i think ricky hatton is one of my favourite sportsmen at the minute. which is a ridiculous thing for me to say because i’ve got so many!!

so we bought the fight last night, invited a load of guys around, ordered in some pizza and stayed up until after 4am to watch the big fight.

ricky was well beaten by a better opponent but he gave a decent enough performance. however his attitude was fantastic. humble as ever, cracking the jokes and determined to keep going. sadly the same can’t be said for mayweather!

despite the result, it was a great fight to watch, and a really great way to wind down after speaking at mannafest in belfast last night. it was a real privilege to get to share to so many young people at an event that meant so much to me as a teenager. really enjoyed doing it…
