enjoy this book."

    This is not a round by round analysis of Ricky's life or boxing career. It is simply the story of his time in Vegas and the appreciation he has of the opportunities boxing has given him. It is funny, humbling and very down to earth.

    I enjoyed it from start to finish and could listen to it again.

    Story
    "It's a Knockout!"

    I am already a huge fan of Ricky but after listening to this book, my admiration for the fella has increased twice fold. The book gives a great insight to the parts of his Vegas years we didn't get to see, and in true Ricky style, he had me laughing out loud as he remains a down to earth bloke, despite his hugely successful boxing career. One of the easiest listens I had the pleasure of.

    "Peoples Champion"

    Ricky told his story warts and all which was a refreshing change to normal biographies !

    The story was a little disjointed but never the less a great read and it was also well narrated.

    "Very good listen"

    I've been a huge fan of Ricky's for many years so was very excited to listen to this. I cannot say it disappointed, had me laughing and reminiscing throughout the book, very good performance too. My only gripe is that the overall narrative seemed to lack any sort of structure at times.

    Story
    "There's only one Ricky Hatton"

    Really enjoyed this book
    Sure he's not the greatest fighter , but being from near Hyde myself I know he is still the down to earth character he portrays
    He was an exciting fighter and the book takes you back to those recent times book was entertaining even if the accents we're a bit dodgy from the narrator
    Enjoyed the story and would recommend it if you're interested in boxing
    A very charismatic chap
