Son of former world champion goes distance on first outing in pros
Campbell Hatton, the boxer proudly sponsored by IntuBoxing, took a win against journeyman Jesus Ruiz after going the 4 round distance.
"I'm made up with it!" said Campbell in the post fight. "The nerves got the best of me, I didn't box at my best tonight, but you only get one debut. We knew he (Ruiz) would be durable, but didn't know that durable, I'm dead happy with it though"

Speaking about the comparisons with his dad, Campbell acknowledged the similarities with father Ricky.
"I did target the body, like my dad used to, we do have similar styles."
Trainer and uncle Matthew said he expects a better performance next time.
"We know he can do better, not a huge amateur experience, we'll see more from him moving forward".
Former world champion Ricky claimed his facemask was helping "hide the tears of pride".
"I'm so proud!" said Ricky "We've seen what he's about now, people singing there's only one Campbell Hatton!"
