Former world champion turned promoter Ricky Hatton made his Australian promotion debut on Saturday with Right Cross Entertainment at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane, Queensland.
The show featured two of Australia’s London Olympic boxers Damien Hooper and Cameron Hammond.
Light heavyweight Hooper looked good in stopping veteran Garth Murray to inside five rounds. Hatton said of Hooper afterwards. “His potential is limitless. He could be as great as other Aussie heroes such as Jeff Fenech and Kostya Tszyu.”
Hammond won his second professional fight, convincingly outpointing new Zealand light middleweight Daniel Roy Maxwell by scores of 60-54, 60-54, 60-54.
