Ricky Hatton
Name: Ricky Hatton
Age: 25
Sport: Boxing
Most likes: Football
Honest Frank's odds: 16/1
Light-welterweight boxing champion Ricky Hatton is hoping to be a knockout success in Superstars.

The 25-year-old has won all of his 32 fights since turning pro in 1997 - 24 of them by knockout.

No wonder then that the Manchester-City-mad boxer is known as 'The Hitman'.

Hatton thinks his punishing training will stand him in good stead for the running events but admits it's been years since he rode a bike.

His football skills should also be up to scratch as he once played at City's school of excellence before deciding on a career in the ring.

Ricky may have a sneaky advantage in the archery after appearing on "A Question of Sport's" mystery guest round as a Robin Hood type figure.

But, even if Hatton fails to hit the bullseye, you can be sure it won't be for lack of effort.
