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!

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.

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.
