‘The Hitman’ has launched Hatton Promotions Asia Pacific where he plans to feature top boxers from the Far East and Australasia.
The first show will be staged at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Tuesday December 11.
Top of the bill will be a clash between Australian Lucas Browne and England’s Richard Towers – two friends promoted by Hatton Promotions.
The unbeaten pair became close when they sparred together earlier this year at Towers training base in Sheffield.
But friendship will be forgotten for ten rounds when they meet, with a shot at Commonwealth champion David Price for whoever wins the eliminator.
Hatton who boxes Vyacheslav Senchenko at Manchester Arena on Saturday November 24 said: “What a fight to start our new promotional company, and how much more could be at stake.
“Lucas and Richard are both punchers and hungry for success and it will show on the night.
“The goal of Hatton Promotions Asia Pacific is to bring world class boxing events to different cities in Asia and build a world class stable in the region.”
Browne, 33, has won all 13 contests with 12 wins coming by KO and last boxed in June stopping Hastings Rasani inside a round at Manchester Velodrome.
Towers, 33, has a 100% record in 14 fights and the 6ft 8in puncher came through a tough fight against Gregory Tony on the same bill winning the EU title in nine rounds.
The full undercard will be confirmed in the coming weeks. For more details on the card please go to http://hattonboxing.asia/newsletter/
