The super-feather teen has huge boxing boots to fill because his old man was idolised for being a thrilling fighter but also loved for being the down-to-earth bloke everyone wanted a pint with.

Ricky enjoyed huge highs and endured bitter lows during his two-weight world title career, somehow mixing iconic wins with gallons of Guinness, ballooning up in between bouts and wearing an inflatable sumo suit to play up to his ‘Ricky Fatton’ nickname.

Now Campbell is getting everything passed down the family tree – apart from the XXL party clothes.

Hatton Jr said: “People admire my dad for his fighting and becoming a world champion.

“But they also love him because he stayed down-to-earth and very normal.

“I am really proud of both of those.

“Some fighters and a lot of successful people would get into that top position and forget about where they have come from, arrogance creeps in.

“But I feel like I can say my dad never did that and that says a lot about him as a person and that’s the way I want to be as a person.
