Young boxing talent trains at Ricky Hatton’s gym
Promising young boxer Jordan Gill spent five days at Ricky Hatton’s Gym during the Schools Amateur Boxing Association (SABA) Summer Camp.
The 16-year-old from Chatteris joined 23 boxers from around the country at the programme. Ray Hatton, Ricky’s father, gave advice and guidance to the talented youngsters who trained three to four times a day.
The England international said: “I learnt a lot about technique and skill and it was hard work.
“We did a lot of fitness and some of the other lads were sick. Despite that we all enjoyed it and it was a good laugh at times too.”
The Chatteris Amauter Boxing Club (ABC) star sparred several rounds with Mark Heffron who recently signed a professional contract with American promoter Gary Hyde.

Gill was presented with the most skillful boxer award at the end of the week and is now looking forward to putting his new skills to use in the upcoming season.
He added: “I got the award last year too so I’m very happy. It shows that I keep getting better. It’s the most prestigious award to win at the camp so I am quite proud.”
