Ricky Hatton: The Body Shot King
When a body shot is done right in boxing, it hurts. When you ask a lot of people who have boxed before about whether they would rather get hit with a head shot or a body shot - 9/10 of those people would say head shot just because a head shot would rock you while the body shot hits you right on the liver, your body could shut down. The worst part is after you get hit with it, there’s a space of a couple of seconds before it hits you - all of a sudden, you just struggle with breathing. Back to Hatton now, Ricky Hatton had a fantastic career and it’s time we take a look back at his whole career.

During the time of the Great Depression - where stock prices fell and unemployment reached 25 percent, basically it was an awful time for all and during this time, Benny Lynch learned his fighting skills in carnival booths which were spread all around Glasgow during this time. Benny Lynch cemented his legacy - not only in Scottish history but flyweight boxing history.
