Hatton is preparing for the 50th bout of his professional career feeling he still has his best years in the ring ahead of him.

The 30-year-old welterweight reaches the landmark when he takes on Brook at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, on Saturday, March 17.

Hatton was unable to make the most of his opportunity to emulate his older brother Ricky by becoming a world champion a year ago when he was beaten on points by Mexico’s Saul Alvarez in a battle for the WBC light-middleweight crown.

He

says there is a mutual respect between him and undefeated 25-year-old rival Brook.
