EAR TO THE GROUND AND RICKY 'THE HITMAN' HATTON

24/05/2008


Ear to the Ground has been working for the last eight weeks as a production and promotion consultant for Ricky Hatton’s homecoming fight at the City of Manchester Stadium.

On Saturday 24th May the Hitman will meet Mexican light welterweight Juan Lazcano in his home town. Ricky and his team (Punch Promotions Limited) needed support on delivering Europe’s biggest ever boxing match. Ear to the Ground advised on all aspects of the show including venue liaison, production management, policing and concession management.

Our initial work laid the foundation for Punch to negotiate a joint promotion deal with music promoters SJM and City of Manchester Stadium. Ear to the Ground has also agreed a deal to help deliver the commercial exploitation of the fight with procurement and management of all commercial partnerships.

If you are not one of the 55,000 people who has already purchased a ticket for this sell out event the match will be screened live on a pay per view basis with SKY.
