Ricky Hatton's role Model is Oscar De La Hoya - Boxing
By Johnny Benz (Feb 17, 2008) Doghouse Boxing  
Ricky Hatton has his heart set on becoming a promoter in Boxing. So serious is Hatton, that he has already applied to the British Boxing Board of Control for a promoter's licence. Hatton would love to take Amir Khan from Promoter Frank Warren and manage the young up and coming superstar.

In a recent Interview with Peter Higgs of the dailymail.co.uk, Hatton indicated he had no immediate plans to quit his own professional boxing career but plans to use his promotional skills as a way to keep him in the centre
of British boxing.

"As long as I'm still involved in boxing that will stop me being tempted to make a comeback," said Hatton.

Hatton went on to add that his role model for his new venture is Oscar De La Hoya.

"I've watched how Golden Boy Promotions acts and Oscar is like a friend to all his fighters," said Hatton to the Daily Mail. "That's very rare in boxing. I have had the misfortune to have had quite bad dealings with promoters."
