The hitman, who rose to fame between fights, has abstained from alcohol, junk food and 12 cups of tea a day – and has stuck to a strict diet.

Hatton has lost over two stone in seven weeks as a result.

Hatton spoke about his diet ahead of the fight, telling British Boxing TV: “I like beer, that’s a known fact, but you can’t. I think that’s the main thing with the weight.

“If you drink beer seven days a week, you’re not going to walk around with a six-pack.

“I just think it makes sense to eat the right things small and often and to exercise regularly.

“Some days I’ve been like, ‘Can I have a day off?’ and then I figured I’d slow down and run to work up a sweat.

“I do two workouts a day, so my metabolism is always in high gear. Cut back on the treats, I usually drink 12 cups of tea a day but it only has to be a one off.

“I think the best thing is willpower and a nutritionist is only as good as the boy advising him and I think it all comes down to your own personal discipline.”

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has expressed pride in Hatton for his weight loss.

Fury, 33, posted on Instagram: “Get up my boy!

“Very proud of @rickyhitmanhatton for losing all that weight and getting fit again.”

Hatton was also able to train with his 21-year-old son Campbell as part of his training camp.

Sharing two pictures of the family sparring, the beaming dad wrote: “Today has been a very emotional day for me as a dad.

“Couldn’t be prouder of @campbellhatton anyway, as everyone knows…

“But I never thought I would see him turn pro and I especially never thought I would train with him at a training camp.

“Had a lot of proud times over the years…that was up there.”
