Start time, live stream and talkSPORT commentary – Hurricane promises ‘best performance yet’ on Anthony Joshua undercard
Campbell Hatton will be redeemable when he takes on Louis Fielding on Anthony Joshua’s undercard against Jermaine Franklin tonight.
The 22-year-old, who is the son of British boxing legend Ricky Hatton, will look to extend his 10-0 record (3 KOs) in his first eight-round bout.

But “Hurricane” will still feel like it has a point to prove on the big stage after its last outing on an AJ card in London.
Hatton made his boxing arc almost exactly two years ago in March 2021, beating Jesus Ruiz on points on Alexander Povetkin’s undercard against Dillian Whyte II.
Just six months and two fights later, he was thrust into the spotlight against fellow actor Sonni Martinez at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The general consensus among the fans after the fight was that Hatton had lost, but controversially referee Marcus McDonnell scored 58-57 in favor of the Briton.
Hatton heeded Chris Eubank Jr’s advice on punditry to forget about the big stage and instead seek to build his record at smaller shows.
The Mancunian’s next outing in December 2021 delivered his first knockout when he dropped Hungarian fighter Attila Csereklye in Spain.
Hatton has since had a very successful 2022 capped by four straight wins, the last of which was a devastating first-round knockout over Daniel Bartos in Abu Dhabi.
His last six rounds came in his win over Michel Gonxhe in Liverpool last month, with Hatton now ready to show off his improved skills when he returns to London.

Hatton vs Fielding: What was said?
Speaking at the undercard press conference, Hatton said: “It’s basically instant rotation, which is exactly what we want!
“We’re showing improvement every time we’re on the eight rounds and that’s going to bring out the best in me.
“I think I will be much better on long fights because all my mistakes happen when I rush things and having a few extra rounds is just going to benefit me.
“So I think we’re going to see the best performance yet this weekend.”
