Boxing cult hero looks unrecognisable in throwback snap with long flowing locks and cheeky smile wearing dungarees.
Boxing fans were left stunned after a throwback snap of a cult hero emerged online. The photo, which was taken in the early 2000s, shows the fighter with long flowing locks and a cheeky smile wearing dungarees.
The fighter in question is none other than former world champion, Ricky Hatton. The British boxer, who was known for his aggressive style and relentless work rate, was a fan favourite during his heyday.
Hatton, who was born in Stockport, England, began boxing at the age of 11 and quickly rose through the ranks. He won his first professional fight in 1997 and went on to become a two-weight world champion.
He was known for his aggressive style and relentless work rate, which saw him become a fan favourite. He was also known for his cheeky smile and long flowing locks, which he often wore in the ring.
The throwback snap of Hatton has left fans stunned, as it shows a very different side to the fighter. In the photo, Hatton is seen wearing dungarees and sporting long flowing locks, which is a far cry from his usual look.
Hatton retired from boxing in 2012 after a career that saw him win 45 of his 48 fights. He is now a successful businessman and is still a popular figure in the boxing world.
The throwback snap of Hatton has been shared widely online, with many fans commenting on how different he looks. It is a reminder of how far he has come since his days as a cult hero in the boxing world.
