A look back at Campbell Hatton vs Jesus Ruiz

Hatton became the aggressor from the opening round and it seemed like he was hunting for a KO. While he missed out on that, Hatton thoroughly outpointed his rival. Ruiz couldn’t offer much in response and remained on the wrong end of a one-sided beat down.

However, that isn’t new for Ruiz, as he has not won a single fight in his 11 bout career. Fans may believe that this was why he was handpicked as Campbell’s first opponent.

The super-featherweight division holds a deep roster with big names as the champions. So Campbell Hatton will have to remain active and continue proving his worth to sustain himself in the mix.

Meanwhile, Ricky Hatton has his back and Eddie Hearn also has a similar role to play as the promoter. So, there seems to be a bright future for ‘The Hurricane’.
