Anthony Joshua has signed Campbell Hatton to his management and communications team ahead of his pro debut
AJ's management team will guide the career of debutant Campbell Hatton, who makes his professional debut on the Alexander Povetkin vs Dillian Whyte rematch bill on March 6, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
Campbell Hatton, son of former world champion Ricky Hatton, turned professional with Matchroom Boxing last December and has now taken a further step forward in his fledgling career by joining Anthony Joshua's management and communications team, 258 MGT, ahead of his eagerly awaited pro bow.
The 19-year-old Manchester-based fighter also linked up with leading communications agency SoapBox London.
Hatton joins 258's stellar management roster that includes Anthony Joshua, Joshua Buatsi, Lawrence Okolie, Ramla Ali and Souleymane Cissokho.
"I am incredibly excited to be joining 258 Management & SoapBox for my pro career," said Campbell Hatton.
"My dad has done a brilliant job at guiding me so far and I will continue to seek his advice as well as work in the gym with my uncle Matthew. I cannot wait for the first bell March 6."
Campbell's father and boxing manager Ricky said: "Campbell's dream is to bring another world boxing title back to Manchester.
"The dream is obviously in Campbell's hands and ultimately it's down to him, but given time that's what he'll do.
"As his manager and his father my job is to get the best possible team behind him to give him the best chance possible. That's what we've done and having 258 management and SoapBox on board is the last piece of the jigsaw. I'm absolutely delighted."
Managing director of 258 Management Freddie Cunningham said: "We are delighted to welcome Campbell into the 258 stable.
"We have had our eye on him a while now, and it is an honour to guide this huge boxing name through the professional ranks. We have total belief in what Campbell can achieve both in and out the ring and cannot wait to get started."
It has also been confirmed Campbell is to work with communications specialists SoapBox London, looking after his public relations and social media work.
SoapBox London co-owner Andy Bell said: "Campbell is one of the most exciting prospects in British sport. He comes from a place that understands exactly what it takes to reach the top and we passionately believe we can help him achieve his goals."
National ABA Novice title
2 x North West titles
Campbell Hatton: "After winning the Novices, it was hard to get matched with fighters with a similar amount of fights so I ended up boxing a lot of national champions and international fighters, which brought me on massively."
Campbell had always worked out in the gym with his uncle Matthew and father Ricky, but it was his grandfather who first took him to Northside ABC when he was 14 to start boxing properly, then he moved to Roy Richardson's Boxing Academy.
