2006 highlight: Successfully moving up a division.

Hatton stepped up to a higher weight category, but the result was the same - victory.

The 'Hitman' gave up his IBF and WBA light welterweight titles to face American Luis Collazo for the WBA welterweight crown in May.

He prevailed in a bruising battle, and is now unbeaten with 30 KOs from 41 fights.

The Manchester boxer later relinquished his new belt for a January bid to reclaim his IBF championship.
